Bumble Bee Blues
Memphis Minnie Lyrics


Bumble bee, bumble bee, please come back to me
Bumble bee, bumble bee, please come back to me
He got the best old stinger any bumble bee that I ever seen

He stung me this morning,
I been looking for him all day long
He stung me this morning,
I been looking for him all day long
Lord, it got me to the place,
hate to see my bumble bee leave home

Bumble bee, bumble bee, don't be gone so long
Bumble bee, bumble bee, don't be gone so long
You're my bumble bee and you're needed here at home

I can't stand to hear him buzz, buzz, buzz
Come in, bumble bee, want you to stop your fuss
You're my bumble bee and you know your stuff
Oh, sting me, bumble bee, until I get enough

Bumble bee, bumble bee, don't be gone so long
Bumble bee, bumble bee, don't be gone so long
You're my bumble bee and you're needed here at home

I don't mind you going, ain't going to stay so long
Don't mind you going, don't be gone so long
You're my bumble bee and you're needed here at home

I can't stand to hear him buzz, buzz, buzz
Come in, bumble bee, I want you to stop your fuss
You're my bumble bee and you know your stuff
Oh, sting me bumble bee, until I get enough

She's so wonderful __ should be considered as one of great blues singers EVER

Paul Jeavons

she was accepted as a true blues player by the best male blues players of that era and the truth is the blues belong to women, they are the ones that suffer the most . listen to fado or morena
