New Bumble Bee
Memphis Minnie Lyrics


I got a bumble bee, don't sting nobody but me
I got a bumble bee, don't sting nobody but me

And I tell the world, he got all the stinger I need
And he makes better honey, any bumble bee I ever see
And he makes better honey, any bumble bee I ever see
And when he makes it, oh how he make me scream

He get to flyin' and buzzin', stingin' everybody he meet
He get to flyin' and buzzin', stingin' everybody he meet
Lord I wonder why, my bumble bee want to mistreat me
Where my bumble bee gone?
Wonder where's my bumble bee gone?

I been lookin' for him, my bumble bee so long so long
My bumble bee got ways, just like a natural man
My bumble bee got ways, just like a natural man
He's stingin' somebody, everywhere he land

It's possible that the idea of "blues" as a particular type of music originated in Memphis. Or at least was around in Memphis by 1909. (We don't know when Handy gave his 1912 "Memphis Blues" that title.) The two earliest known newspaper articles in the country to characterize blues as a type of music were a 4/16/10 article about John W. F. "Johnnie" Woods (performing in Florida), who grew up in Memphis and was performing there before 1909, and a 7/16/10 article about H. "Kid" Love (performing in Texas), who had also previously performed in Memphis. (But it's worth noting that a piece of sheet music identifying the tune as a "Blues" had been published in New Orleans in 1909.) In 1909 Minnie was living near Memphis and was 12 years old.
