If he really is the one,
There's an ancient sign sure to tell you
If your search is over and done

Catch a bee and if he don't sting you,
You're in a spell that's just begun
It's a guarantee 'til the end of time
Your true love you have won, have won

When a bee lies sleepin'
In the palm of your hand,
You're bewitched and deep in
Love's long looked after land

Where you'll see a sun-up sky
With a mornin' dew
And where the days go laughin' by
As love comes a-callin' on you

Sleep on, bee, don't waken
Can't believe what just passed
He's mine for the takin'
I'm so happy at last

Maybe I dreams, but he seems
Sweet golden as a crown

A sleepin' bee done told me
I'll walk with my feet off the ground
When my one true love
I has found, has found
