A Sleepin’ Bee

A Sleepin' Bee

A Sleepin’ Bee by Edwin Roman

“When a bee lies sleepin’
In the palm o’ your hand
You’re bewitch’d and deep in love’s
Long look’d after land
Where you’ll see a sun-up sky
With the mornin’ new
And where the days go laughin’ by
As love comes a-calling on you
Sleep on, bee, don’t waken,
Can’t believe what just passed
He’s mine for the takin’
I am happy at last.
Maybe I dreams, but he seems
Sweet golden as a crown,
A sleepin’ bee done told me
I will walk with my feet off the ground
When my one true love I has found
Sleep on, bee, don’t waken,
Can not believe what just passed
He’s mine for the takin’
I am happy at last…
Maybe I dreams, but he seems
Golden as a crown,
A sleepin’ bee told me
I will walk with my feet off the ground
When my one true love
I has found…”

Song composed by Harold Arlen with Lyrics by Arlen and Truman Capote
