    One fine day by a lake in sunny California, honeybird was stung by bees! This is the story of what went down and why Quemby the Queen Bee sent her little fighter bees on the prowl. Blame it on her buzz...and the sticky-sweet pink lemonade.

lyrics

Buzz, buzz buzz, the bees go buzz
Quemby the Queen Bee, she got buzzed
The Queen Bee was buzzed,
and you know this happened when she was buzzed

The bees by the lake hid under a fallen log
waiting for me, the breezes swayed
Zip Zap stingers in my skin
I was under attack (and I thought)

Why am I under attack? Why? Why?

I was so sticky sweet, showered in pink lemonade
You spilled it on me, riding on the bus
did you want me, to get bit by stinger bees
or was it to get close to me

Stingers in my closed-toed shoes
and I ran into the shower and I yelled out to you
but Quemby was in her hive
she heard me yelling
she wanted me alive
because she knew that ...

I was so sticky sweet …

* BEHIND THE SCENES *
********************

Un giorno da mia zia in una zona rurale nel nord della California, le davo una mano a piantare dei fiori nel suo giardino,che si trova vicino a un lago. Ho alzato un pezzo di tronco di legno, per immediatamente sentire un casino di Buzz Buzz e poi per accorgermene che c'erano tantissimi api che mi pungevano! Da quella esperienza è nato questo brano "Quemby the Queen Bee", dove io immagino una ape regina che manda i suoi api a pungermi...

Poi, siccome sull autobus all'andata a visitare la mia zia, avevo una bottiglia di limonata "snapple pink lemonade" ma siccome Diego non l'aveva chiuso bene, è andato dappertutto (molto appiccicoso!), quindi ho collegato le due cose e nel ritornello canto:

"I'm so sticky sweet, showered in pink lemonade, you spilled it on me...did you want me to get bit by stinger bees or was it to get close to me?"

Cioè Diego ha versato il drink perchè voleva che le api mi pungessero ... o per avvicinarsi a me?
