I Be a Wasp

You may see a bee, but a bee is not me,
I’m a wasp, I be a wasp.
I have a bad reputation for causing havoc in the kitchen
And general consternation
When there’s sugar around, or jam to be found
But that’s only because I’m a wasp that is lost,
And seeking some sweetness at the end of my days
Want to go out in a jam-filled haze

I’m a wasp that is lost, have pity on me
Though I sting, I’m a wasp, not a bee.

I worked all year to serve my Queen
And now there’s no job left for me.
It’s all falling apart, the home’s a mess
I’m drunk and disorderly.
I can’t work out where to go in life
So I hover around your jammy knife

I’m a wasp that is lost, have pity on me
Though I sting, I’m a wasp, not a bee.

So hide the sugar, and cover the jam
And don’t pay attention to me
I’ll fly away on drooping wings
In thirst and misery.
On some rotting fruit I will end my days
Buzzing around, all sugar-crazed

I’m a wasp that is lost, have pity on me
Though I sting, I’m a wasp not a bee.
