The Bee Song

Album: Big Hearted Arthur Askey And His Silly Little Songs (1938)

Songfacts®:

  • In 1944, Arthur Askey starred in a comedy called Bees In Paradise, but this song is nothing to do with it. Written by Kenneth Blain, who accompanied Askey on the piano, it is typical of the former's silliness, describing a day in the life of a bee. It has also been used in the 21st Century in a TV advertisement, for Rowse Honey. >>
