    La da da da da, da da da da
    Let's go

    Oh, now you can have me
    When you want me
    You simply ask me to be there (uh huh)
    And you're the only one
    Who makes me come running
    'Cause what you got
    Is far beyond compare, ooh

    And it's just like honey (yeah)
    When your love (when your love) comes over me (comes over me)
    Oh, baby, I've got a dependency
    Always strung out
    For another taste of your honey (ooh)

    It's like honey when it washes over me
    You know sugar never ever was so sweet
    And I'm dying for ya
    Crying for ya (crying)
    I adore ya
    One hit of your love affected me (yeah)
    And I'm strung out on you, darling
    Don't you see (every night)
    Every night and day I can hardly wait
    For another taste of honey (honey)

    Honey, I can't describe
    How good it feels inside (ooh, honey)
    Honey, I can't describe
    How good it feels inside

    Oh, I can't be elusive with you honey (I like that)
    'Cause it's blatant that I'm feeling you (yeah)
    And it's too hard for me to leave abruptly
    'Cause you're the only thing I wanna do

    And it's just like honey
    When your love (when your love) comes over me (comes over me)
    Oh, baby, I've got a dependency (so addicted to ya, honey)
    Always strung out
    For another taste of your honey (honey)

    It's like honey when it washes over me
    You know sugar never ever was so sweet
    And I'm dying for ya
    Crying for ya
    I adore ya
    One hit of your love addicted me (I need you babe)
    And I'm strung out on you, darling (ooh, your love addicted me)
    Don't you see (I can't wait)
    Every night and day I can hardly wait (for another)
    For another taste of honey (Baby, I can hardly wait)

    Harlem world we won't stop, for Mariah, you're on fire
    Harlem world we won't stop, so Mariah, take us higher
    Break it down

    Now, what we gonna do right here
    Is we gonna smooth it out
    (Oh, oh, honey got me hooked on you)
    MC, and she won't stop

    It's like honey when it washes over me
    You know sugar never ever was so sweet

    You know sugar never ever was so sweet
    And I'm dying for ya
    Crying for ya
    I adore ya
    One hit of your love addicted me
    And I'm strung out on you, darling

  • Barry from Sauquoit, NyOn September 7th 1997, "Honey' by Mariah Carey debut at #1 on Billboard's Hot Top 100 chart, it remained in the top spot for three weeks...
    In 1997 the song’s co-composer, Puffy Daddy, would also have a record debut at #1; “I’ll Be Missing You” with Faith Evans for 11 weeks…
    As stated above it was the third time Mariah Carey had a record debut at #1; "Fantasy" {for 8 weeks in 1995} and "One Sweet Day" with Boyz II Men {for a record 16 weeks in 1995}...
    There have been twenty-two records that have debut at #1 on the Top 100; the first was "You Are Not Alone" by Michael Jackson in August 1995 and the latest, "Shake It Off" by Taylor Swift, just one week ago on August 31st, 2014.
  • Theresa from Murfreesboro, TnI kinda lost interest in Mariah after this song was released, she changed too much.
  • Seronica from Jefferson, GaHow is she swimming with high heels?
