  • Sweet sweet wild honey bee
    Eat up eat up eat up honey
    Mama I'm tellin' you as sure as I'm standing here
    She's my girl and that's the way I'm keeping it now mama dear
    No good will it do you to stand there and frown at me
    The girl's got my heart and my love's coming down on me
    My love's coming down since I got a taste of wild honey
    You know she's got the sweetness of a honey bee
    Wild honey
    She got it on and stung me good yes sirree
    With all the other stud bees buzzing all around her hive
    She singled me out single handed took me alive
    Well can you can you gonna take my life eating up her wild honey
    (Sweet sweet wild honey bee)
    (Eat up eat up eat up honey)
    Oh mama she's sweeter
    Gettin' sweeter
    Sweeter sweeter
    Wild honey
    Let me tell you how she really got to my soul
    It ain't funny
    The way she make want to sing a little rock 'n' roll
    There's nothing quite nice as a kiss of wild honey
    I break my back workin' just to save me some money
    So I can spend my life with her
    Sock it to me wild honey
    Wild honey she's mine
    Wild honey she's mine Writer/s: BRIAN WILSON, MICHAEL LOVE

  • Steve Dotstar from Los Angeles, CaI've never heard this song with the vocal..just love the backing track from Stack O'Tracks album. very cool sounding!
  • Mario from Esky, MiThere is a theremin line played in sync with an organ throughout the song.
    The backing track can be heard on the official Beach Boys' Stack-o-Tracks album.
    This song was inspired by one of Brian Wilson's favorite foods! The song has never been mixed into stereo and it would be hard to, since most of the master tapes for this song are lost.
  • Andrew from Birmingham, United StatesOops, I meant "Long live the Beach Boys!" Again, no offense to Carl and Dennis.
  • Andrew from Birmingham, United StatesThis is one of my favorites of the Beach Boys; of the many groups, the Beach Boys are some of my favorites themselves. This is one heck of a song. Great beat; great lyrics; great everything! Love live the Beach Boys! Oh, no offense, Carl and Dennis Wilson.
  • Niall from Dublin, IrelandCarl was really finding his voice with this song
