HONEY Welcome Mr Browny Bee,
Won’t you join us for our Morning Tea?
Come into the garden do,
Lots of lovely flowers for you.
Mangolds and roses red,
And sunflowers taller than my head.
Come to where the flowers are,
So you can fill our little honey jar.

Stirring our cakes from top to tow.
Not too fast and not too slow,
Stirring our cakes around we go.
