Liner Notes: 

Just some of the silly things I have thought while trying to sleep. Needs some fun music.


Like Bees in a Hive
© 2019 Cindy Prince

My body's tired
My mind is not
I keep thinking
Every kind of thought

What is 17x87?
Why do I care?
I wonder if I should
Buy me new underwear?

My thoughts go
Round and round
Forward, backward
Sure to confound
Buzzing, swarming
Like bees in a hive
Silly, crazy
And their going to drive... me insane

Grocery lists
What have I missed?
Oil change on car?
What's the difference
Between a Czar and Tsar?

What's my password
For Tumbler and Twitter?
When was it my daughter
Was needing a sitter?

Did Washington really
Have wooden teeth?
What was my coach's name
When I was thirteen?

Repeat chorus

Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

Oh! Ha. Yes...these things do pop up, don't they, when the mind is idle. A lot of fun lines in this! Good analogy to bees buzzing and swarming!

Thanks for letting me know about this one! Reminds me of what goes on in my mind sometimes when I'm meditating. And I do math in my head when I have trouble sleeping. Also, the password thing drives my family crazy. So, relatable. And fun - if you were listening without having the words in front of you, you'd be waiting to hear what happens next.
I was just thinking about putting another of your songs to music - I was also wanting to tell you that you can do anything you want with the songs we've done. If I don't do this one, I'll do another of yours soon!
