Please the Bees

Plants and pollinators
depend on one another,
They’ve got each other’s backs
like sisters and brothers.

Plants provide sweet nectar;
Pollinators give a vector
For pollen to be transferred
By the butterfly, bee, and song-bird.

It’s called mutualism,
a way of coexisting,
Where each one helps the other
Benefiting and assisting.

So please, please, please,
please the bees, bees, bees,
won’t you please, please, please, please, please (the bees!)
Give them native habitat,
Yeah, that’s where the nectar’s at,
Pollination is what they excel at. (Bees rock!)
Here them buzzing about, making such a riot, (Ri-ot!)
Don’t let their sweet, sweet songs go quiet (qui-et)...
Please, please, please,
please the bees, bees, bees,
won’t you please, please, please the bees? (Please the bees!)

Gather round you all,
And let’s talk pollination:
It’s a serious situation
across the nation.

Demand for food’s increasing;
Pollinators are decreasing.
Changing plant diversity;
Pesticide adversity.

Loss of suitable habitat,
For the bees, butterflies, birds, and bats,
Could mean trouble for us all...
will we answer the call?

Please, please please,
please the bees, bees, bees,
won’t you please, please, please, please, please (the bees!)
Give them native habitat,
Yeah, that’s where the nectar’s at,
Pollination is what they excel at. (Bees rock!)
Hear them buzzing about, making such a riot, (Ri-ot!)
Don’t let their sweet, sweet songs go quiet (quiet)...
Please, please, please,
please the bees, bees, bees,
won’t you please, please, please- the bees? (Please the bees!)

Pollination,
Adaptation,
Habitation...
(Please the bees!)

Conservation,
Appreciation,
Across the nation...
(U-S-A!)

Please, please please,
please the bees, bees, bees,
won’t you please, please, please, please, please (the bees!)
Give them native habitat,
Yeah, that’s where the nectar’s at,
Pollination is what they excel at. (Bees rock!)
Hear them buzzing about, making such a riot, (Ri-ot!)
Don’t let their sweet, sweet songs go quiet (quiet)...
Please, please, please,
please the bees, bees, bees,
won’t you please, please, please the bees? (Please the bees!)
