ERIC THE HALF A BEE
Monty Python


A one... two-- A one... two... three... four...

Half a bee, philosophically,

Must, ipso facto, half not be.

But half the bee has got to be

Vis a vis, its entity. D'you see?


But can a bee be said to be

Or not to be an entire bee

When half the bee is not a bee

Due to some ancient injury?


Singing...


La dee dee, one two three,

Eric the half a bee.

A B C D E F G,

Eric the half a bee.


Is this wretched demi-bee,

Half-asleep upon my knee,

Some freak from a menagerie?

No! It's Eric the half a bee!


Fiddle de dum, Fiddle de dee,

Eric the half a bee.

Ho ho ho, tee hee hee,

Eric the half a bee.


I love this hive, employee-ee,

Bisected accidentally,

One summer afternoon by me,

I love him carnally.


He loves him carnally,

Semi-carnally.

The end.


Cyril Connelly?

No; semi-carnally!

Oh.


Cyril Connelly.
