This is a bee.

She is a happy bee.

She is happy being a bee.

She buzzes when she’s happy.

 

She doesn’t want to be a baboon.

She wants to be a bee.

She wants to fly,

But baboons can’t fly,

And flying makes her happy.

She buzzes when she’s happy.

 

She doesn’t want to be a badger.

She wants to be a bee.

She wants to find flowers,

But badgers don’t find flowers,

And finding flowers makes her happy.

She buzzes when she’s happy.

 

She doesn’t want to be a bunny.

She wants to be a bee.

She wants to collect pollen.

But bunnies don’t collect pollen,

And collecting pollen makes her happy.

She buzzes when she’s happy.

 

She doesn’t want to be a bison.

She wants to be a bee.

She wants to make honey,

But bisons don’t make honey,

And making honey makes her happy.

She buzzes when she’s happy.

 

She doesn’t want to be a bear.

She wants to be a bee.

She wants to buzz,

But bears can’t buzz,

And buzzing makes her happy.

She buzzes when she’s happy.

 

This is a bee.

She is a happy bee.

She is happy being a bee.

She buzzes when she’s happy.

She buzzes a lot.
