Eric the Half a Bee

(spoken) Half a bee, philosophically, 
Must, ipso facto, half not be. be. 
But half the bee has got to be, be 
A vis-a-vis, its entity - 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? 

A la-dee-dee, a 1-2-3 
Eric the half a bee. 
Eric the half a bee. 

Is this little demi-bee, 
Half asleep upon my knee, 
Some freak from a menagerie? 
No!  He's Eric the half a bee. 

A fiddle de dum, a 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 loved him carnally. 
He loves him carnally. 
Semi carnally. 
The end. 
Cyril Connely? 
No, semi carnally! 
[Whistle end of tune.]
