Lyrics

I'm bringing home my baby bumble bee
Won't my Mommy be so proud of me
I'm bringing home my baby bumble bee -
OUCH! It stung me!

I'm squishin' up my baby bumble bee
Won't my Mommy be so proud of me
I'm squishin' up my baby bumble bee -
EW! What a mess!

I'm lickin' up my baby bumble bee
Won't my Mommy be so proud of me
I'm lickin' up my baby bumble bee -
ICK! I feel sick!

I'm barfin' up my baby bumble bee
Won't my Mommy be so proud of me
I'm barfin' up my baby bumble bee -
OH! What a mess!

I'm wipin' up my baby bumble bee
Won't my Mommy be so proud of me
I'm wipin' up my baby bumble bee -
OOPS! Mommy's new towel!

I'm wringin' out my baby bumble bee
Won't my Mommy be so proud of me
I'm wringing out my baby bumble bee -
Bye-Bye baby bumble bee!

I'm not sure it's such a great idea to teach children to harm creatures they should never have bothered. Particularly when pollinators are vital and decreasing in number for a reason scientists cannot discover.

Use this song to teach a child the motions to wash hands; grab the soap(bumblebee), squishing bee (rub on soap), wiping off bee (rinsing motion in water)... see? Fun and memorable, plus it helps to keep the child washing long enough to really get hands clean!

Great enthusiasm. Although the lyrics are a little weird. Your barfing, licking, moping. What?

My daughter (now age 11) learnt this when she was in Rainbows - she sang it at the age of about 5 and it was hilarious with the actions! We were just 'reminiscing' about it driving along in the car earlier today and we couldn't exactly remember the proper words! Now I'm delighted to have found them - except that she remembers they sang "blurking" instead of "barfing"!

I'm agree with Tanya from Oshawa. I would like to heard another version, without harming the bee. A 5 years old boy from my daycare doesn't like it, because he says "I don't want to kill the bee". If we can find that version will be great.
