Bobby Goldsboro - Honey
Tekst en muziek: Bobby Russell
(1968)






See the tree, how big its grown, but friend it hasn’t been too long, it wasn’t big
I laughed at her and she got mad, the first day that she planted, it was just a twig
Then the first snow came and she ran up to brush the snow away, so it wouldn’t die
Came running in all excited, slipped and almost hurt herself and I laughed till I cried



She was always young at heart, kinda dumb and kinda smart and I loved her so
And I surprised her with a puppy, kept me up all Christmas Eve, two years ago
And it would sure embarrass her when I came in from working late, ’cause I would know
That she’d been sitting there and crying over some sad and silly late, late show



And honey, I miss you and I’m being good
And I’d love to be with you, if only I could



She wrecked the car and she was sad and so afraid that I’d be mad, but what the heck
Though I pretended hard to be, guess you could say she saw through me and hugged my neck
I came home unexpectedly and caught her crying needlessly in the middle of the day
And it was in the early Spring, when flowers bloom and robins sing, she went away



And honey, I miss you and I’m being good
And I’d love to be with you, if only I could



One day while I was not at home, while she was there and all alone, the angels came
Now all I have is memories of Honey and I wake up nights and call her name
Now my life’s an empty stage where Honey lived and Honey played and love grew up
And a small cloud passes overhead and cries down on the flower bed that Honey loved



And see the tree how big it’s grown, but friend it hasn’t been too long, it wasn’t big
And I laughed at her and she got mad the first day that she planted, it was just a twig
