King Bee

I have 4 versions of this song in my collection. Hard to choose which I like best. Muddy Waters, Rolling Stones or Kenny Wayne Shepherd are good, but I think Slim Harpo's version probably tips the scale.
Well, BUZZ a while.

I'm A King Bee

Well I'm a king bee
Buzzing around your hive
Well I'm a king bee, baby
Buzzing around your hive
Yeah I can make honey baby
Let me come inside

Well I'm a king bee
Want you to be my queen
Well I'm a king bee, baby
Want you to be my queen
Together we can make honey
The world has never seen

Well, buzz a while...
Sting you bad...
Well I'm a king bee
Can buzz all night long

Well I'm a king bee, baby
Can buzz all night long
Yeah I can buzz better baby
When your man is gone.

It's a toss up which version I prefer, Slim's or the Stones, but any way you look at it, a great song. Terrific shot too to go with it! V

Slim's version is very good, despite the slender dynamic range of the recording...have a personal bias to the Stones' take though, having spent so much time working out the guitar part..

Excellent composition, and quite effective in B&W. V.

Interesting choice of colour, but it goes well with the version I prefer...Muddy Waters!

Outstanding photo and it certainly goes well with the lyrics. V
