Lyrics verse:
HAVE NO USE
FOR SWEETS
OF ANY KIND
SINCE THE DAY
YOU CAME AROUND,
FROM THE START
I INSTANTLY
MADE UP MY MIND
SWEETER SWEETNESS
CAN'T BE FOUND.
YOU'RE SO SWEET,
CAN'T BE BEAT,
NOTHING SWEETER
EVER STOOD ON FEET.

Chorus:
EVERY HONEY BEE
FILLS WITH JEALOUSY
WHEN THEY SEE YOU
OUT WITH ME.
I DON'T BLAME THEM
GOODNESS KNOWS,
HONEYSUCKLE ROSE.
WHEN YOU'RE PASSING BY,
FLOWERS DROOP AND SIGH,
AND I KNOW
THE REASON WHY.
YOU'RE MUCH SWEETER,
GOODNESS KNOWS,
HONEYSUCKLE ROSE.

DON'T BUY SUGAR,
YOU JUST HAVE TO
TOUCH MY CUP.
YOU'RE MY SUGAR,
IT'S SWEET
WHEN YOU STIR IT UP.

WHEN I'M TAKING SIPS
FROM YOUR TASTY LIPS,
SEEMS THE HONEY
FAIRLY DRIPS,
YOU'RE CONFECTION,
GOODNESS KNOWS,
HONEYSUCKLE ROSE.

Lyrics I'M FLYING HIGH,
BUT I'VE GOT A FEELING I'M FALLING,
FALLING FOR NOBODY ELSE BUT YOU.
YOU CAUGHT MY EYE,
AND I'VE GOT A FEELING I'M FALLING,
SHOW ME THE RING
AND I'LL JUMP RIGHT THROUGH!

I USED TO TRAVEL SINGLE-O,
WE CHANCED TO MINGLE-O,
NOW I'M A TINGLE OVER YOU.

HEY MISTER PARSON STAND BY,
FOR I'VE GOT A FEELING I'M FALLING,
FALLING FOR NOBODY ELSE BUT YOU!
