Monty Python - Eric The Half A Bee

Take it away Eric the Orchestra Leader

A-one, two, a-one two three four

Half a bee, philosophically
Must, ipso facto, half not be
But half the bee has got to be
Vis a vis, its entity. D'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?

La dee dee, one two three
Eric the half a bee
A b c d e f g
Eric the half a bee

Is this wretched demi-bee
Half-asleep upon my knee
Some freak from a menagerie?
No! It's Eric the half a bee!

Fiddle de dum, 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 love him carnally

He loves him carnally

The End

Cyril Connolly?

No, semi-carnally
