It's no secret

It's no secret

Liner Notes: 

Note: The cowbell present in this track was being worn by a cow at the time.


It's no secret that I like cheese!
It's no secret that I also like bees!
Cheese and bees are beautiful things!
But they rarely go together.

That's why I'm working on a secret,
secret project to combine them both.
You might think it might be a honey cheese,
but I'm really working with something else.

I want bees that can make milk
that can make some cheese.
Instead of annoying beeswax,
there will be honey in cheese.

This work is quite hard.
This work involves many things.
So much cheese!
And more than one bee sting.

I still do this because it's what I love!
I love the bees and I love the cheese.
What kind of cheese are the bees working on?
What kind of cheese will most please me?

I tried a soft cheese but their hive fell apart.
That did not work for me or the bees.

I tried a harder cheese and that's doing well,
but I don't think it's chedder or swiss.
It's got a lovely golden glow,
but it might have something amiss.

Still, I might leave
the beehive
structure in the cheese.
Slice it thin for all to see.

This cheese will be so lovely!
It will be just the thing!
Some people might say it's bubbly,
but I think it's really the bee's knees.

This cheese is super fine.
It's sweet and sublime.
I think I want to have more cheese.
More cheese means I need more bees!

Soon swarms will sweep the sky
devouring everything.
Oh! You thought bees only ate pollen?
That? That was normal bees, not my bee things.

These bees are coming
and they'll eat most everything.

Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

Interesting combo of honeycombs and swiss with a twist. Well done!

Love how your mind works and how this evolves with its bees and cheese! Creative and deliciously fun!

Honey isn't on my diet but cheese sure is. You've got a hive mind attitude to go after another creative angle to a prompt.

So very fun. Except that your cheese bees eat most everything. That's a little dark.

At the risk of being juvenile, it reminds me of a middle school riddle about milk and bees--the answer being boo-bees. You got me thinking about this concept.

I also love bees and cheese. Don't know about bee cheese. Maybe I'll ask my neighbor who has several hives. All with honey I'm sure. Wink

So much cheese!

--That's the moment I like best. I love the deadpan downside remarks that you drop unexpectedly into the flow of unbridled enthusiasms. And I could understand if bees were to make milk, they would need more than nectar in their tummies.

The lyrics are whimsical and silly. The concept of the recording shouldn't work on paper, but oh boy does it work! I love what you've done with this and the concept of bees and cheese made me really laugh! Like BELLY laugh! I was seriously entertained and that's what all good music does. I feel like you're on to something here. This is something really special and you should be proud of yourself! You're amazing dude. You've created a niche that is DOPE.
