Honey

Honey
Music: Grace McDunnough
Lyrics: Salome Strangelove

Well, her mamma charmed bees just outside of New Orleans
Her pa could’ve been any of half a dozen men
Who traded off their wages for a jug of homemade wine
And sometimes stayed for more than just a shot of cheap moonshine

Amber eyes and blood red lips
Fortunes told by fingertip
She’ll sell you Creole spells for love and money
Just don’t ever ask to buy one drop of Honey

Well, the women of the bayou have always been taboo
You know they’re shilling dark secrets in those shallow waters
And you know every soul that walks the Delta fears her
But the tides can’t stop the fools that must float near her

Golden rings and voodoo beads
Paper dolls and effigies
She’ll sell you Creole spells for love and money
Just don’t ever ask to buy a drop of Honey

When the moon is ripe
Scented honeycomb
Drifts through the night
And calls her lovers home

Oh her pa may have been any
Of half a dozen men
Or then again
Or then again

Tawny curls and silken skin
A devil’s daughter deep within
You can have her Creole spells for love and money
But don’t ever ask to buy a drop of Honey
Don’t ever ask to see
Don’t ever ask to taste
One drop of Honey

Don’t sell your soul
For Honey
