lyrics

one swallow doesn't make a summer
just like two notes don't make a song
three weddings in august this year
how i wish we could get along, get along

four was the number of times that i called
and four times i hung up
don't know if i should blame this on the weather
or on our own dumb luck (dumb luck!)

if i was feelin' alive i'd be five hundred miles from here

six more hours of travel then i'm back in my own bed
grew my hair seven inches
then gave up and shaved my head
i can't take it anymore!
i'm headed for the east
pack my car with youth, the dogs and you
and a healthy swarm of bees

yeah, and we're feelin' alive headin' five hundred miles from here
yeah we're feelin alive
it's you and me in the SUV
and a long stretch of open road
you and me and the bees
in the SUV
what could possibly go wrong?

we would sit for hours and talk of many things
like who would win the olympics?
and could elvis even sing?
it was going swimmingly
'til i killed you off last spring
how the hell did you never tell me
you were allergic to bee stings?

if i was feelin' alive you'd be(e) right here
and we'd be feelin' alive

but now it's me and the bees
and my aching knees
it ain't much: but it's home
yeah it's me and the bees and my aching knees
and this stupid honeycomb

if i was feelin' alive
i'd be five hundred
five hundred
