Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
By special request two years ago from my darling daughter,
Adrienne Harty (Hillsboro HS, IL / American School, IL) of CA, we have an unusual song today. Thanks, Adrienne!

BONUS - Honeybee - Steam Powered Giraffe


The 2˘ Show is the second studio album by steampunk folk rock band Steam Powered Giraffe, released on May 23, 2012.[1] The album follows sequentially after their first album, Album One, and depicts a trip across America and its various cultures.[2] The song "Honeybee" was the hit single from the album.[3]

It is the last album with singer and bassist Jonathan Sprague, and also the first album with drummer and backing vocalist Sam Luke and guitarist Michael Philip Reed.

Recorded by Steam Powered Giraffe, 2012

You didn't have to look my way
Your eyes still haunt me to this day
But you did. Yes, you did

You didn't have to say my name
Ignite my circuits and start a flame
But you did

Oh, Turpentine erase me whole
('Cause I) don't want to live my life alone
(Well I) was waiting for you all my life

Set me free, my...honey-

You didn't have to smile at me
Your grin's the sweetest that I've ever seen
But you did. Yes you did

You didn't have to offer your hand
'Cause since I've kissed it I am at your command
But you did

Oh, Turpentine erase me whole
I don't want to live my life alone
I was waiting for you all my life

Set me free, my...honey-

Hello Goodbye, Twas nice to know you
How I find myself without you
That I'll never know
I let myself go

Hello Goodbye, I'm rather crazy
And I never thought I was crazy
But what do I know?
Now you have to go

Hello Goodbye, Twas nice to know you
How I find myself without you
Hello Goodbye, I'm rather crazy
And I never thought I was crazy

That I'll never know.
I let myself go.
But what do I know?
Now you have to go.
