Merry Christmas & Happy New Year

Here's some Christmas-time silliness for you (though I wouldn't blame you if you skipped straight to the end.)

To the tune of Ding, Dong Merrily on High

Ding, dong happy in the hive
The winter bees are clustering
Ding, dong they are still alive
And new-laid brood are mustering
Bu-u-u-u-u-u-u-u-u-u-u-uzz, Long live her majesty, the queen
Bu-u-u-u-u-u-u-u-u-u-u-uzz, Long live her majesty, the queen

E'en so their beekeeper
lets fondant be a hungen'
and prays "oh, please, heaven, please"
may spring soon be a sprungen
Bu-u-u-u-u-u-u-u-u-u-u-uzz, Long live her majesty, the queen
Bu-u-u-u-u-u-u-u-u-u-u-uzz, Long live her majesty, the queen

Pray guard your remaining honey stores, 
you frugal winter workers
and warm your brood until the spring
you Carniolan nurses
Bu-u-u-u-u-u-u-u-u-u-u-uzz, Long live her majesty, the queen
Bu-u-u-u-u-u-u-u-u-u-u-uzz, Long live her majesty, the queen
