  • Song Lyrics:
    They're coming...at the rate of 300 miles a year...
    They started in Brazil,
    And came north through Nicaragua
    We call them killer bees
    The Sandinistas call them their "freedom fighters"
    An evil empire of Godless, Marxist bugs
    How can they be stopped?!
    The Bees
    The killer bees are coming
    Spreading fear and terror in our land
    They're always buzzing, never humming
    They're going to swarm across the Rio Grande
    Insects need no green cards
    They fly too low to be picked up on radar
    How can you just say "no" to bugs?
    And as they spread their Marxist pollen from flower to flower,
    They corrupt our pure, all American bees
    Remember, that the words of the devil are always dipped in honey!
    The Bees
    The killer bees are coming
    Spreading fear and terror in our land
    They're always buzzing, never humming
    They're going to swarm across the Rio Grande
    July 4th, 1990, when the dreaded bees are due to hit our border
    We'll have "Cans across America" Insecticide Program
    And every able citizen will smoke cigars
    And from San Diego to Brownsville
    Special SWAT teams will stand shoulder to shoulder...
    Remember America, these are red bees... all workers, no drones!
    The Bees
    The killer bees are coming
    Spreading fear and terror in our land
    They're always buzzing, never humming
    Get our your can of spray and make a stand!
    (I B Emerson)
