Martin, Dean - Honey Lyrics




See the tree how big it's grown
But friend that hasn't been too long it wasn't big
I laughed at her and she got mad
The first day that she planted it was just a twig.

And the first snow came and she ran out
To brush the snow away it wouldn't die
Came running in all excited slipped
And almost hurt herself I laughed till I cried.

She was always young at heart
Kinda dumb and kinda smart, I loved her so
I surprised her with a puppy
Kept me up all Christmas Eve two years ago.

It would sure embarrass her
When I came in from working late 'cause I would know
That she'd been sittin' there
And crying over some sad and silly late, late show.

And honey, I miss you I'm being good
I'd love to be with you if only I could.

She wrecked the car and she was sad
And so afraid that I'd be mad but what the heck
Though I pretended hard to be
Guess you could say she saw through me and hugged my neck.

I came home unexpectedly
Caught her crying needlessly in the middle of the day
It was in the early spring
When flowers bloom and robins sing, she went away.

And honey, I miss you and I'm being good
I'd love to be with you if only I could.

Yes, one day while I wasn't at home
When she was there and all alone the angels came
Now all I have is memories of honey
And I wake up nights and call her name.

Now my life's an empty stage
Where honey lived and honey played and love grew up
A small cloud passes overhead
And cries down on the flower bed that honey loved.

See the tree how big it's grown
But friend it hasn't been too long, it wasn't big
Laughed at her and she got mad
The first day that she planted it was just a twig...

    Bobby Goldsboro wrote a great song but dino had the right blend of reflection and sadness to make it unforgettable her so much better known for his comedy both with lewis and in his variety show and roasts but he may have been as good as Perry como and certainly on par with Frankie in his singing...few that multi talented anymore bravo dino

  62. Megan Privett

    dang i wish i was that little girl at minute 35 lol :P

  63. Shirley Borces

    So Dean Martin is also the original singer of this song?

    Toni Wilson

    when I was growing up in the 1970's this was sung by Bobby Goldboro
    I think he wrote and sung it 1st. Will have to double check that.

    Toni Wilson

    Just check on the history of this song. It was 1st wrote by a song writer also name Bobby??
    It was 1st given to the Kingston trio to sing but in 1968 it was given to Bobby Goldsboro to sing. like I said this was a big part of my teenage years so looking back into the history of this song was interesting.

    Toni Wilson

    The writer of this song was a song writer of Bobby Russell.

    ThePanormus

    @Toni Wilson Right ! Bobby Goldsboro was the first singer.

  64. George Rosner

    Beautiful song..
