I watch as the bees perform
I am beleaguered by their swarm
The queens thought they both could rule
The good nation of Istanbul

Queen one is my mother in law
In queen two my wife I saw
Neither one was fit to rule
The good nation of Istanbul

I am Istanbul the untamed
I am beleaguered by my fame
The two queens should fight for me
I think they are two wild and crazy bees

My future has been foretold
All the way until I get old
Queen one my mother in law
Likes to tell me what she saw

Although queen one’s stinger grew
My life is with my queen two
My mother in law thinks she'll rule
But my wife honeys Istanbul

Makes sense to me Walt, and yes, considering my current circumstances, I did smile a little.
