The Bee Keeps – Sustainable Life

Well you can tell by the way I nasally talk
I wear womens pants; skin tone of chalk
Bad tattoos and 1/2 a vegan
I have a filthy beard and date a Megan
And now it’s all right, it’s ok
My Daddy’s check is on the way
Real Brooklynites can’t understand
The NY Times loves us man!

Whether you’re a beta or Williamsburg waiter
Sustainable Life, Sustainable Life
The cupcakes are a bakin’, my scallion limbs are shakin’
Sustainable Life, Sustainable Life
LIKE – YAH – LIKE – YAH Sustainable Life Sustainable Life
YAH YAH YAH YAH Sustainable Life

Well I get up at noon then I get high
Put my tight jeans on; try to zip my fly
I splatter paint on my repurposed shoes
I’m a kickball champ – trophy if I lose
Like yah it’s all right, it’s ok
Can’t tell if I am straight or gay
Real Brooklynites can’t understand
The NY Times loves us man!

I’m a rent inflator and a gallery curator
Sustainable Life, Sustainable Life
My Dad says I’m the smartest, Mom says I’m an artist
Sustainable Life, Sustainable Life
Like Yah Yah Yah, Sustainable Life Sustainable Life
LIKE – YAH – LIKE – YAH Sustainable Life

My life went nowhere, but Mommy helps me
But Mommy helps me, YAH!
My life went nowhere, but Mommy helps me
But Mommy helps me, YAH!

Well you can smell me when I take a walk
I’m not a man; shaped like a stalk
My music sucks, I’m a beekeeper
Been kicked around by the hipster beater
Yah, it’s all right, we’re all the same
Organic food and bike lanes
Real Brooklynites can’t understand
The NY Times loves us man!

We like attention to be on us
We swim in the Gowanus
Sustainable Life Sustainable Life
I look like I am starving
As I ride my Penny Farthing
Sustainable Life Sustainable Life
YAH YAH YAH YAH Sustainable Life Sustainable Life
YAH YAH YAH YAH Sustainable Life

My life went nowhere, but Mommy helps me
But Mommy helps me, YAH!
My life went nowhere, but Mommy helps me
But Mommy helps me, YAH!
