Roger Miller — Honey lyrics

See the tree how big it's grown but friend it 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
Then first snow came and she ran out to brush the snow away so it wouldn't die
Came running in all excited slipped and almost hurt herself and I laughed till I cried
She was always young at heart kinda dumb and kinda smart I loved her so
And I surprised her with a puppy kept me up all Christmas night two years ago
And it would sure embarrass her when I came in from working late cause I would know
That she'd been sittin' there and cryin' over some sad and silly late late show
And honey I miss you and I'm being good and 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 and caught her crying needlessly in the middle of the day
And 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 and I'd love to be with you if only I could
One day when I wasn't 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
Yes now my life's an empty stage where honey lived and honey played and love grew up
And a small cloud passes overhead and cries down on the flower bed that honey loved
And see the tree how big it's grown but friend it 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
