So after lots of thought, I've realized that this song is really profoundly sad:

"I'm bringing home a baby bumble bee.
Won't my mommy be so proud of me?
I'm bringing home a baby bumble bee.
Ouch! He stung me!"

I mean, first of all, the part about the kid's mommy being so proud of them really kills me inside. We, the audience KNOW that if that kid successfully got the bee to his mom, the mom would totally freak out and NOT be proud at all of the kid for bringing a bee home. And yet this poor kid is so excited about how proud his mom will be. And doesn't it totally, TOTALLY suck to do something that you think will result in beaming pride from a loved one, only to have them NOT be proud, or worse, run screaming from the room?

THEN the poor kid gets all his innocent dreams about how sweet this baby bumble bee is when the thing STINGS THE KID!!! Now the kid feels ultimately betrayed, he was all happy about how good he was, finding this bee and bringing it home, taking care of it, probably imagining it becoming the household pet, perhaps envisioning a lovely enclosure that the kid and his proud mom could build together, when all of a sudden his beloved new pet CAUSES HIM PAIN!!! And you KNOW how much it sucks when you're a kid and you're trying to do something nice for an animal or love on it and it BITES YOU. You feel ultimately betrayed!!

This song is HORRIBLE.
