Thread Name: Lyr Req: The Big Effen Bee (Matt McGinn)
Subject: RE: Does anyone know the Effin Bee story?
I used to know it, but it is now long gone. All I can remember are the first two lines and the last line. The version I knew began:

He kept bees in the small town of Effin
An Effin beekeeper was he
He met a sad end and his corpse was exhibited in the museum where the Effin people would come to view his remains:

Stung to death by the big Effin bee!

Try a personal message to Ted from Australia. I think he may know it or else he should be able to get hold of it from a mutual friend in Cairns.
