Sommigen mogen zijn vertolking van Honey dan wel beschouwen als een van de slechtste liedjes aller tijden, het nummer legt Bobby Goldsboro bepaald geen windeieren. Eerst is het in 1968 een internationaal succes, daarna belandt Honey in het Verenigd Koninkrijk in de jaren zeventig nogmaals bovenaan de hitlijsten. Zelf is de zanger dan vooral actief in de wereld van de countrymuziek.

Trivia

Wist je dat? Honey is Bobby's enige nummer 1-hit in de Billboard Hot 100 en de Billboard Country-hitlijst.

Songtekst

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 the first snow came
And she ran out to brush the snow away
So it wouldn't die
Came runnin' 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
And I loved her so
And I surprised her with a puppy
Kept me up all Christmas Eve
Two years ago

And it would sure embarrass her
When I came in from workin' 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 bein' 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 cryin' 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 bein' good
And I'd love to be with you
If only I could

One day while I was not at home
While 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

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
And I laughed at her and she got mad
The first day that she planted it
Was just a twig
