A Taste of Honey…The Beatles Songs – A to Z Ref 22

The Beatles A Taste of honey

A taste of honey… tasting much sweeter than wine.

I dream of your first kiss, and then,
I feel upon my lips again,
A taste of honey… tasting much sweeter than wine.

I will return, yes I will return,
I’ll come back for the honey and you.

Yours was the kiss that awoke my heart,
There lingers still, ‘though we’re far apart,
That taste of honey… tasting much sweeter than wine.

I will return, yes I will return,
I’ll come back (he’ll come back) for the honey (for the honey) and you.

“A Taste of Honey”- Another cover song.  This one has lyrics more thoroughly embarrassing then “Mr. Moonlight,” and musically, its just as awful.  It’s some kind of dark samba like shuffle with utterly bizarre emotional and lyrical moments with the main dramatic hook being biggest offender, “A taste of HONEY!…tasting, much sweeter, then wine, doo doo do dooo!”  The thing about this song is that it’s terrifyingly catchy.  You will probably be humming the start and stop melody for a week in the back of your brain after hearing, so be warned.  Perhaps the Beatles recorded it to show off their range at playing show tunes, or perhaps they appreciated its catchy refrain, the number one ingredient they were searching for in their own songwriting.  Whatever they were really thinking when making “A Taste of Honey,” is hard to fathom, and thus can only be appreciated with irony, delicious as it might be.
