VARROA! . .. From the Musical ‘Pesti-Side Story’

Varroa . . . (spoken by Tony)



Tony - sings:

"The finest excuse I have ever heard:

Varroa ,Varroa, Varroa, Varroa . . .

To explain all dead bees - to a doubtful world

Varroa, Varroa, Varroa, Varroa . . .



Varroa!

I've just found a mite named Varroa,

I’ll use it to deny,

What’s killing every honey-bee

Varroa!

I’ve just kissed a mite called Varroa

The finest Alibi

When pollinators die

You see?


Varroa!

Say it soft,- and the money’s flowing,
Say it loud, - and my bank account’s growing.

Varroa,
I'll never stop saying Varroa!
