Five Bees
(adding 5 + 5)

5 bees from hives,
Fry peas and pies,
To please some trees,
Don't ask me why...

5 more bees,
5 more hives,
Fry fries with cheese,
Don't ask me why...

The first
5 bees,
Their peas and pies,
Meet the bees,
With cheese and fries,
10 bees,
Take their surprise,
To the trees,
Let's find out why...

10 bees,
Give gifts to trees,
For holding hives,
So high and dry...

5 + 5 = 10
