Ooh, I bet you're wondering how I knew
Bout those bugs' plans to make me blue
The holes in the leaves, they made it clear
That there are invertebrates to fear
It took me by surprise I must say
But this insecticide will save the day, so...

I sprayed it on the grapevine
Pretty soon those bugs will be dyin'
Oh I sprayed it on the grapevine
Cause if I didn't there'd be no grapes for wine
Honey, honey, yeah

You know I'd prefer not to spray
But those bugs I've got to keep away
IPM has clearly got a role
And I'm all for biocontrol
But sometimes the sprays work the best
And put my worst fears to rest, that's why...

I sprayed it on the grapevine
Pretty soon those bugs will be dyin'
Oh I sprayed it on the grapevine
Cause if I didn't there'd be no grapes for wine
Honey, honey, yeah

Yes I'm aware of consumer fear
But the residues will disappear
I understand the environmental view
And worker safety is important too
But I followed all the rules
And it's one of my best tools, so....

I sprayed it on the grapevine
Pretty soon those bugs will be dyin'
Oh I sprayed it on the grapevine
Cause if I didn't there'd be no grapes for wine
Honey, honey, yeah
