The Laughing Apple

Slowly let me tell you a story of a tree
An apple tree,
Once in a summertime garden lived a little apple tree
And the man who owned it wanted it to be picked
So he sent for to hire me
Well, I’ve travelled the mountains, and I’ve travelled the sea
But never in my travelling days
Have I ever seen a little apple smile at me!
Laugh, oh laugh a little apple
Autumn is waiting and you’d better be careful,
and it will bring you down
If it ever sees you wearing a frown
So laugh, laugh a little apple
Well all the apples were hiding
Frightening that they might be plucked
And every time that somebody passed
All except that one little apple ducked
Well, I’ve travelled the mountains, and I’ve travelled the sea
But never in my travelling days
Have I ever seen a little apple smile at me!
Laugh, oh laugh a little apple
Autumn is waiting and you’d better be careful,
and it will bring you down
If it ever sees you wearing a frown
So laugh, laugh a little apple
