    APPLES

    by Helen H. Moore

    Apples, apples, what a treat,
    sweet and tart and good to eat.
    Apples green and apples red,
    hang from branches overhead,
    and when they ripen, down they drop,
    so we can taste our apple crop.

    Eat an Apple

    Eat an apple; (Bring right hand to mouth)
    Save the core. (Close right hand in fist)
    Plant the seeds. (Bend down touch hand to ground)
    And grow some more. (Extend both arms out)

    Picking Apples
    (can be sung to the tune of Frere Jacques)

    Picking apples, picking apples,
    'Til we're done, 'til we're done,
    Picking all the apples,
    Picking all the apples,
    'Til we're done, 'til we're done.

    Climb a ladder, climb a ladder,
    In a tree, in a tree
    Hello, everybody;
    Hello, everybody,
    Look at me, look at me.

    Making applesauce, making applesauce
    Swish, swish, swish, swish, swish, swish
    Pouring the applesauce,
    Pouring the applesauce
    In a dish, in a dish.

    Eating applesauce, eating applesauce,
    Yum, yum, yum; yum, yum, yum.
    Eating all the applesauce,
    Eating all the applesauce.
    Now we're done, now we're done.

     

     

     

    Red Apple

    As I walked under the apple tree
    I looked up,
    And what did I see?
    It wasn't a blossom.
    It's wasn't a bee.
    It was a juicy red apple
           Just
                     For
                               Me!

    The Apple Tree

    Away up high
    In an apple tree
    Two red apples
    Smiled at me
    I shook that tree
    As hard as I could
    Down came those apples
    And mmm were they good!

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Ten Red Apples

    Ten red apples grow on a tree
    Five for you and five for me
    Let us shake the tree just so
    And then red apples will fall below
    1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10

    Ten Rosy Apples

    Ten rosy apples high in a tree
    Safely hiding where no one can see
    When the wind goes rocking to and fro
    Ten rosy apples to the ground must go

    A Johnny Appleseed Song

    (sung to Do you Know the Muffin Man)

    Do you know the apple man,
    the apple man, the apple man?
    Do you know the apple man?
    He planted apple seeds.

    He wore a pot upon his head,
    upon his head, upon his head.
    He wore a pot upon his head.
    His name was Johnny Appleseed.

    John Chapman was his real name,
    his real name, his real name.
    John Chapman was his real name;
    But, we call him Johnny Appleseed.

    An Apple Chant

    Apples in the attic,
    Apples in the hall,
    Apples in the summer,
    Apples in the fall.
    Apples make you healthy,
    Apples make you tall.
    I will eat some apples,
    I will eat them all!

     

     

     

     

    A-P-P-L-E

    (to be sung to B-I-N-G-O)

    I know a fruit that grows on trees
    An apple is its name oh
    A-p-p-l-e
    A-p-p-l-e
    A-p-p-l-e
    An apple is its name oh

    In summer and in early Fall
    It's time to pick an apple
    Chorus

    It may be sweet or may be tart
    It's red, or green, or yellow
    Chorus

    A McIntosh or Granny Smith
    A Winesap or Delicious
    Chorus

    Make applesauce or apple juice
    Or apple pie with apples
    Chorus

    A Little Red Apple

    A little red apple
    Hung high in a tree
    I looked up at it
    And it looked down at me
    "Come down, please" I called
    And what do you suppose---
    That little red apple
    Dropped right on my nose!

    I have a Little Apple

    I have a little apple,
    red and round.
    On a tree it is found.
    If you take a bite
    You will see
    Just how tasty it will be!

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Ten Red Apples Growing

    Ten red apples grow on a tree
    (both hands high)
    Five for you and five for me
    (dangle one hand and then the other)
    Let us shake the tree just so
    (shake body)
    and then red apples will fall below
    (hands fall)
    1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10
    (count each finger)

     

     

     

    Ten Red Apples

    Here I have five apples.
    (hold up five fingers on right hand)
    And here are five again.
    (hold up both hands)
    How many apples altogether?
    Why, five and five make ten!

    Picking Apples

    Sung to the tune of Frere Jacques

    Picking apples
    Picking apples
    One by one
    One by one
    Put them in a basket
    Put them in a basket
    Oh, what fun!
    Oh, what fun!

     

     

     

     

     

    Apple

    by Linda Sloan

    Apple, apple way up high,
    I can reach you if I try.
    Climb a ladder,
    Hold on tight.
    Pick you quickly,
    Take a bite!
