APPLES IN THE CELLAR, PEACHES ON THE SHELF,
I AM GETTING TIRED OF LIVING BY MYSELF.
THE SMALLER THE TREE, THE TIGHTER THE BARK,
THE YOUNGER THE COUPLE, THE MORE THAT THEY SPARK.
AS SURE AS THE VINE GROS 'ROUND THE STUMP
YOU'LL BE MY SUGAR LUMP.
DON'T GO TO LONDON, DON'T GO TO FRANCE,
STAY HERE IN MISSOURI AND GIVE THE BOYS A CHANCE.
YOUR BLUE EYES MAY WATER, YOUR WHITE TEETH MAY GRIT,
BUT YOU'RE ONE LOVELY, I WON'T FORGIT.
