The wind blew hard
The apples fell from the tree,
I picked them up myself,
I did it just for you and me.
I have been a busy girl,
I have worked hard today,
I want an apple pie please,
Can you make me one today?
You make the very best apple pies,
And tasty apple dumplings too,
I have a basket filled to the top,
If you would, oh Mommie could you?
I really think I need to rest,
My little body is tired you see.
That is a big bunch of apples,
That fell from that big ole apple tree.
The sun is warm shining down on me,
I'll rest next to the tree for a while,
I am worn out from gathering fruit,
I'm a very tired and sleepy child.
Mommie can you carry my basket,
Gracious it's much too heavy for me,
I sure do want some special goodies,
From these apples that fell from the tree.
