In the beginning God made the world
But something wasn't right
He reached down His hand and He made man
Then He smiled, 'cause it was right

But it didn't take long for Him to see
This man was so alone
So He gave him a woman
To love and call his own

Now, the devil had an apple tree
The fruit, it looked so fine
Man took a bite, it tasted sweet
So he stepped out of line

Now today it's still the same
And I know she's tempting you
So with all my love and all my heart
I am begging you

Stay away, stay away from the apple tree
Don't you know that all she wants to do
Is hurt you and me?
Stay away, stay away from the apple tree
And spend all your time loving me
