Listen closely. let me fill you in 
About the rich ripe round red 
Rosy apples the call forbidden fruit 
What I'm about to say is 
Confidential so promise you'll be mute. 
Because if every creature in the garden knows 
They'll come 'round like hungry buffaloes 
And in no time there'll be none of those 
Precious apples left for you and me. 

Now in the average apple 
You're accustomed to skin, seeds, flesh and core 
But you will find that these are 
Special apples that give you something more 
Why, every seed contains some information you 
Need to speed your education, the 
Seeds, indeed, of all creation are here 
Why, be foolish my dear 
Come with me 
To that tree. 

With every sweet and juicy 
Luscious bite of this not forbidden fruit 
You'll see your mind expand and 
Your perceptions grow more and more acute 

And you can teach him plumbing and philosophy 
New techniques for glazing pottery 
Wood-craft, first-aid, home economy 
Madam, Adam will be overjoyed! 

When he becomes aware of 
Your attainments he'll beam with loving pride 
And he will say, 

"o, eve, you're 
Indispensable! please, don't leave my side!" 
And with your nifty,new-found education, he'll 
Relish every conversation,why 
You'll be Adam's inspiration this way! 
Just an apple a day 
Wait and see 
Come with me 
To that tree!
