Slowly let me tell you a story of a tree 
An apple tree
 
Once in a summertime garden lived a little apple tree 
And the man who owned it wanted it to be picked 
So he sent forth to hire me 

Well, I've traveled the mountains
And I've traveled the sea 
But never in my traveling days 
Have I ever seen a little apple smile at me
 
Laugh, oh laugh a little apple 
Autumn is waitin', you'd better be careful
For it will bring you down 
If it ever sees you wearing a frown 
So laugh, oh laugh a little apple

Well, all the apples were hidin' 
Frightened that they might be plucked 
And everytime that somebody passed 
All except that one little apple ducked 
 
Well, I've traveled the mountains
And I've traveled the sea 
But never in my traveling days 
Have I ever seen a little apple smile at me
 
Laugh, oh laugh a little apple 
Autumn is waitin', you'd better be careful
For it will bring you down
If it ever sees you wearing a frown 
So laugh, laugh a little apple

Laugh, oh laugh a little apple 
Autumn is waitin', you'd better be careful
For it will bring you down
If it ever sees you wearing a frown 
So laugh, laugh a little apple
