This song has been mentioned at Mudcat before, in the thread called Songs for Apple Day:
    Bob Kenward of Kent has written a superb song about different varieties of apple. It starts off

    'Good apple, she's my heart's delight,
    I'll pick no peach or pear,
    And pippin she's the queen of all
    And that I do declare'.

    I think you could find him by Googling on Kent Folk. He's a good singer and writer of songs in the traditional style.
That's all it says.

Hello- Kenners here! Notorious at last!


SWEET PIPPIN
(Bob Kenward)

Good apple, she's my heart's delight,
I'll pick no peach or pear,
And pippin she's the queen of all
And that I do declare

Maid Grieve she bruises when you pick
She's tender to the core
Dame Laxton seasons as she will
She'll give none or a store

Aunt Worcester she's the rosy cheeks
As red as blushing maid
But though her flesh is white as snow
She's sharp as any blade

Delicious is her name, it's true
She's golden on the tree
But she's no taste at all, oh no
She'll get no gold from me

Sweet Orange Pippin on the bough
She's tender and she's shy
If she'll consent the season's fair
I'll pick her by and by


There's also a newer Appling song which works through the fruitsman's year-- please PM me if you'd like any more info/tune/ or even the broadsheet/ CD... -over the years I've written many songs about the Garden of England, and it's always good to hear them being sung
Cheers
Bob
also registered under Sweet Orange Pippin in which form it appeared on Tundra's album

What's the proper title of the song you posted, Bob? I'd like to add proper title and songwriter attribution to your post, so it looks like this:

    GOOD APPLE (or whatever)
    (Bob Kenward)


Thanks - it's a good song.

Here's Bob's response:

    Thanks, Joe, the name I gave it was

    Sweet Pippin

    and as I'm a PRS member it was also registered under
    Sweet Orange Pippin in which form it appeared on Tundra's album

    However

    Sweet Pippin

    sounds OK to me!
    Cheers
    Bob
It's a wonderful song. Thanks, Bob.
