Hi, I'm just wondering if anyone knows any songs about apples. We're celebrating Apple Day here tomorrow and I thought it would be nice to sing something, but I can't think of anything.... any ideas? Cheers F

If you go to the search box on this page and type in Apple, click search, you will find a long list of song lyrics that are in the database.

According to Common Ground, who invented it, Apple Day is 21 October.
But if you look at their website you find that people are celebrating it
pretty much whenever they like during October.

Also, I made up a little dog ditty, which you can have:

Kalla, Kalla, apple eater,
You would think they never feed her.
Every apple on the ground,
She picks up and gulps right down.

It's to the tune of the B-part of "Mississippi Sawyer."

johnny appleseed's prayer/grace
"The Lord is good to me,
and so i thank the Lord,
for giving me the things i need
the sun, the rain and the apple seed
the Lord is good to me."

Rosalie Sorrells
If you love me, if you love, love love me
plant a rose for me
If you think you'll love me for a long long time
plant an apple tree
then whether you comes or whether you goes
you'll have an apple and you'll have a rose...

(something like that)

Open mike, the song may be sung by Rosalie but it was written by Malvina Reynolds, and I'm sure it's in the data base.
There's:
Drink up Thy Cider (by the mangle-wurtzles)

There once was a maiden from Ryde
Who ate too many apples and died
The apples fermented
inside the lamented
Made cider inside her insides.
(a round)

there's a couple Apple Wassails
and verses in more wassails and a verse in God Bless the Merry Little Hop.I'm pretty sure you can find all of them here in the database.
Blessings,
BArbara

I learned that from my grandmother a bit differently:

There was a young lady from Ide,
From eating green apples she died,
Within the lamented,
The apples fermented,
and made cider inside her insides.

You're right, Alice, it was a lady; but I'm pretty sure the second line is the way I learned it.
And "If You Love Me" is the name of the Malvina song Rosalie recorded.

The Somerset 'Apple Tree Wassail' has the refrain: So well she may bloom and so well she may bear, That we shall have apples and cider next year.

Can't remember which wassail has:

Bud and blossom, bud and blossom,
Bud and bloom and bear
So we shall have cider, and plenty for next year
Apples all in bushels, baskets, bags and all,
And the cider runnin' out of every gutter hole.

Is that Somerset?

The New Christie Minstrels did one about Johnny Appleseed, it's on their "Land of Giants" recording.

I wrote a round once, need to figure out how to write out tunes someday, but the words are:

Cortlands and Spies in the fall of the year
Baked into pies, or for eating.
Sweet as summer's last sun
Crisp as winter to come
Cortlands and Spies.

Linden Lea (William Barnes)

Cider for Me (Sylvia Watts)

Bob Kenward (Synbyn) has also written an excellent song about the different varieties of apple, which as a Kentish man or Man of Kent he is well qualified to do.

The 'golden apples of the sun' are mentioned at the end of The Song of the Wandering Angus (W.B.Yeats).

This may well have been a Charles Aznavour song, but it was done in the 1960's, I believe, by Sinatra.

1. It isn't by chance I happen to be,
A boulevardier, the toast of Paris.
For over the noise, the talk and the smoke,
I'm good for a laugh, a drink or a jokeI walk in a room, a party or ball,
"Come sit over here" somebody will call.
"A drink for M'sieur, a drink for us all!
But how many times I stop and recall.

CH: Ah, the apple trees,
Blossoms in the breeze,
That we walked among,
Lying in the hay,
Games we used to play,
While the rounds were sung,
Only yesterday, when the world was young.

2. Wherever I go they mention my name,
And that in itself, is some sort of fame,
"Come by for a drink, we're having a game,"
Wherever I go I'm glad that I came.
The talk is quite gay, the company fine,
There's laughter and lights, and glamour and wine,
And beautiful girls and some of them mine,
But often my eyes see a diff'rent shine.

CH:

3. While sitting around, we often recall,
The laugh of the year, the night of them all.
The blonde who was so attractive that year,
Some opening night that made us all cheer.
Remember that time we all got so tight,
And Jacques and Antoine got into a fight.
The gendarmes who came, passed out like a light,
I laugh with the rest, it's all very bright.

CH:

I wrote a song about Valentine Apple Day. Can't remember the date unless it was Feb 14. But the idea was to give an apple, so it may have been Feb. I am not at my computer so I can't get at my archive.
The song was not that memorable, one of those curiosity items, a one-off for an occasion. I don't think it was for the apple harvest so not an autumnal custom.
