A is for the Apple, that’s what this song’s about
B is for the Braeburn or the Bismark it turns out
C is for the Crunch, Catshead and Cheddar Cross
it’s for the Chisel Jersey, and the Cherry Cox
D is for Discovery, the Davey and Delicious
E’s for Esopus Spitzenburg – a mouthful but nutritious
F is for the Fuji and the Feltham Beauty
G, well that’s old Granny Smith – a bright green little cutey
And so my little friends there is no need to fuss and flapple
The question that I want to know is how do you like them apples?
Next we got the Hawkeye, the Hampshire and the Hazen
The Howgate Wonder I have to say is really quite amazing!
I is for the i-pod which is really hard to grapple
but you cant eat electronics that’s the wrong kind of apple!
I like the Ingrid Ma-rie it’s one of Denmark’s finest
The Jackson’s Seedling and the Jersey Mac are just fine it’s
The K that is for Katy, and also Big King Luscious
L is for the Lady Red and the Langton’s Nonsuch
Next we’ve got the Mertons as well as Mister Gladstone
Then of course the Norfolk Beauty is a good one
for coo-king as well, as the firm Ontario,
and the Opal’s picked in the early season don’t cha know
P is for the Pioneer and Pink Lady you’ll have seen
Q is for the Quebec Bell and the Cox’s Queen
R is for the Reverend Wilks – sitting in his chapel
and he’d really like to know “how, do you like these apples?”
For S we have the Snow, as well as Mrs Scarlett
T is for her friend Tom Putt who is a little Starlet
U is for the Upton Pyne – a cooking variety
V is for Vanderpool which is small and red and firey
W is the Walter Pease and his friend Wayne
It’s also for the William Crump – which is a fantastic name
There is no X in apple but so it’s not alone,
let’s make one up and use an X how about Xylophone?
Y is for the ones that are from Yarlington Mill
The Yellow Delicious and the York Imperial
Z is for the Zuccamaglio which is red
and that concludes our harvest in our apple A to Z.
