A Come an' pick yerself an apple,

B Come an' pick a heapin' load;

C Come an' pick a bloomin' bushel

B An' a couple fer the road.


D There's a dozen different sizes,

E Pink an' yella, red 'r lime,

D Shades that match the pale sunrises

E Of the apple pickin' time.


F Go an' make an apple pie,

F Make it thirty miles high,

G Then you'll be in apple heaven

F Till the day you up an' die.


        (Repeat of verse one)

A Come an' pick yerself an apple,

B Come an' pick a heapin' load;

C Come an' pick a bloomin' bushel

B An' a couple fer the road;


H Some for Gran and Uncle Pete,

I An' a few fer fighting crime;

H 'Cause the fella down the street

I Knows it's apple pickin' time.
