Oh come sit down and give me your word
That I'll be a man someday and I'll hurt
These children around me this boy that I am
It's up here for thinkin' and down there for dancin'
Not the other way around

Apples in the summertime
Peaches in the fall
I can't keep the girl I got
I can't keep none at all

Nobody knows how I can swing that sway
How I can creep from the narrow
To the broader way
But I'll do no more talkin'
I'm goin' to town
With my true love's breath upon my neck
And my hands on velvet ground

Apples in the summertime
Peaches in the fall
I can't keep the girl, I got
I can't keep none at all

Apples in the summertime
Peaches in the fall
I can't keep the girl, I got
I can't keep none at all
