Apple Tree by Kat Lee-Ryan
v1) Don’t go shaking that apple tree, when apples green and small,
Don’t go trying to pull them down, before they want to fall,
They might look ready to you and me, but apples take their time,
And when they’re ready baby you, and me will make them mine.
Ch) We can bide our time , we can watch and learn,
Let the sun and rain and moon and stars and seasons do their turn,
Don’t go shaking that apple tree, when apples green and small,
Cos apples that are picked too quick taste bitter after all.
V3 Don’t go shaking that old plum tree before she’s done her thing,
Put some water around her roots and watch those flowers sing (la la la )
Just you have some patience now, and give the plum tree time,
Put a basket on the ground and you won’t need to climb
