Apple Suckling Tree

Old man sailin' in a dinghy boat

Down there

Old man down is baitin' a hook

On there

Gonna pull man down on a suckling hook

Gonna pull man into the suckling brook

Oh yeah!

.

Now, he's underneath that apple suckling tree

Oh yeah!

Under that apple suckling tree

Oh yeah!

That's underneath that tree

There's gonna be just you and me

Underneath that apple suckling tree

Oh yeah!

.

I push him back and I stand in line

Oh yeah!

Then I hush my Sadie and stand in line

Oh yeah!

Then I hush my Sadie and stand in line

I get on board in two-eyed time

Oh yeah!

.

Under that apple suckling tree

Oh yeah!

Under that apple suckling tree

Oh yeah!

Underneath that tree

There's just gonna be you and me

Underneath that apple suckling tree

Oh yeah!

.

Now, who's on the table. who's to tell me?

Oh yeah!

Who's on the table, who's to tell me?

Oh yeah!

Who should I tell, oh, who should I tell?

The forty-nine of you like bats out of hell

Oh underneath that old apple suckling tree

.
