The Old Apple

Cat. #0722 (MFH #480) - As sung by M.L. Mercer, Josephine Campbell, Hazel Barnhart, and Grace Acree, on May 21, 1969

O, Eve wasn't modest till she ate that apple
That ole apple was t'blame
Th minute that she ate it, she felt humiliated
She hid behind a tree until th darkness came

Then they wore a fig leaf
Now, clothes are just as brief
If every mothers' daughter wears her dresses any shorter
They'll have to pass th apples once again
