  • I wrote my mother
    I wrote my father
    And now I'm writing you too
    I'm sure of mother
    I'm sure of father
    Now I wanna be sure of you

    Don't sit under the apple tree with anyone else but me
    Anyone else but me, anyone else but me
    No! No! No!
    Just remember that I've been true to nobody else but you
    So just be true to me

    Don't go walking down lovers' lane with anyone else but me
    Anyone else but me, anyone else but me
    No! No! No!
    Don't start showing off all your charms in somebody else's arms
    You must be true to me
    I'm so afraid that the plans we made underneath those moonlit skies
    Will fade away and you're bound to stray if the stars get in your eyes
    So, don't sit under the apple tree with anyone else but me
    You're my L-O-V-E.

    Don't sit under the apple tree with anyone else but me
    Anyone else but me, anyone else but me
    No! No! No!
    Just remember that I've been true to nobody else but you
    So just be true to me

    Don't go walking down lovers' lane with anyone else but me
    Anyone else but me, anyone else but me
    No! No! No!
    Don't start showing off all your charms in somebody else's arms
    You must be true to me
    I'm so afraid that the plans we made underneath those moonlit skies
    Will fade away and you're bound to stray if the stars get in your eyes
    So, don't sit under the apple tree with anyone else but me
