FRUIT SONGS & RHYMES

FIVE RED APPLES

Five red apples high in a tree,
One looked down and winked at me.
I shook that tree as hard as I could,
One fell down….mmmm it was good!
                        Adapted Traditional
(Continue rhyme until all the apples have fallen from the tree.)
 

BIG GREEN BANANAS

I walked through the jungle
And what did I see?
Big green bananas
Hanging on a tree.

I chopped down a bunch
And set them in the sun.
When they turned yellow,
I ate every one!
                  Jean Warren

 
I’M A JUICY ORANGE
Tune:  “I’m A Little Teapot”

I’m a juicy orange
Round as can be.
A big juicy orange
Hanging on a tree.

If you want some juice
Just pick me,
Poke in a straw
And squeeze, squeeze, squeeze!
                        Jean Warren
 

I’M A LITTLE PURPLE GRAPE
Tune:  “I’m A Little Teapot”

I’m a little purple grape
Out in the sun.
If I stay too long
My grape days will be done.

First, I’ll start to wrinkle,
Then, I’ll turn all brown.
Finally, I’d be
A raisin on the ground!

PICK A PRETTY BERRY
Tune:  “Pick A Bale of Cotton”

Pick a pretty berry and put it in your basket.
Pick a pretty berry and put it in your basket.
Pick a pretty berry and put it in your basket.
Time to make some pies!
                                    Jean Warren

(Change the word “pretty” to any specific kind of berry you prefer, such as blue.)
 
LEMONS AND LIMES
Tune:  “Three Blind Mice”

Lemons and limes,
Lemons and limes.
Squeeze out their juice,
Squeeze out their juice.
Pour it in a great big cup.
Add sugar and water and stir it up.
Drink until you’ve had enough.
Lemons and Limes.
                       Jean Warren

 
WATERMELON

Watermelon, watermelon
Rolling down the street.
Watermelon, watermelon
Stopped at my feet.

I put him in my wagon
And took him home.
I hoped he liked it
And wouldn’t try to roam.

My mother was delighted
My father was too.
He was the guest of honor
At our family barbecue!
