Apple Pie ABC – Nursery Rhyme Apple Pie ABC with Lyrics and Music
give me a good large slice!
a little bit, but nice.
cut me a piece of crust.
Take it, says D,
it’s dry as dust!
Says E, I’ll eat it fast,
I will, Says F,
I vow I’ll have my fill!
give it me good and great.
a little bit I hate.
it’s ice I must request.
the juice I love the best.
let’s keep it up above.
the border’s what I love.
it makes your teeth to chatter.
N said, it’s nice,
there’s nought the matter.
O others’ plates with grief surveyed.
P for a large piece begged and prayed.
Q quarrelled for the topmost slice.
R rubbed his hands and said “it’s nice”.
S silent sat,
and simply looked.
and said, it’s nicely cooked!
U understood the fruit was cherry.
V vanished when they all got merry.
W wished there’d been a quince in.
X here explained,
he’d need convincing.
Y said, I’ll eat,
and yield to none.
Z, like a zany,
said he’d done.
While ampersand purloined the dish,
And for another pie did wish.
