Five Red Apples
(counting rhyme – author unknown)
Five red apples hanging in a tree,
The juiciest apples you ever did see.
The wind came by and gave an angry frown,
And one little apple came tumbling down.
Four red apples…..etc
(jump rope rhyme – author unknown)
I went down to grandpa’s farm,
Billy goat chased me round the barn.
Chased me up the apple tree,
Butted the tree to get at me.
How many apples round and red,
Fell on that old billy goat’s head?
1, 2, 3, etc.
Do You Know the Apple Man?
Sung to tune of “The Muffin Man”
Oh, do you know the Apple Man,
The Apple Man, The Apple Man?
Oh, do you know the Apple Man
He planted apple seeds.
He wore a pot upon his head,
Upon his head, upon his head.
He wore a pot upon his head.
His name was Johnny Appleseed.
John Chapman was his real name,
His real name, his real name.
John Chapman was his real name;
But, we call him Johnny Appleseed.
