It's cher-ry pink and ap-ple blos-som white,  When your true lov-er comes your way.
It's cher-ry pink and ap-ple blos-som-white,  The po-ets say.
The sto-ry goes that once a cher-ry tree,  Be-side an ap-ple tree did grow,
And there a boy once met his bride to be,  Long, long a-go.
The boy looked in-to her eyes,  It was a sight to en-thrall,  The breez-es joined in their sighs,  The blos-soms start-ed to fall.
And as they gent-ly ca-ressed,  The lov-ers looked up to find,  The branch-es of the two trees were in-ter-twined,
And that is why the po-ets al-ways write,  If there's a new moon bright a-bove,
It's cher-ry pink and ap-ple blos-som white,  When you're in love.
