Verse:
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.
 
Chorus:
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 walkin' 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.
