In the shade of the old apple tree,
Where the love in your eyes I could see,
When the voice that I heard,  Like the song of the bird,
Seem'd to whisper sweet music to me.
I could hear the dull buzz of the bee,
In the blossoms as you said to me,
With a heart that is true,  I'll be waiting for you,
In the shade of the old apple tree.
