little green apples
(bobby russell)

and i wake up in the morning
with my hair down in my eyes and she says hi
and i stumble to the breakfast table
while she is goin off to school goodbye
and she reaches out and takes my hand
squeezes it and says how you feelin hon?
and i look across at smiling lips that warm my heart
and see my morning sun

and if that's not lovin me then all I’ve got to say

god didn't make little green apples
and it don't rain in indianapolis in the summertime
there's no such thing as dr. zeuss disneyland
and mother goose is no nursery rhyme
god didn't make little green apples
and it don't rain in indianapolis in the summertime
and when myself is feelin low
i think about her face aglow and ease my mind

sometimes I call her up at home even though I know that she's busy
and I ask her if she could get away and meet me
and maybe we could grab a bite to eat.
and then she drops what she's doin
and then she hurries down to meet me but i'm always late
but she sits waiting patiently and smiles when she first sees me
because she's made that way

and if that's not lovin me then all i've got to say

god didn't make little green apples
and it don't snow in mineapolis when the winter comes
there's no such thing as make-believe puppy dogs
and autumn leaves or no bb guns
god didn't make little green apples
and it don't rain in indianapolis in the summertime
and when myself is feelin low
i think about her face aglow and ease my mind



"a journalist tried to bad mouth me in a review for ripping
off johnny cash's sunday morning coming down. first of all
i didn't write this song, second of all jc didn't write sunday morning
coming down, kriss kristofferson did, and third of all, this song
came before sunday morning came down.
