Now. look-a-there, the honey
A-ooo-wee
Now, look-a-there, the honey
Mercy me
Now, look-a-there, the honey
A-ooo-wee
Baby, way there over there by the apple tree

Now, look-a-there
She kind-a, big n' fat
Now, look-a-there
A-but it ain't like that
Now, look-a-there, the honey
The ooo-wee
Baby, way over there by the apple tree

I love, yo' lovely little apple
I think yo' apple is awful fine
So crazy about yo' mellow little apples

Because a-ev'ry night an days
A-roll across my mind

Now, look-a-there, the honey
Oh, ooo-wee
Now, look-a-here, a-baby
Mercy, me
Now look-a-there, a-honey

A-ooo-wee
Baby, way over there by the apple tree

(harmonica & instrumental)

Now, look-a-there
She's a solid sender, Jack!
Now, look-a-there
I wonder when she comin' back?
Now, look-a-there, the honey
A-ooo-wee
Baby, way over there by the apple tree

Now, look-a-there
She got long, black. curly, hair
Now, look-a-there
Her brother don't 'llow me there
Now, look-a-there, a-honey
A-ooo-wee
Baby, way over there by the apple tree

I love, love yo' mellow little apple
I think yo' apple's awful fine
I'm so crazy about yo' lovely little apples
Because
A-ev'ry night an day they run across my mind

A-looky there, oh honey
A-hoo-wee
Now, look-a-there
A-honey, mercy me
Now, look-a-there
The honey, a-ooo-wee
A-way over there by the apple tree.
