I was hungry. Starving, actually. I spied an apple in an apple tree, It looked so very good to me, Though it was high as it could be. So I took a ladder to the tree, And climbed it, oh, so carefully, And when I was close as close could be, I reached out, but it was plain to see, That a worm got there ahead of me!
But I used to hear my Granny say, "An apple a day keeps the doctor away." So I climbed down, and what can I say, I ate the apple anyway!
