THE APPLES AND BANANA SONG (traditional)

I like to eat, eat, eat, eat
I like to eat, apples and bananas
I like to eat, eat, eat, eat
I like to eat, apples and bananas

I like to ate, ate, ate, ate
I like to ate, ay-ples and bay-nay-nays
I like to ate, ate, ate, ate
I like to ate, ay-ples and bay-nay-nays

I like to eat, eat, eat, eat
I like to eat, eep-ples and bee-nee-nees
I like to eat, eat, eat, eat
I like to eat, eep-ples and bee-nee-nees

I like to ite, ite, ite, ite
I like to ite, i-pels and bi-ni-nis
I like to ite, ite, ite, ite

I learned a slightly different version from my 1st wife.

The tune has 8 lines but the verse changes every 4.

I like to eat
I like to eat
I like to eat
Apples and bananas
Oh loke toe oat
Oh loke toe oat
Oh loke toe oat
Opals o'nd bononos

And so forth through the various vowels (and diphthongs!).

O..O

Most kids songs have about umpty-eleventeen variations; don't they? Or sometimes eleventy-seven or more....

I'm sometimes surprised at the number of "kid's songs" that I've never heard...though we did a lot of singing when we were kids.

As the season is approaching, I'll share a Hanukkah version I made up a few years ago for my stepson's preschool:

I like to eat, eat, eat, applesauce and latkes....

(Then, ayplesauce and laytkays, eeplesauce and leetkees, and so on...)

For the uninitiated, latkes are potato pancakes traditionally eaten on Hanukkah, or Chanukah, or Hanukka, with applesauce. The oil they are cooked in is supposedly meant to signify the oil that lasted for eight days in the Temple, though I've always assumed that's just an excuse for making them. In Israel, the traditional Chanukah food is doughnuts called Sufganiyot; also made with oil, of course.

Aloha,
Mark
(I did this song for my daughter's school in Boulder two weeks ago and they still loved it!)

Mark - that sounds great. I hope they include your variant if this gets "harvested" for the DT.

i add this when singin' for kids...
teaching them the sign language for the
vowels....and including after the last
line with the vowels, plus the words "I love you"
along with the sign language for these words too.
hard to do the sign language at the same time as
playing the guitar, though...best to have a helper!

Mudcatters Sandy and Caroline Paton have a couple of wonderful children's CD's. One is I've Got a Song! Folksongs for Youngsters. The other one, When the Spirit Says Sing has "Apples and Bananas" and lots of other extraordinary songs that both children and adults will love. You can find them at http://www.folk-legacy.com, 1-800-836-0901

Hmmm. So GUEST thinks the Apples and Bananas song is "wired".

Well, everyone's entitled to his or her opinions.

If GUEST is still around, what do you think about this children's song that I first heard in the mid 1980s at a Pittburgh, PA summer camp for kids ages 5-12 years?

I LIKE BANANAS
I like bananas, coconuts, and grapes.
That's why they call me
Tarzan of the apes!

[repeat again and again with accompanying gestures such as patting your chest when you say "Tarzan of the Apes". Also, those words are sung louder than the other words.]

This song probably has nothing at all to do with the Apples and Bananas song except that it mentions bananas, and except for the fact that some kids and adults who may or may not be 'wired' have fun singing it.

:o)

Schooner Fair, a Maine used to be trio but now sadly just two because Tommy Rowe died of cancer, often do this song in concert. Because they write a great deal of their music I assumed they had written this too - but obviously I am wrong. Fun song. They also wrote a wonderful song about a cat who had no memory so as soon as he was inside he was asking to go out and as soon as he was out was asking to come in (I believe his name was Patrick Finnegan -- who used to like to come in again).

Apples and Bananas could be found on one of the early Singing Kettle albums.....not sure if it's still available though.

It's a song that I use a lot with kids
Having done AEIOU we then do a e i o u (I like to at. at, at ,at etc)

I then get them to have a go at I like to eat Peperoni Pizza!

Our last line is
Now we're thorough, through, through, through,
Now we're through with the apples and bananas
Now we're through, through, through, through
With A, E, I, O, U

And re the mention on Singing Kettle (Cilla Fisher and Artie Tresize)
I learnt the song from them many years ago - and Artie produced our LP/Cassette 'Sunny Songs for Kids' (we really must make a CD!)
Also woth a mention is the fact they were both awarded the MBE several years ago, and in this years list Cilla's brother Archie also gets a MBE! Great stuff

Was that cat owned by Michael Finnegan
With the whiskers on his chin-egan?
Wind came out and blew them in-egan
Poor old Michael Finnegan
Begin agin.

Same tune??

No - very different. I just looked through my Schooner Fare collection -- not comprehensive but I have most of their tapes/CDS but I don't find a version of this song.......

The chorus is something on the lines of .....

First he wants to go out, out, out
Then he wants to come in, in, in
I guess he forgot where he was just a minute before
Then he wants to go out, out, out
Then he wants to come in, in, in
He's always on the wrong side of the door.

It's a nice little song and gets great response from the audience, most of whom are usually long term Schooner Fare songs. Chuck Romanoff solos on it......
