A good apple pie fixes every pain.

Your grandmother baked them to be sure you'd know-

Cinnamon for heartbreak, cloves for shame.

 

April's blossoms grow in April's rain

And sugar melts faster than springtime snow.

A good apple pie fixes every pain.

 

Sorrow's apron is always stained

With teardrops of lemon, butter, and dough.

Add cinnamon for heartbreak, cloves for shame.

 

Princess ripens when you gather grain.

Just roll out the crust, careful and slow.

A good apple pie fixes every pain.

 

If the fruit has a worm, you're not to blame.

Climb your ladder to the highest bough.

Add cinnamon for heartbreak, cloves for shame.

 

When the north wind rides the weather vane

Guard the last fruit from the hungry crow.

A good apple pie fixes every pain,

Cinnamon for heartbreak, cloves for shame.
