Lyrics Of Sunshine and Shadow

First published by The Century Company

Copyright 1901

The Unlucky Apple

'Twas the apple that in Eden
Caused our father's primal fall;
And the Trojan War, remember--
'Twas an apple caused it all.
So for weeks I've hesitated,
You can guess the reason why,
For I want to tell my darling
She's the apple of my eye.
