Said the Father to the little lad,
“Just eat an apple every day,
Doctors will not say your health is bad,
And you’ll climb mountains far away.”

An apple for the teacher’s swell;
It keeps the doc away.
But as I keep my teacher well,
She’s teaching ev’ry day. 

I’d like a sub who can’t say “no”,
Who lets us pupils slide,
Who won’t give homework as a woe,
Won’t miss me if I hide. 

An apple’s a too healthy food;
A different tack I’ll take.
I’ll be a student smart and shrewd –
Bring sweets like cookies, cake.
