Ben Colder - Little Green Apples No. 2 Lyrics

An' I come home late at night,
An' try to tiptoe in the room,
An' she says, ((("My, my."))) (Big deal.)
An' I stumble o'er the rockin' chair,
An' my poor head hits the floor, goodnight.
It smarts.
An' as she's standin' over me,
She gives me such a look. (Hmmfph!)
I try to hide my bloodshot eyes,
I know my goose is cooked.


An' I say, "Honeeeey, I can explain this.

I been eatin' little green apples,
An' I think maybe a little nap'll,
Do me good."
She said, "All the noise you're makin' Ben,
Yer gonna wake up everybody in,
This neighborhood."
But I been eatin' the little green apples.
An' to lay my poor head in your lap'll,
Make me fine.
An' now myself is feelin' low,
I look into her eyes aglow,
An' so are mine!



(Hey, honey, you know, I learned a new dance tonight!)
(You wanna know what it's called? Hmmh?)
(Wanna know what it's called?)
((What's it called?))
(It's called the Green Apple Quick-Step.)
(It's a real goer. 1 )
((Ha-ha, haha-ha.))


((Now, Ben, don't come home drinkin'))
((With dancin' on your min'.)) 2
(Dancin' on my min'? Aw, listen here.)
((What do you mean comin' home half drunk?))
(Well, I tell ya the truth,)
(I ran outta money, that's what.)
((Okay, come on, Ben,))
((It's time for you to go to bed.))
(Well, I might as well,)
(I'm gonna be in trouble when I get home anyway, he-he.)
(Aw, now, honey, I's jus' kiddin' ya, now.)
(I was jus' kiddin' ya, you knew that.)
(All I been doin' is,)


I been eatin' little green apples,
An' I think maybe a little nap'll,
Do me good.
So put a cold towel on my head,
An' go an' put big ben 3 to bed,
I wish you would. (I wish somebody would.)
I been eatin' the little green apples,
An' they taste just like Exlax's 4 apples,
(Ooo-ooo-oodoodoo-oogh.)
An' now myself is feelin' low,
An' I think myself has got to go, (See note 1)

(So, bye-bye, everyone.)

(Oh, sorry, honey, I'm jus' standin' on the bed.)
