Apple Season is Comin'


The Lord is good to me
And so I thank the Lord
For giving me the things I need
The sun and rain and an appleseed
Yes, he's been good to me

I owe the Lord so much
For everything I see
I'm certain if it weren't for him
There'd be no apples on this limb
He's been good to me

Oh, here am I 'neath the blue, blue sky a-doin' as I please
Singin' with my feathered friends, hummin' with the bees

I wake up every day as happy as can be
Because I know that with his care
My apple trees, they will still be there
Oh, the Lord is good to me

I watched that film, more than once.
You can tell your girls, that the 1st movie I ever saw in the theatre, was, "Sleeping Beauty", on my birthday!
I won't tell you which one though! LOL! ;-}

Since "Sleeping Beauty" was released in 1959 I'd have to venture a guess that it was your 5th birthday which would now make you about 29. ;)

Liked the Disney songs and movies as a child but I don't remember this one.

Side note, anyone think Disney would allow a song this overtly christian now?

Papa Frank said...

As The Chronicles of Narnia were made with Disney dough my guess is that they would. However, that does not mean that they would not also allow a song about allah or buddha or whomever. They are equal opportunity money grabbers. They bowed to the islamicists when Aladdin came out and changed the words of the opening song when it made it's way onto dvd. I'll try to find the original lyrics and the new lyrics.

Here's the DVD version:

Oh I come from a land, from a faraway place
Where the caravan camels roam
Where it's flat and immense
And the heat is intense
It's barbaric, but hey, it's home

And here's the original from the movie:

Oh I come from a land, from a faraway place
Where the caravan camels roam
Where they cut off your ear if they don't like your face.
It's barbaric, but hey it's home
It's barbaric, but hey, it's home

Hey Jason - I love the new colors on your blog!

save me some apples dude eh? wink*

Papa Frank said...

Yehudi01 -- Glad you like the new look! I decided to mess around with it a little today. My Chiefs are playing the Miami Dolphins tonight. You know -- the absolute WORST team in the league last year. There are two minutes left in the 4th quarter and they are beating us 24 - 0. That's right -- 0. Did I mention they were playing Miami!!! SHEEEEESH!!! This year is going to be amazingly long for us Chiefs fans. And our opening game is playing the New England Patriots on the road. How would you say it? OY!!!

WHT -- anything for you, Angel!!!

APPLES? I'm SO ENVIOUS, Pops! One of my favorite memories was apple picking with my sister and her family in London, Ontario, Canada....crisp blue skies, plaid shirts, hay wagons, EMPIRE APPLES (my favorites, unavailable here), and bratwurst for lunch! later, we stood under a big tree and tried to catch leaves as they fluttered down. I thought that sounded SO corny and I HAD A BLAST!
WHO KNEW?
I LOVE FALL..APples mean FALL. Gave me pleasure just writing this down..
ENJOY! (I'm copying this poem for my Wee Americans class...for Johnny APpleseed day! THANKS!) xxx

Z -- it's a song from the Disney dvd entitled "Legends." The whole dvd would be good for the content and for the age group you're working with. Go back to the first comment on this thread which is from Farmer. He put a link to the video of this song. The other stories on the dvd are The Brave Engineer, John Henry, and Paul Bunyan. On top of that it's narrated by James Earl Jones. A classy and patriotic dvd through and through.

thanks, I listened to that when I Googled the first few words! Great stuff. I will DEFINITELY teach them this song..it IS a Christian school after all!
