“Steal Apples for Me”


"Steal apples, steal apples, Steal apples for me, And while you steal apples, Steal peaches for me." "Let all of the ladies Go enter the ring...." "And when you're done swinging, Remember my call, Take the next lady And promenade all"


From its metre, this might be one of several dance pieces. But given its brevity and lack of tune, it's hard to tell where to put it. - RBW
