Lyrics COMES A RAIN STORM
PUT YOUR RUBBERS ON YOUR FEET,
COMES A SNOW STORM
YOU CAN GET A LITTLE HEAT;
COMES LOVE
NOTHING CAN BE DONE.
COMES A FIRE
THEN YOU KNOW JUST WHAT TO DO,
BLOW A TIRE
YOU CAN BUY ANOTHER SHOE;
COMES LOVE
NOTHING CAN BE DONE.

DON’T TRY HIDIN’
'CAUSE THERE ISN’T ANY USE,
YOU’LL START SLIDIN’
WHEN YOUR HEART
TURNS ON THE JUICE.

COMES A HEADACHE
YOU CAN LOSE IT IN A DAY,
COMES A TOOTHACHE
SEE THE DENTIST RIGHT AWAY;
COMES LOVE
NOTHING CAN BE DONE!

COMES A HEAT WAVE
YOU CAN HURRY TO THE SHORE,
COMES A SUMMONS
YOU CAN HIDE BEHIND THE DOOR;
COMES LOVE
NOTHING CAN BE DONE.
COMES THE MEASLES
YOU CAN QUARANTINE THE ROOM,
COMES A MOUSE
YOU CAN CHASE IT WITH A BROOM;
COMES LOVE
NOTHING CAN BE DONE.

THAT’S ALL BROTHER,
IF YOU’VE EVER BEEN IN LOVE,
THAT’S ALL BROTHER,
YOU KNOW WHAT I’M SPEAKING OF!

COMES A NIGHTMARE
YOU CAN ALWAYS STAY AWAKE,
COMES DEPRESSION
YOU MAY GET ANOTHER BREAK;
COMES LOVE
NOTHING CAN BE DONE!
Alt. Title Don't Sit Under The Apple Tree (With Anyone Else But Me)

Writers Lew Brown, Sam H. Stept, Charles Tobias

Genres Standard, Big Band Era

Recorded 1942

Lyrics [Male Vocal]:
DON'T SIT UNDER THE APPLE TREE
WITH ANYONE ELSE BUT ME,
ANYONE ELSE BUT ME,
ANYONE ELSE BUT ME,
NO! NO! NO!
DON'T SIT UNDER THE APPLE TREE
WITH ANYONE ELSE BUT ME
TILL I COME MARCHIN' HOME.
DON'T GO WALKIN' DOWN LOVER'S LANE
WITH ANYONE ELSE BUT ME,
ANYONE ELSE BUT ME,
ANYONE ELSE BUT ME,
NO! NO! NO!
DON'T GO WALKIN' DOWN LOVER'S LANE
WITH ANYONE ELSE BUT ME
TILL I COME MARCHIN' HOME

I JUST GOT WORD FROM A GUY
WHO HEARD FROM THE GUY
NEXT DOOR TO ME.
THE GIRL HE MET
JUST LOVES TO PET
AND IT FITS YOU TO A TEE.

SO, DON'T SIT UNDER THE APPLE TREE
WITH ANYONE ELSE BUT ME
TILL I COME MARCHIN' HOME.

Female Vocal]:
DON'T GIVE OUT WITH THOSE LIPS OF YOURS
TO ANYONE ELSE BUT ME,
ANYONE ELSE BUT ME,
ANYONE ELSE BUT ME,
NO! NO! NO!
WATCH THE GIRLS ON THE FOREIGN SHORES,
YOU'LL HAVE TO REPORT TO ME
WHEN YOU COME MARCHIN' HOME.
DON'T HOLD ANYONE ON YOUR KNEE,
YOU BETTER BE TRUE TO ME,
YOU BETTER BE TRUE TO ME,
YOU BETTER BE TRUE TO ME.
DON'T HOLD ANYONE ON YOUR KNEE,
YOU'RE GETTIN' THE THIRD DEGREE
WHEN YOU COME MARCHIN' HOME.

YOU'RE ON YOUR OWN
WHERE THERE IS NO PHONE
AND I CAN'T KEEP TABS ON YOU.
BE FAIR TO ME, .
I'LL GUARANTEE
THIS IS ONE THING THAT I'LL DO:

I WON'T SIT UNDER THE APPLE TREE
WITH ANYONE ELSE BUT YOU
TILL YOU COME MARCHIN' HOME.

[All]:
DON'T SIT UNDER THE APPLE TREE
WITH ANYONE ELSE BUT ME,
I KNOW THE APPLE TREE
IS RESERVED FOR YOU AND ME,
AND I'LL BE TRUE
TILL YOU COME MARCHIN' HOME.
