Lyrics:

Apples, peaches, bananas and pears

I love you
Girl now that's the truth
I need you
Don't be cruel, don't be cruel
Give me just a little help
And to show how much I care
I'll bring you apples, peaches, bananas and pears

Run to me
Girl don't wait too long
And you'll see
I won't do you wrong
Promise me no matter what
Forever you'll be there
I'll bring you apples, peaches, bananas and pears

I've said all I can today
Girl that's the way I am
Take it for what it's worth
Throw the rest into the sand

Give me you
Girl that's all I ask
Please be true
All I wants the love to last
I'll give it all back to you
Just to prove I'm fair
I'll bring you apples, peaches, bananas and pears

Wow!
Well all right..
[instrumental]

I love you
Girl now that's the truth
I need you
Don't be cruel, don't be cruel
Give me just a little help
And to show how much I care
I'll bring you apples, peaches, bananas and pears
Apples, peaches, bananas and pears
