AN APPLE FOR THE TEACHER From the film "The Star Maker" (1939) (Johnny Burke / James V. Monaco) Linda Ware (Film Soundtrack) - 1939 Bing Crosby & Connee Boswell - 1939 Charlie Barnet & His Orch. - 1939 Nick Lucas - 1939 Oscar Rabin & His Romany Band - 1939 Gene Autry (featured in the film "The Last Round-Up") - 1947 Also recorded by: The Ovaltineys; Piccadilly Dance Orch.; Errol Garner; Victor Sylvester & His Orch. An apple for the teacher That seems the thing to do Because I want to learn About romance from you An apple for the teacher To show I'm meek and mild If you insist on saying That I'm just a problem child You'll get all my attention Your wish will be my rule And maybe you'll be good to me And keep me after school An apple for the teacher That's how I'd better start Then after while you may give in And let me bring my heart An apple for the teacher Will always do the trick When you don't know Your lesson in arithmetic An apple for the teacher Will meet with great success If you forgot to memorize The Gettysburg Address A little bit of glamour A charm that's cute and quaint And he'll excuse your grammar And believe you're what you ain't You may be just a lemon But he'll think you're a peach Just bring an apple for the teacher When he starts to teach ***** As recorded by Bing Crosby & Connee Boswell: BOSWELL: You're sophisticated CROSBY: I think I'm naive BOSWELL: Well, let's play the game that way CROSBY: Yes, that's what I believe.... CROSBY: An apple for the teacher That seems the thing to do Because I want-a learn About romance from you An apple for the teacher Just to show that I'm meek and mild If you insist on saying That I'm just a problem child You're gonna get all my attention And your wish will be my rule And maybe you'll be good to me Just keep me after school An apple for the teacher That's how I'd better start Then after awhile you may give in And let me bring my heart BOSWELL: An apple for the teacher That seems the thing to do Because I wanta to learn About romance from you An apple for the teacher To show I'm meek and mild If you insist on saying That I'm just a problem child You'll get all my attention Your wish will be my rule And maybe you'll be good to me And keep me after school An apple for the teacher That's how I'd better start Then after while you may give in And let me bring my heart CROSBY: An apple for the teacher S'always gonna do the trick BOSWELL: Not if you didn't study Your arithmatic CROSBY: I got an apple for the teacher Gonna make a great success BOSWELL: Well it won't, if you didn't memorise The Gettysburg Address CROSBY: I got a little bit of glamour And a charm that's cute and quaint BOSWELL: I may excuse your grammar And believe you're what you ain't CROSBY: I got an apple, big red apple for the teacher That's how I'm fixin' to start BOSWELL: Then after awhile I may give in And let you bring your heart BOTH: Then after awhile she may give in And let you bring your heart (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - January 2005)
