I love her, she loves me, oh, how happy, now, we can be

Makin' love underneath the apple tree

My Bony Moronie, she's my heart's desire
She's a real upsetter, she's a real livewire

We're gonna get married on a night in June
          |A5   A6     A5    A6    |A5   A6 A5  A6 |[A riff]
And rock'n'roll by the light of the silvery moon

I love her, she loves me
Oh, how happy, now, we can be makin' love underneath the apple tree

[interlude]

Told her mama and her papa, too
Just exactly what we're gonna do
Well, we're gonna get married on a night in June
To rock'n'roll by the light of the silvery moon

I love her, she loves me
Oh, how happy, now, we can be makin' love underneath the apple tree 

[interlude 2]
