Watermelon Smilin' on the Vine (Thomas P. Westendorf)

02.11.1996

see that watermelon smiling through the fence
i wish that watermelon it was mine
sometimes i think that old folks ain't got a lick of sense
when they leave that watermelon on the vine

well apples are sweet and peaches are good
rabbits so very very fine
but give me oh give me, oh how i wish you would
some of that watermelon smiling on the vine

see that watermelon smiling through the fence
i wish that watermelon it was mine
sometimes i think that old folks ain't got a lick of sense
when they leave that watermelon on the vine

well apples are sweet and peaches are good
rabbits so very very fine
but give me oh give me, oh how i wish you would
some of that watermelon smiling on the vine

see that watermelon smiling through the fence
i wish that watermelon she was mine
sometimes i think that old folks ain't got a lick of sense
when i see that watermelon on the vine

apples are sweet and peaches are good
rabbits so very very fine
but give me oh give me, oh how i wish you would
some of that watermelon smiling on the vine

See that watermelon smiling through the fence
I wish that watermelon, it was mine
Sometimes I think them ol’ folks ain’t got a lick of sense
See that there watermelon on the vine

Apples are sweet, and peaches are good
Rabbits so very, very fine
