Apples & Bananas – A Super Silly Song!

Apples & Bananas

Sometimes you just need to get silly. This group of monster friends is doing just that. Join in the fun with the classic kids’ song, “Apples & Bananas.”

This deceptively simple song practices something very important, the sounds the vowels make. Follow along as each verse switches out the vowel sounds, making some funny new words in the process. Here are the lyrics to help you keep up:

Lyrics:
I like to eat, eat, eat apples and bananas.
I like to eat, eat, eat apples and bananas.
I like to eat, eat, eat apples and bananas.
I like to eat, eat, eat apples and bananas.

Now let’s make a long “a” sound…ay-ples and ba-nay-nays
I like to ate, ate, ate ay-ples and ba-nay-nays
I like to ate, ate, ate ay-ples and ba-nay-nays

Let’s try a long “e” sound…ee-ples and ba-nee-nees
I like to eat, eat, eat ee-ples and ba-nee-nees
I like to eat, eat, eat ee-ples and ba-nee-nees

How about a long “i” sound…i-ples and ba-nigh-nighs
I like to ite, ite, ite i-ples and ba-nigh-nighs
I like to ite, ite, ite i-ples and ba-nigh-nighs

Great, let’s sing it with a long “o” sound…oh-ples and ba-no-nos
I like to ote, ote, ote oh-ples and ba-no-nos
I like to ote, ote, ote oh-ples and ba-no-nos

I know let’s make an “oo” sound…oo-ples and ba-noo-noos
I like to oot, oot, oot, oopples and ba-noo-noos
I like to oot, oot, oot, oopples and ba-noo-noos

Apples and bananas, one more time!
I like to eat, eat, eat apples and bananas.
I like to eat, eat, eat apples and bananas.
I like to eat, eat, eat apples and bananas.
I like to eat, eat, eat apples and bananas.
