Lyrics

(Traditional chant)

Here is the tree with leaves so green.
Here are the apples that hang between.
When the wind blows the apples fall.
Here is a basket to gather them all.

Motions

Line 1 – Make a tree with arms
Line 2 – Make fists
Line 3 – Wave arms, then let fists fall suddenly
Line 4 – Link hands to make a basket
