I Reached Way Up
I reached way up in the apple tree, and picked an apple just for me;
I took a bite, and what did I see? Five little worms a-lookin' at me--yuck!
[Repeat, counting down.]
This is the Way (Corn Song)
This is the way we plant the corn, plant the corn, plant the corn.
This is the way we plant the corn, so early in the morning.
This is the way we
...water the seeds.
...hoe the weeds.
...pick the corn.
...shuck the corn.
...eat the corn!

A great example of what we did. Notice the many-eyed worm!
