An apple a day

Keeps the doctor away.

Apple in the morning

Doctor’s warning.

Roast apple at night

Starves the doctor outright.

Eat an apple going to bed

Knock the doctor on the head.

Three each day, seven days a week

Ruddy apple, ruddy cheek.


This is a rhyme about a boy who does not like the scrumptious pie made out of an apple. But when his mother tells him about the goodness of an apple, he promises to eat an apple in the morning, at night and even at his bedtime. He assures his mother to eat the apple three times in a day and seven days in the week. He quickly grabs an apple and sings along with her mother an apple a day keeps the doctor away!
