I got a girl named Bony Moronie,
She’s a skinny as a stick of macaroni.

Ought to see her rock ’n’ roll with her blue jeans on,
She’s not very fat just skin and bone.

But I love her, she loves me,
All are happy now we can be making love underneath the apple tree.

I told mama and my papa too just exactly what I’m gonna do,
I wanna get married on a night in June, and rock and roll by the light of a silvery moon.

She’s my one and only she’s my heart’s desire,
She’s a real upsetter - she’s a real live wire.

Everybody turns when my baby walks by,
She’s something to see - she really catches the eye.

That’s why I love her, she loves me,
All are happy now we can be making love underneath the apple tree.
