I wish I was an apple a hangin' in a tree
Wish you were another one a hangin' there by me
Wish I was a bluebird a flyin' in the sky
Wish you were another one a flyin' by my side

Well, I wish I may and I wish I might
Have my wish come true
For if I had three wishes
I would wish 'em all for you.

--- Instrumental ---

I wish I was a flower a blooming every day
And every morning you would come pick me for your bouquet
Wish I was a whippoorwill with voice so clear and bright
I'd sit outside your window and sing you to sleep at night.

Well, I wish I may and I wish I might
Have my wish come true
For if I had three wishes
I would wish 'em all for you.

--- Instrumental ---

Wish I was a speckled trout a swimmin' in a brook
And if you had a fishin' pole I'd jump upon your hook
Wish I was the evenin' star for everyone to see
I'd shine a little brighter every time you look at me.

Well, I wish I may and I wish I might
Have my wish come true
For if I had three wishes
I would wish 'em all for you...
