Popcorn Popping

(Another traditional song that was passed down to me. I’m still not sure how the melody really goes. Close enough.)

I looked out my window and what did I see?
Popcorn popping on the apricot tree
Spring had brought me such a nice surprise
Blossoms popping right before my eyes
Now, I can take an armload and make a treat
A popcorn ball that would smell so sweet
It wasn’t really so, but it seemed to me
Popcorn popping on the apricot tree
