"Little Green Apples" by O.C. Smith.

OK, back to the 60's: This Louisiana-born minister cut his teeth as frontman for the Count Basie Orchestra in the early 60's. His biggest hit came in '68-'69 with a Bobby Russell ballad that peaked at #2 on Pop and R&B, earned him an RIAA Gold Record and won the '69 Grammys for Song Of The Year and Best Country Song. Covered by, among many others, Roger Miller and Patti Page. Artist? Song?

Yesterday's answer: "Lollipop". Fun memories of Camp Foster when Lauren was in Indian Guides. One of the groups did a hilarious skit to "Lollipop".
