They named their daughter Tasmania
After the land where she was born.
But being named Tasmania
Produced a lot of scorn.

So they changed her name to Van Diemen
As her land was named before
But people called her demon, devil, satan and such.
Some even accused her of secretly being Dutch!

So they changed her name to Apple
After the famous Apple Isle.
She met a man and fell in love
And he walked her down the aisle.

A name is just a name
But just the same
It would be a shame
If the choice of a name
Was the cause of shame.
