I Had a Little Nut Tree

I had a little nut tree, 

Nothing would it bear 

But a silver nutmeg 

And a golden pear; 

The King of Spain's daughter 

Came to visit me, 

And all for the sake 

Of my little nut tree. 

Her dress was made of crimson,

Jet black was her hair,

She asked me for my nutmeg

And my golden pear.

I said, "So fair a princess

Never did I see,

I'll give you all the fruit

From my little nut tree."

I danced over the water,

I danced over the sea,

And all the birds in the air,

Couldn't catch me.
