"I Had a Little Nut Tree"


       
 
1.
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.
 
       
 
2.

Her dress was all of crimson, coal black was her hair,
She asked me for my nut tree and my golden pear.
I said, "So fair a princess never did I see,
I'll give you the fruit of my little nut tree."
