I Had A Little Nut Tree Lyrics

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
