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.”
