I Had A Little Nut Tree

Sing and Learn the Actions!


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!
I skipped over water,
I danced over sea and all the birds in the air,
couldn 't catch me!
