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.
The kids love the idea of the King’s daughter visiting them.. I’m singing this with my daughter’s class this term, and you can see their little minds working away at silver nutmegs and golden pears. It is an old little song as well, first published in late 1700s, so I’m happy to be passing it on..
