"I Had a Little Nut Tree" Lyrics: 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. Her dress was made of crimson, Golden 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 all the fruit From my 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. I dances over the water, I skipped across the sea. And all the birds in the air couldn't catch me. Historical Background "I Had a Little Nut Tree" is believed to have first been published in 1797 in "Newest Christmas Box." James Orchard Halliwell claimed the rhyme refers to Juana of Castile, who visited the court of Henry VII in 1506. Having both been widowed, Juana and Henry VII were pressured to marry each other; however, the marriage never happened. Another theory claims the rhyme celebrates Queen Catherine of Aragon, King Henry VIII's first wife and Juana's sister. Juana and Catherine were daughters of Ferdinand and Isabella, the Spanish monarchs who commissioned Christopher Columbus' voyage to the New World.
