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 was because of my little nut-tree.

And all the birds in the air couldn't catch me.

With twenty thousand men;

And ne'er went up again.

Over the



VER the water, and over the sea,

And over the water to Charley ;
Charley loves good ale and wine,
And Charley loves good brandy,
And Charley loves a pretty girl,
As sweet as sugar-candy.

Over the water, and over the sea,
And over the water to Charley;
I'll have none of your nasty beef,
Nor I'll have none of your barley;
But I'll have some of your very best flour,
To make a white cake for my Charley.

Some they did laugh, some they did cry,
To see the parliament soldiers pass by.

H 16id you hear the bells ring?
