Nuts in May


Lyrics

1. Here we come gathering nuts in May,
Nuts in May, nuts in May,
Here we come gathering nuts in May
On a cold and frosty morning.

2. Who will you gather for nuts in May,
Nuts in May, nuts in May,
Who will you gather for nuts in May
On a cold and frosty morning?

3. We’ll gather [Jeanie] for nuts in May,
Nuts in May, nuts in May,
We’ll gather [Jeanie] for nuts in May
On a cold and frosty morning.

4. Who will you send to take her away,
Take her away, take her away,
Who will you send to take her away
On a cold and frosty morning.

5. We’re sending [Willie] to take her away,
Take her away, take her away,
We’re sending [Willie] to take her away
On a cold and frosty morning.
