The king of China's daughter
So beautiful to see
With her face like yellow water
Left her nutmeg tree

Her little rope for skipping
She kissed and gave it me
Made of painted notes of singing-birds
Among the fields of tea

I skipped across the nutmeg grove
I skipped across the sea
But neither sun or moon, my dear
Has yet caught me
