To the tune of "Early One Morning"

Early one morning, just as May was beginning
Did Lady Gloriana the Duchess of Sto Lat
Go picking the the hazelnuts,
picking the walnuts
Did she go picking all the forest's nuts.

O gay was her manner, and rising her bosom
Red roses blooming on alabaster cheeks.
When picking the the hazelnuts,
Picking the walnuts
The lady went picking all the forest's nuts.

Returned to her manor, returned to her master
Did Lady Gloriana the Duchess of Sto Lat
Bearing the the hazelnuts,
bearing the walnuts
Having been picking all the forest's nuts.

Later that evening, just as May was beginning
Did Mister Willy Baker, Games Warden of Sto Lat;
Button his trousers
Put on his jacket
He had helped the lady pick all the forest's nuts.
