A nut tree stood behind the thrashing floor,
Ho there little truck,

Latch, Latch, Seize,
Sing, stick to it, sing.

Nuts hung on this nut tree,
Ho there little truck,

Sing, stick to it, sing.

Who has carried away the nuts?
Ho there little truck,

Latch, Latch, Seize,
Sing, stick to it, sing.

The lad has carried them away,
Ho there little truck,

To whom then has he carried them?
Ho there little truck,
