Have you ever heard of the Sugar-Plum
Ti's a marvel of great renown!
It blooms on the shore of the Lollipop Sea
In the garden of the Shut-Eye Town;
The fruit that it bears is so wondrously sweet
(As those who have tasted it say)
That good little children have only to eat
Of that fruit to be happy next day.
When you've got to the tree, you would
a hard time,
To capture the fruit which i sing;
The tree is so tall that no person could climb
To the boughs where the sugar-plums swing!
But up in that tree sits a chocolate cat,
And a ginger bread dog prowls below-
And this is the way you contrive to get at
Those sugar-plum tempting you so:
You say but the word to that gingerbread
And he barks with such terrible zest
That the chocolate cat is at once all agog,
As her swell proportions attest.
And the chocolate cat goes cavorting around
From this leafy limb unto that,
And the sugar-plums tumble, of course, to
Hurrah! for that chocolate cat!
There are marshmellows, gumdrops and
With stipings of scarlet and gold!
And you carry away of the treasures that rains
As much as your apron can hold!
So come, little child, cuddle closer to me
In your dainty white nightcap and gown,
And I'll rock you away to that sugar-plum tree
In the garden of Shut-Eye Town!
