Natalie Merchant - The King Of China's Daughter Lyrics


The king of China's daughter

So beautiful to see

With a 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
