Lyrics

The Queen of Hearts,
She made some tarts
All on a summer's day.

The Knave of Hearts,
He stole the tarts
And took them clean away.

The King of Hearts,
Called for the tarts
And beat the Knave full sore.

The Knave of Hearts,
Brought back the tarts
And vowed he'd steal no more.

The Queen of Hearts,
She made some tarts,
All on a summer's day.

He stole the tarts,
And took them clean away.

And scolded the knave full bore.

And vowed he'd steal no more.
