Joseph was an old man
An old man was he
He married Virgin Mary
Queen of Galilee

Joseph found Mary
Walking through the orchard green
There were cherries and berries
As think as he'd ever seen

Mary said to Joseph
So meek and so mild,
"Joseph, gather me some cherries
For I am with child."

Joseph flew in anger
In anger flew he,
"Let the father of your baby
Gather cherries for thee."

Then up spoke baby Jesus
From deep in Mary's womb,
"Bend down Your tallest branches
So my mother might have some."

Bent down the tallest branches
And they touched Mary's hand
She cried, "Look, my Joseph,
We got cherries by command."

"Look, my sweet, sweet Joseph,
We got cherries by command."
