NUTS IN MAY

Posted by Harrowarrow on October 05, 2004

Can anybody help with derivation of this expression; used in the childrens song "Here we go gathering nuts in May, nuts in May, nuts in May"
In the northern hemisphere at least, one would expect to gather nuts in May; rather in the autumn or winter!
