The Riddle Song
I gave my love a cherry that had no stone
I gave my love a chicken that had no bone
I gave my love a baby with no cryin'
And I told my love a story that has no end

How can there be a cherry that has no stone?
How cab ther be a chicken that has no bone?
How can there be a baby with no cryin'?
How can you tell a story that has no end?

A cherry when it's bloomin, there ain't no stone
A chicken when it's pipping, there ain't no bone
And when a baby's sleeping, there's no crying
And when I say I love you, there ain't no end
