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

How can there be a cherry that has no stone?
How can there 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', it has no stone
And a chicken when it's pippin', there is no bone
A baby when it's sleepin', there's no crying
And when I say I love you, it has no end

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 told my love a story that had no end
