The Riddle Song


Joan:
I gave my love a cherry that had no stone
I gave my love a chicken that had no bone
I told my love a story that had no end
I gave my love a baby with no cry'in

Pete:
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 story that has no end?
How can there be a baby that's no cry'in?

Both:
A cherry, when it's blooming, it has no stone
A chicken when it's pippin' it has no bone
The story of my love will never end
A baby when it's sleeping, there's no cryin'
A baby when it's sleeping, there's no cryin'
