The Riddle Song
I gave my love a cherry
That has no stone
I gave my love a chicken
That has no bone
I gave my love a story
That has no end
And I gave my love a baby
That's no cryin'

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 cryin'?

A cherry when it's bloomin'
It has no stone
A chicken when it's pickin'
It has no bone
And a story that I love you
It has no end
And a baby when it's sleeping
Is no cryin'
