The Riddle Song

Lyrics

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 ring that has no end
I gave my love a baby with no crying.

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 ring that has no end
How can there be a baby with no crying.

A cherry when it's blooming, it has no stone
A chicken when she's pipping, she has no bone
A ring when it's rolling, it has no end
And my baby when she's (he's) sleeping, has no crying.

That's how there is a cherry that has no stone
That's how there is a chicken that has no bone
That's how there is a ring that has no end
That how there is my baby with no crying.
