Carly Simon – I Gave My Love A Cherry (The Riddle Song) lyrics

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 crying.
How can there be a cherry
That has no stone?
And how can there be a chicken
That has no bone?
And how can there be a story
That has no end?
And how can there be a baby
With no crying?

A cherry when it's blooming
It has no stone
A chicken when it's pippin'
It has no bone
The story that I love you
It has no end
A baby when it's sleeping
It's no crying.
