I gave my love a cherry which had no stone
I gave my love a chicken which had no bone
I gave my love a story which had no end
I gave my love a baby with no cryin'
How can there be a cherry which has no stone?
How can there be a chicken which has no bone?
How can there be a story which has no end?
How can there be a baby she's no cryin'?
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 she's sleeping, she's no cryin'.
