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'.
