I gave my love a cherry that had no stone
I gave my love a chicken that had no bone
I gave my love a ring that had no end
I gave my love a baby with 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 ring that has no end?
How can there be a baby with no cryin'?

A cherry when it's bloomin', ain't got no stone
A chicken when it's pippin', ain't got no bone
A ring when it's rollin', it has no end
And oh, a baby when it's sleepin', there's no cryin'
A baby when it's sleepin', there's no cryin'
