Caterina Valente – The Riddle Song lyrics

I gave my love a cherry without a stone
I gave my love a chicken without a bone
I told my love a story it has no end
I gave my love a baby with no cryin'...

How can there be a cherry without a stone?
How can there be a chicken without a bone?
How can there be a story that has no end?
How can there be a baby with no cryin'?

A cherry when it's bloomin'... it has no stone
A chicken when it's a pippin' it has no bone
The story of 'I love you' it has no end
Oh baby when it's sleeping... there's no cryin'
