The Riddle Song
I gave my love a cherry that has no stone;
I gave my love a chicken that has no bone;
I gave my love a ring that has no end;
I gave my love a baby, there’s no cry-en.
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, there’s no cry-en?
A cherry when it’s blooming, it has no stone;
A chicken when it’s pipping, it has no bone;
A ring when it’s rolling, it has no end;
A baby when it’s sleeping, there’s no cry-en.
American folk song, Ky.
Harmonized by Edna Ritchie
