I gave my love a cherry without a stone
I gave my love a chicken without a bone
I gave my love a ring without an end
I gave my love a baby with no crying.

How can there be a cherry without a stone ?
How can there be a chicken without a bone?
How can there be ring without an end?
How can there be a baby with no crying?

A cherry when it's blooming it has no stone
A chicken when it's pipping it has not bone
A ring when it's rolling it has no end
baby when it's sleeping it has no crying.
