I gave my love a 4 cherry that had no 1 stone
I 5 gave my love a 1 chicken that had no 5 bone
I told my love a 1 story that had no 5 end
I 1 gave my love a 4 baby that's no cry- 1 in'
How can there be a cherry that has no stone
How can there be a chicken that had no bone
How can there be a story that has no end
How can there be a baby that's no cryin'
A cherry when it's blooming, it has no stone
A chicken when it's pipin', it has no bone
The story that I love you, it has no end
A baby when it's sleeping, it's no cryin'
