"Riddle Song" (karaoke)

"Riddle Song" (sheet music)


I gave my love a cherry that had no stone;
I gave my love a chicken that had no bone;
I told my love a story 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 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 pippin', it has no bone;
The story of "I Love You," it has no end;
A baby when it's sleepin', is no cryin'.
