    "The Riddle Song" Lyrics

    Peggy Lee

    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 crying.

    How can there be a cherry
    That has no stone?
    And how can there be a chicken

    That has no bone?
    And how can there be a story
    That has no end?
    And how can there be a baby
    With no crying?

    A cherry when it's blooming
    It has no stone
    A chicken when in the shell
    It has no bone
    The story of how I love you
    It has no end
    A baby when it's sleeping
    It's no crying.
