Entertainment: Song

Song:

I gave my love a cherry that had no stone.
I gave my love a chicken that had no bone.
I gave my love a ring that had no end.
I gave my love a baby with no crying.

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 with no crying?

A cherry when it's bloomin', has no stone.

A chicken when it's pippin', it has no bone.

A ring when it's rollin', it has no end.

A baby when it's sleeping, has no crying.
