I Gave My Love a Cherry 

Traditional, recorded on Grapevine

I gave my love a cherry, that had no stone, 
I gave my love a chicken that had no bone; 
I told me 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 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 true love, has no end; 
A baby when it's sleepin', there's no cryin'. 

alternate lines: 

A cherry in the blossom, it has no stone 

The story of "I love you," it has no end 
A ring when it's rollin' it has no end
