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'.
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
