Eddy Arnold - "I Gave My Love a Cherry" lyrics

I gave my love a cherry without a stone
I gave my love a chicken without a bone

I gave my love a baby with no cryin'.
I gave my love a ring without an end
--- Instrumental ---
How can there be a chicken without a bone

How can there be a cherry without a stone
How can there be a baby with no cryin'.
How can there be a ring without an end
A chicken when it's pipping it has no bone
A cherry when it's blooming it has no stone
A ring when it's rolling it has no end
A baby when it's sleeping has no cryin'...
