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 story
That had no end
I gave my love a baby
Got no cryin'

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 story
That has no end
How can there be a baby
With no cryin'

Well, a cherry when it's blooming
It has no stone
A chicken when it's pippin'
It has no bone
The story of I love you
It has no end
A baby when it's sleeping
Has no crying

Hush little baby
Hush little baby
Hush little baby
Don't you cry
