From the recording Imagination Station
Traditional, adapted by Rosalie Moscoe. One my favorite traditional lullabies adapted for modern sensibilities. These soothing songs can help calm children before bedtime.
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 you have a cherry that has no stone?
How can you have a chicken that has no bone?
How can you have a ring, that has no end?
How can you have a baby with no crying?
A cherry when it’s blooming, it has no stone,
A chicken when it’s hatching, it has no bone,
A ring when it’s rolling, it has no end,
A baby when it’s sleeping has no crying.
