Captain Wedderburn's Courtship


Bring me a cherry without a stone,
Bring me a chicken without a bone,
Bring me a ring without any end,
Bring me a baby with no crying.


Where can I get a cherry without a stone?
Where can I get a chicken without a bone?
Where can I get a ring without any end?
Where can I get a baby with no crying?


A cherry when it's booming has no stone,
A chicken that's pipping has no bone,
A ring has neither beginning nor end,
A baby asleep has no crying.
