LYRICS

I’ll give my love an apple without e’er a core,
I’ll give my love a dwelling without e’er a door,
I’ll give my love a palace wherein she might be,
That she might unlock it without e’er a key.

How can there be an apple without e’er a core?
How can there be a dwelling without e’er a door?
How can there be a palace wherein she might be
That she might unlock it without e’er a key?

My head is an apple without e’er a core.
My mind is a dwelling without e’er a door.
My heart is a palace wherein she might be
That she might unlock it without e’er a key.

I’ll give my love a cherry without e’er a stone,
I’ll give my love a chicken without e’er a bone,
I’ll give my love a story that has no end
I’ll give my love a baby and no crying. 

How can there be a cherry without e’er a stone?
How can there be a chicken without e’er a bone?
How can there be a story that has no end?
How can there be a baby and no crying?

When the cherry’s in blossom it has no stone,
When the chicken’s in the egg it has no bone,
When the story is a telling it has no end,
When the baby is a getting there’s no crying.
