Cry Baby Cry – The Beatles

Cry baby cry, make your mother sigh.
She’s old enough to know better.

The king of Marigold was in the kitchen cooking breakfast for the queen.
The queen was in the parlour playing piano for the children of the king.

Cry baby cry, make your mother sigh.
She’s old enough to know better
So cry baby cry.

The king was in the garden picking flowers for a friend who came to play.
The queen was in the playroom painting pictures for the children’s holiday.

Cry baby cry, make your mother sigh.
She’s old enough to know better
So cry baby cry.

The duchess of Kilcardy always smiling and arriving late for tea.
The duke was having problems with a message at the local Bird and Bee.

Cry baby cry, make your mother sigh.
She’s old enough to know better
So cry baby cry.

At twelve o’clock a meeting ’round the table for a seance in the dark.
With voices out of nowhere put on specially by the children for a lark.
