Lyrics[]

[Chorus]

Cry baby cry

Make your mother sigh

She's old enough to know better

So cry baby cry


[Verse 1]

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


[Chorus]

Cry baby cry

Make your mother sigh

She's old enough to know better

So cry baby cry


[Verse 2]

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


[Chorus]

Cry baby cry

Make your mother sigh

She's old enough to know better

So cry baby cry


[Verse 3]

The duchess of Kircaldy always smiling

And arriving late for tea

The duke was having problems

With a message at the local Bird and Bee


[Chorus]

Cry baby cry

Make your mother sigh

She's old enough to know better

So cry baby cry


[Verse 4]

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


[Chorus]

Cry baby cry

Make your mother sigh

She's old enough to know better

So cry baby cry


[Chorus: False Ending]

Cry baby cry

Make your mother sigh

She's old enough to know better

So cry baby

Cry baby cry

Make your mother sigh

She's old enough to know better

So cry baby

Cry baby cry

Make your mother sigh

She's old enough to know better

So cry baby

Cry baby cry

Make your mother sigh
