BUY THIS CD AT AMAZON.COM



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 parlor 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 Kircaldy 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


Cry baby cry
make your mother sigh


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

Information

In an interview, John said: "I think I've got them from an advert - 'Cry baby cry, make your mother buy'". He based much of the song on Nursery Rhyme and fairytales while creating his own characters.
