The Beatles — Cry Baby Cry lyrics

If you find some error in Cry Baby Cry, please submit your corrections to webmaster.
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...

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

Cry baby cry...

Twelve o'clock a meeting 'round the table for a seance in the dark
With voices out of nowhere put on especially by the children for a lark

Cry baby cry...
