.

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
