Cry Baby Cry
by 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 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 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.
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 séance in the dark.
With voices out of nowhere
Put on especially 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.
