       Em            Emaj7                   Em7
The king of Marigold was in the kitchen
                     Em6                       C7  G
Cooking breakfast for the queen.
       Em                        Emaj7
The queen was in the parlour
             Em7               Em6                      C7
Playing piano for the children of the king.

Chorus:
G                 Am
Cry baby cry,

Make your mother sigh
        Em7                          A7
She’s old enough to know better
F                      G
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 childrens holiday.

Chorus.

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.

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
                   F          G        Am
So cry baby cry cry cry cry baby
F                                 G
Make your mother sigh.

        Em7                          A7
She’s old enough to know better so
F
Cry baby cry
G             Am
cry cry cry,   baby
F                G
Make your mother sigh
        Em7                          A7
She’s old enough to know better
     F                 Em
So cry baby cry.


Lyrics:

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 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.

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 childrens holiday.

Chorus.

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.

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 so
Cry baby cry
Cry cry cry,   baby
Make your mother sigh
She’s old enough to know better
So cry baby cry.
