Cry Baby Cry
by John T. Marck



Cry Baby Cry

This song by Lennon was inspired by fairytales in this youth, and in part was based on one titled, "Sing A Song Of Sixpence." The images of the King of Marigold and the Duchess of Kirkcaldy were made up by Lennon. He used Kirkcaldy, as it is in Fife, Scotland, where the Beatles once played at the Carlton Theatre on October 5, 1963.

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 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
