There is a popular American folk tune called "The Riddle Song." This tune is possibly best known for it's opening line "I gave my love a cherry without a stone."

But there's another line that states:

"A chicken when it's pippin', it has no bone"

Is this true?

Thanks,

Phil

Hey there!

Found these sites via Google.com (the BEST search engine ever!)

First site's a bit different that what you stated, but close. It has the lyrics to the song and the notes.

No, it isn't true.
