Oehne Lyr Req: The Riddle Song, help to understand (23) The Riddle Song, help to understand .... 21 Oct 99

Hi folks ! I'm a poor german irish folk fan and I hope you can help me abaut this... The Riddle Song (I hope you now this song) contains this line: I gave my love a chicken that has no bone ... ... and later in strophe 3 A chicken when it's pipping (or piping, I'm not really shure), it has no bone ! And this is the riddle for me ! ('cause my englisch is not very good, hope you will forgive me !)

What is the meaning of pipping (or piping) !?!

Thanks for your help,

:) Slainté
