Cry Me a River

4 July 2024


Cry Me a River

by Arthur Hamilton


Now

you say you’re lonely

 

You cried the whole long night through

 

Well, you can cry me a river,

cry me a river

 

I cried a river over you.

 

Now

you say you’re sorry

for being so untrue


Well, you can cry me a river

cry me a river

 

I cried, cried, cried a river over you.

 

Yes, you drove me,

nearly drove me,

out of my head

 

While you never shed a tear

 

I remember, I remember,

all that you said

 

You told me love was too

plebeian

 

Told me you were through

with me and

 

Now you say

you say you love me

 

Well, just to prove you do

 

Come on and cry me a river,

cry me a river

cause I cried a river over you.


Now you say,

how much you love me

 

Well, honey,

just to prove you do

 

Go on and cry me a river,

just try to cry a little

 

cause I cried a river over you.

 

If my pillow talked

just imagine

what it would say


It would say

yes, it would say

my tears fell like rain

while you felt no pain

 

And now

it’s your turn to cry

that river over me,

foolish me.


Go on and cry that river

cry that river

 

Cry a deep river

over me.
