Now you say you’re lonely
You cry the 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 a river over you
You drove me, nearly drove me, out of my head
While you never shed a tear
Remember, I remember, all that you said?
Told me love was too plebeian
Told me you were through with me and
Now you say you love me
Well, just to prove you do

Come on and cry me a river
Cry me a river
I cried a river over you
Now you say you love me
Well, just to prove you do
Come on and cry me a river
Cry me a river

I cried a river over you
I cried a river over you
I cried a river, over you
