Yeah baby this is mike talkin and you know
While everybody else was fruntin’ like they was on my side,
Like they was in my corner I’m glad that I had at least
One person that was serious I just wanna thank you baby for
Lookin out

You don’t have to, don’t cry no more
You don’t have to cry baby no more, don’t cry no more
Said ill be right by your side and that is for sure

There’s someone here now who cares about your needs
We’ll make it somehow ’cause I’ll share your dreams I’m just here to
Give you some good love in bad times, I’m yours when you need me
Keep me close ill keep you warm oo that’s how


Oo yeah I’m glad that you stood by waitin’ on my call
You caught every every every teardrop before one could fall
You never deceived me the way I first did
You got what I need girl and so much to give

Don’t cry no more, you don’t have to (im not)
You don’t have to cry no more (i know I won’t have to cry I’m not
Worried about tomorrow) don’t cry no more, you don’t have to
Said ill be right by (cuz I know its gonna be over)
Your side and that is for sure (soon as my baby soon
As my baby soon as you get here to me oo yea baby)

Baby I will be there for you because I know
That things can get heavy on your mind oo yea babe
Baby I’m glad that you’re here for me so I hope and
Pray that you’ll always stay and be apart of my life yea
[together] ill give you hug and kisses and smooches and
Lovin’ whatever you want whatever you need ill be right there
Just wait and see ’cause my love is unconditional ooooo
Now that I know I don’t have to cry (you don’t have to cry)
Don’t have to worry bout a dryin my eyes baby

Dry your eyes) ’cause you told me, please don’t cry
I believe you I can rest asure (you can be strong
You don’t have to), you don’t have to worry bout a damn thing no no
You don’t have to cry (dry your eyes, please don’t cry,
You can be strong, you just don’t know) I won’t ever cry no no no no
(dry your eyes you can) oo no no no (you can be strong
You just don’t have to) so you can take those kleenex (ill take um)
And throw them away (dry your eyes you can be strong)
All I gotta do is treat you right and it’ll be you an’
Me forever (you just don’t have to cry)
