I've got every reason
On earth to be mad
Cause I just lost
The only girl I had

If I could get my way
I'd get myself locked up today
But I can't, so I'll cry instead

I've got a chip on my shoulder
That's bigger that my feet
I can't talk to people that I meet

If I could see you now
I'd try to make you sad somehow
But I can't, so I'll cry instead

Don't want to cry
When there's people there
I get shy when they start to stare
I'm gonna hide myself away
But I'll come back again someday

And when you do
You'd better hide all the girls
I'm gonna break their hearts
All round the world

Yes, I'm gonna break them in two
And show you what
Your loving man can do
Until then, I'll cry instead

Don't want to cry
When there's people there
I get shy when they start to stare
I'm gonna hide myself away
But I'll come back again someday

And when you do
You'd better hide all the girls
Cause I'm gonna break their hearts
All round the world

Yes, I'm gonna break them in two
And show you what
Your loving man can do
Until then, I'll cry instead

    I think it's pretty straight forward really, there's no real hidden meanings just a bitter guy who has just been dumped. We all know how that feels and the thoughts that go through your head
