Don't cry baby
If this makes you cry, girl I didn't mean it
Next time I should lie, the truth is inconvenient
I bet if you'd try, you could live without me
I really don't know why, you bother to cry about me

Cry, cry, cry baby, I guess that I'm a bad guy now
Cry, cry, cry baby, just like all the other ones
Cry, cry, cry baby

I hate to see you cry, sad to say I've seen it
We should say goodbye and this time really mean it
Once some time goes by, I'm sure that you'll feel better
But if she needs to cry, then maybe I should let her

Cry, cry, cry baby, I guess that I'm a bad guy now
Cry, cry, cry baby, just like all the other ones
Cry, cry, cry baby

Help me cry away, yeah
What more can I say to you
Cry, cry, cry baby, I guess that I'm a bad guy now
Cry, cry, cry baby, just like all the other ones

Cry, cry baby, feel the wall around your heart
Cry, cry baby, baby, oh, oh, oh, just like all the other ones
Oh, oh, oh, just like all the other ones
Cry, cry, cry baby,
I wanna see you cry baby, cry baby

Don't cry baby.

    It is about a dude who is basically dumping his girlfriend. He is telling her he's leaving her and that she shouldn't cry because he's not worth it, but he's also made her cry when he did something wrong and he's leaving because he's a jerk, really... He's telling her to cry because he's leaving her. Seriously though, it is a selfish and vindictive song but hell it's catchy:/

    I think it is a hit on men. Selfish, uncaring and vindictive. This is how it looks when you view the video. Cee lo, what's the deal?
