Gerald Levert – What You Cryin' About lyrics

I need to know what the problem is


Before you turn your back on me
Before you turn the night lite out
Before you turn and fall asleep
Girl tell me what your crying about?

Repeat Chorus

I thought we said we would never
Go to sleep made at each other
No baby, and girl we said
Aint gonna be no secrets keep between
One another no, no, no, no,
Pre Release
For three days or so
Girl your been dogging me strong
And it aint that time of the month
That excuse don't work, don't front
Can you tell me what the deal is
No conversation no kiss
I put this on all of our love
Tonight we're gonna nip this in the butt

Chorus repeat twice

Is it me?
Do I work to hard and not
Pay enough attention to you, Tell me baby?
Or is them?
Somebody tell you I was
Doing something I aint suppose to do
You know how your crew can do
Pre Release


Don't turn the night lite out
Till you talk to me,
Talk to Big Daddy, talk to Big Daddy
Tell me something
I want to know right now
I want to know right now
I want to know right now

Pre Release

Say, your leaving me with no choice
Just strain and raising my voice
Desperate I'm on my knees
Baby, baby, baby, baby please


What your crying about?
Somebody got to tell me
Is it your friends hating on me?
Did I do something?
I'm just trying to make a better
Life for you and me
And the kids and the dog
