Now you say you're lonely
You cried the whole 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, never she'd a tear
I remember, I remember all that you said
You told me love was too plebeian
Told me you were through with me

And now you say you love me
Well, just to prove that you do
You gotta cry me a river, cry me a river
I cried a river over you

And now you say you love me
Well, just to prove you do
You better cry me a river, cry me a river
I cried a river over you, I cried a river over you
Baby, I cried a river over you
You can cry
