50 cent:
Yea, you're supposed to have a remix
That's how you make one hit record into two
I remember when you used to love me
You used to kiss and hug me
I'd look into your eyes and get lost for a day
You love me is what you told me
All that time I let you hold me
How I ain't feel you slipping away

You were my sun, you were my earth.
But you didn't know all the ways I loved you.[nooo]
So you took a chance, made other plans
But I betcha didn't think that they would come crashing down. [nooo]

You don't have to say, what you did
I already know, I found out from him
Now there's just no chance, for you and me
We'll never be, don't it make you sad about it

You told me you loved me why did you leave me all alone
Now you tell me you need me when you call me on the phone
But girl I refuse you must got me confused with some other guy
The bridges were burned now it's your turn to cry

Cry me a river, cry me a river
Cry me a river, cry me a river
Yeah, yeah

You know that they that some things are better left unsaid
But it wasn't like you only talked to him
And you know it, don't act like you don't know it
All of these things people told me keep messing with my head
You should of picked honesty then you may not have blown it [yeah]

[Repeat Hook]
[Repeat Chourus]

So cry me a river [go on and just]
Cry me a river [go on and just]
Cry me a river [baby go on and just]
Cry me a river, yeah, yeah

50 cent:
If you know what I know you know, you ain't got to say a word
What's done in the dark, comes to light
I'm fin' I kick you to the curb
You smile all up in my face, girl you got a lot of nerve
Situation so upsurd you ain't special, you's a bird
Get your sh** and hit the door, you ain't welcome here no more
Ain't no sense, seen you crying, girl you know i know you lying
You must take me for a fool think i'm gonna stay with you
First give me back my jewels, bi*** I ain't playin' with you

[Repeat Hook]

Cry me a river [go on and just]
Cry me a river [baby go on and just]
Cry me a river [You can go on and just]
Cry me a river, yeah, yeah
Cry me a river [baby go on and just]
Cry me a river [go on and just]
Cry me a river [come on baby cry]
Cry me a river [don't wanna cry no more, yeah, yeah]

50 cent [singing over ending of 'cry me a river']:
Yeah go ahead, yeah, let her go ahead and cry man
Go on and cry, Britney [laughs]
Go on and cry, mess up your mascara and all that girl
All your expensive makeup [laughs again]
50 cent, Justin Timberlake remix, you heard me
Cry me a river [laughs again]
