Now you say you're lonely
You cried the long 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 shed a tear

Remember?
I remember all that you said
Said that love was too plebeian
Said that you were through with me and

Now you say you say love me
And just to prove you do
Come on and cry me a river
Cry me a river

You drove me
Nearly drove me out of my head
While you never shed a tear

Remember?
I remember all that you said
Said that love was too plebeian
Told that you were through with me and

Now you say you say love me
And just to prove you do
Come on and cry me a river
Cry me a river
I cried a river over you
Cry
