Now you say you're lonely
You cried the long night through
Well, you can cry me a river, cry me a river
I've 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've 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

Told me love was to plebeian
Told me you were through with me
And now you say you love me

Well, just to prove you do
Come on and cry me a river, cry me a river
I've cried a river over you

Well, you told me love was to plebeian
Told me you were through with me
And now you say you love me

Well, just to prove that you do
Come on and cry me a river, I wanna see a river
'Cause I've cried a river over you

I've cried a river over you, I've cried a river over you
I've cried a river over you, I've cried a river over you
I've cried a river over you, I've cried a river over you
