Aretha Franklin – 96 Tears lyrics

Too many teardrops for one heart to be cryin'
Too many teardrops for one heart to carry on
You're way on top now baby
Since you left me, yeah
You're always laughin'
Down at me, yes now
But, ooo watch out baby
I'm gonna get there, yeah
And we'll be together
In just a little while, yes we will
And we'll be gathering tears
From way up here, oh yeah
I wanna see you cry, yeah
Ninety-six tears, yes I do
(Ninety-six tears, it just won't do)
I'll be on top
You'll be there just lookin' up
I can always get up here
And I might not be waving down
Cry baby
Cry baby
Ninety-six uh (ninety-six)
Ninety-six uh
Ninety-six tears
Lord it won't do
(No no no)
Ninety-six, just won't do
Try to get a hundred baby
Ninety-six tears just wont do
Can you get a hundred yeah
Ninety-six tears just won't do
Ooo, ah, ooo, ah, ooo,
Get a million, yeah yeah
Can you get a million
Ninety-six tears, just wont do (till fade)
