Dinah Washington – Cry Me A River lyrics

Now you say, "You're lonely"
Said, "You cried the whole night through"
Well, you can cry me a river
Cry me a river
'Cause I cried the river over you

And now you say, "You're sorry"
For being so untrue
So what, just cry me a river
Cry me river
I cried the river over you

You drove me, nearly drove me out of my head
Why you never shared a tear?
Remember, I remember all you said
Told me love was too plebeian
Told me you were through with me

And now you say, "You love me"
Well, just proof you do
Go on and cry me a river
I'd like to see you cry a river
'Cause I'm tired of cryin' over you
