Etta James – Cry Me A River lyrics
Now you say you're lonely
You cried the whole 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
Told me love was too plebeian
Told me you were through with me

And now you say you love me
Well, just to prove you do
Cry me a river, cry me a river
And I cried a river over you

Yeah

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 too plebeian
Told me you were through with me

And now you say you love me
Well, just to prove, just to prove you do
Cry me a river, cry me a river
And I cried a river over you
I cried a river over you
I cried a river over you
