If you think
I laugh louder than anyone here
If you think
That my volume's too high
If you think
I laugh loud
You ain't heard nothin' yet

But if I talk loud
And laugh loud
You ain't heard it all
You ought to hear me cry

I go home, to a home
Where love's almost gone
Not enough to fill one needle's eye
Then I sit down in a corner
And I turn on the tears
And you ought to hear me cry

I go home, to a home
Where love's almost gone
Not enough to fill one needle's eye
Then I sit down in a corner
And I turn on the tears
And you ought to hear me cry
You ought to hear me cry
