Cry me a river?

Now, you said that you love me
After being so untrue

I want you to cry
(Cry me a river)
I want you to cry
(Cry me a river)

Over me
(Cry me a river)
I want you to cry
(Cry me a river)

Over me
(Cry me a river)
Oh yeah
(Cry me a river)
Well, I cried a river over you

Now, you say that you're sorry
Oh, for being so unkind

I want you to cry
(Cry me a river)
Cry for me
(Cry me a river)

Ow
(Cry me a river)
I want you to leave
(Cry me a river)

Want you to cry
(Cry me a river)
Right on me, yeah
(Cry me a river)
Oh, I cried a river over you

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

(Cry me a river)
Come on, love
(Cry me a river)
Want you to cry

(Cry me a river)
Down your head
(Cry me a river)
Ow, cry

(Cry me a river)
Cry me a river
(Cry me a river)
Oh, I cried a river over you

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

(Cry me a river)
Yes
(Cry me a river)
I want you to cry

(Cry me a river)
I want you to leave
(Cry me a river)
Ah

(Cry me a river)
Cry me
(Cry me a river)
Oh, I cried a river over you
Yeah, I cried a river over you

(I cried a river over you)
Over you
(I cried a river over you)
Over you

(I cried a river over you)
Ah
(I cried a river over you)
River, over

I cried a river over you

Cry me a river

Cry me a river
I cried a river over you
