Cry, cry baby, cry baby, cry baby,
Welcome back home.

Now he told you, that he loved you much more than I
But he left you, and you don't, you just don't know why
And when you don't know what to do
You come running and, 

Cry, cry baby, cry baby, cry baby,
Welcome back home.

Well I can always lose, 
Don't you know nobody can love you the way that I do
Take the pain and the heartache too
Ah, honey you know that I'll be around 
When you need to, 

Cry, cry baby, cry baby, cry baby,
Welcome back home,
Welcome back home.

I've spent so many nights 
Just waiting for you to come walking through that door
And even though you've made a fool of me so many times before 
I know that all it takes is just the sight of your face
To make me realize that I will always love you, darlin'
And I can see that you got some more tears to shed
I can see it baby, 'cause your eyes, your eyes are getting red

So c'mon, c'mon, c'mon, c'mon, c'mon
Cry, cry baby, cry baby, cry baby,
Cry, cry baby, cry baby, cry baby.
