CRY ME A RIVER
Ella Fitzgerald


Now you say you're lonely

You cry the long 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?

You told me love was too plebeian

Told me you were through with me and


Now you say you love me

Well, just to prove that you do

Come on and cry me a river

Cry me a river

I cried a river over you

I cried a river over you

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?

You told me love was too plebeian

Told me you were through with me and


Now you say you love me

Well, just to prove that you do

Come on and cry, cry, cry me a river

Cry me a river

I cried, I cried, I cried a river over you

If my pillow talk, imagine what it would have said

Could it be a river of tears I cried instead?

Well you can cry me a river

Go ahead and cry me a river

'Cause I cried, I cried a river over you

How I cried a river over you
