"King Cry-Baby" as written by Doc Pomus and David Albert Alvin....
Well, one for all and all for one
And all we want is to have some fun
Oh, squares, beware of our property
Yeah, if you're lookin' to rumble
You're lookin' at me

'Cause I'm the king
(King cry-baby)
'Cause I'm King
(King cry-baby)
Yeah, I'm the king
(King cry-baby)

A king cry-baby with a tear in my eye
And if you mess with the king
You're gonna cry, baby, cry
Baby cry, baby cry, baby cry

Well, I was born on the wrong side of the tracks
In the backseat of a stolen Cadillac
I had my first cigarette before I could walk
And I was strummin' this guitar before I could talk

'Cause I'm the king
(King cry-baby)
Yeah, I'm the king
(King cry-baby)
Oh, I'm the king
(King cry-baby)

A king cry-baby with a tear in my eye
If you mess with the king
You're gonna cry, baby, cry
Baby cry, baby cry, baby cry

Well, I'm a lonely king who needs a queen
Yeah, you're the sweetest hunk of sugar that I've ever seen
Ain't got a ring or crown for you
Well, if I had your love, I'd lose these cry-baby blues

She's the queen, she's the queen, she's the queen
Well, let people talk, I don't care
Let me prove to you Daddy that I ain't no square
You'll be my queen and I'll be your king
Yeah but if you leave my hive, you're gonna feel my sting

'Cause you're my queen
(Queen cry-baby)
You're the king
(King cry-baby)
King and queen
(Cry-cry baby)

A king cry-baby with my queen by my side
And if you mess with us, man
You're gonna cry, baby, cry
Baby cry, baby cry, baby cry
Cry baby cry, baby cry, baby cry
Cry baby cry, baby cry, baby cry

A king cry-baby with my queen by my side
And if you mess with us, man
You're gonna cry, baby, cry
Baby cry, baby cry, baby cry
Cry baby cry, baby cry, baby cry
Cry baby cry, baby cry, baby cry
