"Cry Me a River" as written by and Arthur Hamilton....
Now you say you're lonely
You cried 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
Told me love was to plebeian

Told me you were through with me
Now you say you love me
Well, just to prove you do
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
Told me love was to 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
You drove me
Nearly drove me out of my head

While you never shed a tear
Remember?
I remember all that you said
Told me love was to 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
