’Cry Baby’ by Janis Joplin lyrics

Cry baby, cry baby, cry baby
Honey, welcome back home

I know she told you, honey I know she told you that she loved you
Much more than I did but all I know is that she left you
And you swear that you just don't know why
But you know, honey I'll always, I'll always be around if you ever want me



Cry baby, cry baby
Oh honey, welcome back home

Don't you know, honey
Honey ain't nobody ever gonna love you the way I try to do?
Who'll take all your pain, and your heartache, too?
And if you need me you know that I'll always be around
If you ever want me



Cry baby, cry baby
Oh Daddy, like you always saying to do

And when you walk around the world, babe
You said you'd try to look for the end of the road
You might find out later that the road'll end in Detroit
Honey, the road'll even end in Kathmandu

You can go all around the world
Trying to find something to do with your life, baby
We only gotta do one thing well
You only gotta do one thing well to make it in this world, babe

You got a woman waiting for you there
All you ever gotta do is be a good man one time to one woman
And that'll be the end of the road, babe
I know you got more tears to share, babe

So come on, come on
Come on, come on, come on
And cry, cry baby, cry baby, cry

And if you ever feel a little lonely, dear
I want you to come on, come on to your mama now
And if you ever want a little love of a woman
Come on and baby, baby, baby, babe, babe, baby now
Cry baby, yeah
