The Lyrics Are Below

 

Cry If You Want

 

Once it was just innocence

Brash ideas and insolence

But you will never get away

With the things you say today

 

But you can try if you want

 

Dont' you get embarrassed when you read the precious things you said

Many many years ago when life appeared rosy red

No one ever shared your bed

Nothing ever filled your head

Except yourself and little Ted

And scary dreams that you were dead.

Don't you want to hide your face

When going through your teenage books

And read the kind of crap you wrote

About "Ban the Bomb" and city crooks

Think about how long it took

To get over that sudden "Yuk"

When in the mirror you would look

Well now my son you're well in stook

 

Cry if you want Cry if you want

 

Didn't you writh in anger when you saw the man in his big car

Didn't you drive a banger and a gallon didn't get you far

Should have been a famous star

But that ain't what you really are

You could shout your last harrah

While they are propping up the bar

Maybe things were better then

Before you led a promised life

Rash commitements and heavy raps and left wing spiel all compromised

You fall in love with other's wives

Drive 'em nuts with empty lies

Angry 'cos you lost the prize

Forgot the color of their eyes.

 

Cry if you want Cry if you wnat

 

Let your tears flow Let your past go

 

Don't you get embarrassed when you think about the way you were

Yesterday the day before when you were young with much to learn

Aren't you glad it's your last term

No more acting lowly worm

You can make the suckers squirm

When you tell them how much you earn

Don't you feel ashamed at all the bitterness you keep inside

Does your ego save your face "I had a go - I really tried"

Now you know your leaders lied

Does it stop you acting snide

Or are you still a boy that cried

Tears now surely long since dried.

 

Cry if you want Cry if you want
