I'll Cry Instead

Lennon & McCartney

I've got ev'ry reason on earth to be mad
'Cause I've just lost the only girl I had
If I could get my way
I'd get myself locked up today but I can't
So I cry instead

I've got a chip on my shoulder that's bigger than my feet
I can't talk to people that I meet
If I could see you now
I'd try to make you say it somehow but I can't
So I cry instead
Don't want to cry when there's people there
I get shy when they start to stare
I'm gonna hide myself away ay-hay
But I'll come back again someday

And when I do you'd better hide all the girls
I'm gonna break their hearts all 'round the world
Yes I'm gonna break them in two
And show you what your lovin' man can until then
I'll cry instead.
