Lyrics

I CAME HOME I WAS OUT ALL NIGHT
YOU LOOK LIKE YOU WANNA FIGHT
BABY CAN?T YOU GET IT RIGHT
I AM TRUE I WOULDN?T LIE

I WAS JUST OUT ON THE TOWN
I SWEAR MY FEET STUCK TO THE GROUND
BABY DON?T YOU HEAR A SOUND
I WOULD NEVER FOOL AROUND

BUT I?LL GIVE YOU SOMETHING TO CRY.............. ABOUT

STOP THE FLOODGATES, YOU?RE A MESS
AND GET THAT FINGER OUTTA MY CHEST (there?s no sense beatin? this to death)*
BABY PLEASE GIVE IT A REST
OR I?LL GET A NEW ADDRESS

AND I?LL GIVE YOU SOMETHING TO CRY .............ABOUT
I?LL GIVE YOU SOMETHING TO CRY.........................ABOUT

DO I NEED AN ALIBI ?
EVERYTIME I TAKE A DRIVE
BABY CALL THE F.B.I.
IF YOU?RE GONNA FANTASIZE

OR I?LL GIVE YOU SOMETHING TO CRY..................ABOUT
I?LL GIVE YOU SOMETHING TO CRY..........................ABOUT


*Female lyric

Good, entertaining piece with a really cool riff and a very straight-forward message. Good backing vocals.

Very unique, it sounds like something out of the 60s. Very nice.
Very original sounding. Great vocals.

It's nice. great instrumentals and voice is ok, not exciting, no strong message,

reminds me of the song you're cheating heart. relationships are always difficult. some of us can relate to this song. a reminder we should work harder at trusting each other.

gUITAR RIFF GRABBED ME RIGHT OFF. LIKE THE CONCEPT.

Love the odd time signature. Cool lyrics.

Interesting theme. Like the chord progression and think it fits the lyrics and story it is telling. Really love the harmonies when they come; it makes a pleasant change. I like the taste of them. And the vocalist has a nice sound for this song.
