Lyrics

Cruel, Cruel World
(c) Vicki Lee
(Intro)
I. I'm a long way from Memphis. My dog won't hunt.
Down here in these parts, I lost my heart.
Got stuck in th' mud and he's a dud.
Daddy, send me cash. I got a rash.
I'm your baby girl. I'm out here, in this...
cruel, cruel world. Oh! It's a cruel, cruel world.
II. I can still hear my mama, "Baby, don't go."
But, I was hell bent and so intent.
Ran off with no sense. My life's intense.
Mama, I'm 'a' call. Yo' little baby fall.
Can I please come home? I found out, it's a...
cruel, cruel world. Oh! It's a cruel, cruel world.
(Chorus)
You didn't throw me to th' wolves. You tried to shelter me.
You tried to teach me lessons. I couldn't see.
Danger all over th' place. Th' human race.
Found out, it's a cruel, cruel world. Oh! It's a cruel, cruel world.
Don't say, I told you so. Cruel, cruel world. It's a cruel, cruel world. Told ya so.
III. Won't sugar coat th' truth. It ain't no use.
My life's a mess. I got a confess.
I'm beggin' you, please. Gimmie th' keys.
To th' basement door. Won't mess up no more. Don't lecture me. I'm runnin', from a cruel, cruel world. Oh! It's a cruel, cruel world.
(Chorus)
You didn't throw me to th' wolves. You tried to shelter me.
You tried to teach me lessons. I couldn't see.
Danger all over th' place. Th' human race.
Found out, it's a cruel, cruel world. Oh! It's a cruel, cruel world.
Don't say, I told ya so. Cruel, cruel world. It's a cruel, cruel world.
(Tag) It's a cruel, cruel world. I'm out a here!
