If I Cried

 If I cried many teardrops
 From these pale blue eyes
 I’m not sure if it would matter
 She’s already said her goodbyes
 So, I won’t cry many teardrops
 I’ll be manly and swallow my pride
 She wouldn’t be payin' attention
 If I cried

 If I cried about missin’ her
 If I cried about not kissin’ her
 If I cried cause I couldn’t hold her
 Sweet body close to mine
 If I cried and drank til I fell down
 If I cried like a backstage circus clown
 She won’t come back to this town
 So I think I’ll have some more wine

 If I cried like a little baby
 Or if I cried like a crocodile
 Just because I missed her laughter
 And that funny, silly smile
 So I won’t cry like a little baby
 I’ll get drunk and bum a ride
 Find someone else who’ll care
 If I cried

 If I cried about missin’ her
 If I cried about not kissin’ her
 If I cried cause I couldn’t hold her
 Smooth body close to mine
 If I cried and drank til I fell down
 If I cried like a backstage circus clown
 She won’t come back to this town
 So I think I’ll have some more wine

 And bourbon, scotch and a few
 cases of delicious Coors Light 
 Cause I can throw up all night
 There’s no one at home to fight
 Bring on all the booze tonight
 That girl was no Mrs. Right
 I won’t ever get her back now
 Even If I cried

 No, I couldn't get her back now,
 Even if I cried…
