lyrics

Crocodile tears …

You mope around like you lost me
In your little game, you put me in play
Never asked you to want me
You break hearts - I’m breaking away

That’s enough of those silly love songs
Playing in my head all night
That’s enough of those burning questions
Running through my mind -

Like, baby, why - the crocodile tears
You picked the angles - you played them all
You should be fine … you weren’t happy here
Why are you crying crocodile tears
Oh, don’t cry - no, no - no more
Crocodile tears - mm mm ..

Glad you got what you wanted
By taking the time to make up your mind
Your calculations were off, babe
The next one in line just left you behind

That’s enough of those silly love songs
Playing in my head all night
That’s enough of those burning questions
Running through my mind -

Like, baby, why - the crocodile tears
You picked the angles - you played them all
You should be fine … you weren’t happy here
Why are you crying crocodile tears
Oh, don’t cry - uh uh uh - cry
Don’t you cry - mm no no - mmhmm
Crying - oh no -

No - (Plenty more no’s where these came from)

Like, baby, why - the crocodile tears
You played the angles - you played them all
You should be fine … you weren’t happy here
Why are you crying crocodile tears

Well don’t cry - you played the angles -uh uh
You weren’t happy here - crocodile tears
Ooh yeah - crocodile tears

( Plenty more crocodile tears where those came from …)

We didn't get to test drive "Friday Night" the way we wanted to. Mr./Ms. Universe stepped in. 2020's Covid Cutie. "Sweet Tooth" is currently home to at least six tracks that will appear on our upcoming seventh release entitled "Piece Of Your Ghost". I'm currently close to release of two new singles for our "Or In Cyprus" collection. Just one release to date. Lonely soul ... needs pals. xoRJ ... more
