When I Cry


Tell me why, tell me why. Why does a little girl cry?

Tell me why, tell me why. Why does a little girl cry?

Oh she crys for a little light in her life.

She crys for a heartbeat in the night.

She crys for her mommaís arms to hold her tight.

And she crys, ĎCause a little girl crys.


Tell me why, tell me why. Why does a young girl cry?

Tell me why, tell me why. Why does a young girl cry?

Oh she crys for the little girl she left behind.

She crys for the future that she ainít found.

She crys for somebody to hold her tight.

And she crys, ĎCause a young girl crys.


Tell me why, tell me why. Why does a big girl cry?

Tell me why, tell me why. Why do you cry?

Oh I cry for the child I left behind.

I cry for the loviní arms of my man.

When I cry, Honey donít ask me why.

If I cry, just hold me a while.
