Cry If You Want  Who



[A]Once it was just innocence
Brash ideas and insolence
But [G/A]you will never get away[D/A]
With the things you say to[A]day
But you [G/A]cry [D/A]if you [A]want[G/A] [D/A]
[A]Don't [A]you [A/G]get em[A]barr[A]assed [A/G]when you [A]read [A]the [A/G]precious [A]things [A]you [D]said
[A]Many [A]ma[A/G]ny y[A]ears ago [A/G]when [A]life appea[A/G]red [A]rosy [D]red
[A]No [A]one [A]ev[A/G]er s[A]hared [A]your [D]bed
[A]No[A]thing[A/G] ever [A]filled [A]your [D]head
Ex[A]cept [A]your[A]self [A/G]and [A]little [D]Ted
And [A]scary [A]dreams [A/G]that [A]you were [D]dead
[D]Don't you want to hide your face
When [Dsus4/C]going through your teenage looks
[D]Read the kind of crap you wrote
About [Dsus4/C]ban the bomb and city crooks
[D]Think about how long it took
To [Dsus4/C]get over that sudden yuk
When [D]in the mirror you would look
Well [Dsus4/C]now my son you're well in stook
[A]Cry if you want[G/A]
[D]Cry if you want
[A]Cry if you want[G/A]
[D]Cry if you want
Didn't you writhe in anger when you saw the man in his big car
Didn't you drive a banger and a gallon didn't get you far
Should have been a famous star
But that ain't what you really are
You could shout your last hurrah
While they are propping up the bar
Maybe things were better then
Before you led a promised life
Rash commitments heavy raps
And left-wing spiel all compromised
You fall in love with other's wives
Drive 'em nuts with empty lies
Angry 'cause you lost the prize
Forgot the color of their eyes
[repeat cborus]

[A7]Let your [A7sus4]tears flow
[A7]Let your [A7sus4]past go
Don't you get embarrassed when you think about the way you were
Yesterday the day before when you were young with much to learn
Aren't you glad it's your last term
No more acting lowly worm
You can make the suckers squirm
When you tell 'em how much you earn
Don't you feel ashamed at all the bitterness you feel inside
Does your ego save your face
I had a go, I really tried
Now you know your leaders lied
Does it stop you acting snide or are you still a boy that cried
Tears now surely long since dried
[repeat cborus]
