Cry If You Want


 Once it was just innocence
Brash ideas and insolence
But you will never get away 
With the things you say today
But you cry if you want  
 Don't you get embarrassed when you read the precious things you said
 Many many years ago when life appeared rosy red
 No one ever shared your bed
 Nothing ever filled your head
Except yourself and little Ted
And scary dreams that you were dead
 Don't you want to hide your face
When going through your teenage looks
 Read the kind of crap you wrote
About ban the bomb and city crooks
 Think about how long it took
To get over that sudden yuk
When in the mirror you would look
Well now my son you're well in stook
 Cry if you want 
 Cry if you want
 Cry if you want 
 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

 Let your tears flow
 Let your 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
 to fade
