"Cry Me a River" is a popular torch song written by Arthur Hamilton for Ella Fitzgerald in 1953 made famous by Julie London's rendition in 1955. Despite the song's intentions to be sang by Fitzgerald, it wasn't until 1961 that she recorded it. Other notable artists to record the song include Shirley Bassey, Frank Sinatra Jr. and Michael Bublé.

Cover versionEdit

An unreleased cover of the song by Lana Del Rey leaked on August 6, 2015. ID3 tags in the original leaked file suggest it was recorded in 2011. Del Rey's version of the song uses the same instrumental from Michael Bublé's rendition.

LyricsEdit

Now, you say you're lonely
You cried the long night through
Well, you can cry me a river, cry me a river
Honey, I cried a river over you

Now, you say you're sorry
For being so untrue
Well, you can cry me a river, cry me a river
Baby, 'cause I cried a river over you

You drove me, nearly drove me
Right out of my head
While you never shed a tear
Remember, I remember, all that you said
You told me you were too plebeian
Told me you were through with me and

Now, you say, you say you love me
Well, just to prove that you do
Come on, boy, cry me a river, cry me a river
I cried a river over you

Now, you say you're lonely
You cried the long night through
Well, you can cry me a river, cry me a river
Mm, baby, I cried a river over you

Now, you say you're sorry
For being so untrue
Well, you can cry me a river, cry me a river
I cried a river over you
I cried a river over you
