I Didn’t Mean to Make You Cry

by Dean Friedman

I know I’ve been knockin’ you to and fro.
Got you walkin’ on tip-toe.
I’m a no good so and so. And…
I see that you’re trying to be nice to me.
And it doesn’t take a P.H.D. to see I’m acting like an s.o.b.

And what’s the use? You can only take so much abuse.
My brains must be loose. And I got no excuse. But…

I Didn’t Mean to Make You Cry.
There’s something wrong and I’m the reason why. No,
I Didn’t Mean to Make You Cry.


Well you said, that I should get outta bed.
And turn the TV off instead, go out and earn my daily bread.
And I knew that the only thing left to do was
Try to make it up to you or you’d say, toodle-oo.
Now I’m dumb and I had to be quarrelsome,
I’m such a lazy bum. Baby look what I’ve done. But…

I Didn’t Mean to Make You Cry.
There’s something wrong and I’m the reason why. No,
I Didn’t Mean to Make You Cry.

Well, I say, that everything is not O.K.
My life’s in disarray. I need to get away.
And I bet a whole pack of cigarettes,
The reason you’re so upset is you’re afraid that I’ll forget.
Now hear this, that is not the way it is.
I know I’ve been remiss, but I’ll fix it with a kiss. And…

I Didn’t Mean to Make You Cry.
There’s something wrong and I’m the reason why. No,
I Didn’t Mean to Make You Cry.
