I'll Cry Instead

Album: A Hard Day's Night


I've got every reason on earth to be mad, 'cause I've just lost the only girl I had. If I could get my way, I'd get myself locked up today, but I can't so I cry instead. I've got a chip on my shoulder that's bigger than my feet, I can't talk to people that I meet. If I could see you now, I'd try to make you sad somehow, but I can't so I cry instead. Don't want to cry when there's people there, I get shy when they start to stare, I'm gonna hide myself away, ay hay; But I'll come back again someday. And when I do you'd better hide all the girls, I'm gonna break their hearts all 'round the world. Yes, I'm gonna break them in two, and show you what your loving man can do, until then I'll cry instead.


In this song of John's, he speaks of being upset by a girl and instead of seeking revenge, he will cry first. When he has cried, he will break girls' hearts purposely as his way of getting even with this girl.
