“Go Cry on Somebody Else's Shoulder”
Artist: The Mothers of Invention
Albums: Freak Out! (1966)

A year ago today
Was when you went away
But now you come back knockin' on my door
And you say you're back to stay
But I say

Go cry
On somebody else's shoulder
I'm somewhat wiser now
And one whole year older
I sure don't need you now
And I don't love you
Anymore

You cheated me baby
And told some dirty lies about me
Fooled around with all those other guys
That's why I had to set you free
I sure don't need you now
And I don't love you
Anymore

Yeah, a year ago today
You went away
And now you come back cryin', cryin'
Darling, please, let me in
But I don't need you
No, I don't love you anymore
So go lean on
Go cry on
Somebody else's door

Go cry
On somebody else's shoulder
I'm somewhat wiser now
And one whole year older
I sure don't need you now
And I don't love you
Anymore

Oh, my darling
Go ahead and cry
Go ahead and let the tears fall out of your eye
Darling
Let 'em fall on your dress
Who cares if it makes a mess?
I gave you my high school ring
At the root beer stand
We had a teen-age love, baby
I thought it was sharp
It was really so grand
But

You cheated me baby
And told some dirty lies about me
Fooled around with all those other guys
That's why I had to get my khakis pressed
I sure don't need you now
And I don't love you
Anymore

Ba-ay-by
Baby
I-I-I-I
I love you so much, darling
I, oh, I love you
Why don't you dig me?
Ba-ay-by
I
I dig you
But you don't dig me
Oh, I need you
I don't understand what it is
Ba-ay-by
I
I had my car re-upholstered
I got my hair processed
(Oh, I love you)
I got a nice pompadour job on it
Oh, my baby
I bought a new pair of shoes
Oh, my love
I got some new khakis and I met you
And we went out to get a Coca-Cola
