Lyrics: 

(c) 11.10.2012

verse 1

so it is time for your weekend whine
that's why i'm going out and leaving you behind
for my brothers in arms, doing 12 ounce curls; and you can't red rover it
cry a river, build a bridge, and get over it.

verse 2

i'm going out, but not on my own | still i am leaving you at home
no secret plot to get you gone; still you uncover it
cry a river, build a bridge, and get over it.

CHORUS:

cry a river, build a bridge, and get over it.
i just can't drink alone with you one more night
love's like a flame, and you done smothered it;
cry a river, build a bridge, and get over it.

------------------------------> SOLO

verse 3

it's news before i leave the bar--
you're tearin round town, all up in arms.
you'll make me pay; my manhood might just cover it.
hey-- cry a river, build a bridge, and get over it.

verse 4

you wonder why you're all alone
you sit and cry and drink at home
no-one can stand to watch you whine; now you've discovered it
so cry a river, build a bridge, and get over it.

CHORUS
---------------------------------> SOLO

CHORUS OUT

Good melody and bouncy arrangement -- really supports the lyrics well. I like the 'cry a river, build a bridge, and get over it' line a lot.

That's a heck of a hook. I like the rather upbeat, major delivery of this tart lyric.
