Pere Ubu - Cry lyrics

Cry one time for the Man in the Moon.
Cry for the Old Man and the Sea.
Cry once for hope.
Cry once for us and the way things turned out to be.

Cry for tomorrow.
Cry for today.
Cry for the lives that we've frittered away.

Cry one time for the harvester's plight.
Cry for the old man on his knees.
Cry once for all.
Then cry for the dawn of the day neither one of us wanted to see.
