Do big boys cry? Do they come down
From their place on high, to the dirty ground?
Well, what do I do, I'm a big boy, too

(Cry) They claim fault now and then (big boys)
(Cry) In speeches on humility (big boys)
(Cry) But do they step down from the stage? (big boys)
(Cry) Go forward, (big boys) confess to the crime
Weep with the victim?

Do big boys cry? Are they a step beyond
Shouting 'bout right, but living wrong?
Well, what'll I say, I'm just that way

(Cry) There's got to be a break down (big boys)
(Cry) A healing in the tears (big boys)
(Cry) There's got to be a phone call (big boys)
(Cry) Break habits (big boys)

One has to apologize, even to the little guys

(Cry) They claim fault now and then (big boys)
(Cry) In speeches on humility (big boys)
(Cry) But do they step down from the stage (big boys)
(Cry) Go forward (big boys),
Confess to the crime Weep with the victim?

Do big boys cry? Do they come down
from their place on high, to the dirty ground?
Well, what'll I do, I'm a big boy, too
