Big Girls Don’t Cry

By Bob Crewe/Bob Gaudio, 1962


Big girls don’t cry
Big girls don’t cry

Big girls don’t cry
(They don’t cry)
Big girls don’t cry
(Who said they don’t cry?)

My girl said goodbye
(My oh my)
My girl didn’t cry
(I wonder why?)

Told my girl we had to break up
(Silly boy) Hoped that she would call my bluff
(Silly boy) When she said to my surprise
“Big girls don’t cry”

Big girls don’t cry
(They don’t cry)
Big girls don’t cry
(Who said they don’t cry?)

I was cruel
(I was cruel)
Baby, I’m a fool
(I’m such a fool)

Shame on you, your mama said
(Silly girl) Shame on you, you’re cryin’ in bed
(Silly girl) Shame on you, you told a lie
Big girls do cry

Big girls don’t cry
(They don’t cry)
Big girls don’t cry
(That’s just an alibi)

Big girls don’t cry
Big girls don’t cry
Big girls don’t cry
Big girls don’t cry
Big girls don’t cry
