"Cry Baby" is a song from Madonna's second sound track album I'm Breathless for the movie Dick Tracy.

Background

Madonna explained that the song was about a guy who is "too sensitive and soft".

Composition

The melody is heard over the interlining synth strings, horns and trumpets, and a bass and the chorus employs a chromatic chord sequence. The song ends abruptly with a long fade following it.

Lyrics

My guy is really something, he's sensitive and shy
My guy is such a bumpkin, it doesn't take much to make him cry
If you hurt someone helpless, it's like taking away all his toys
He's just a cry baby boy

My guy is sentimental, he's always feeling blue
He can be so temperamental and I don't know what I should do
If you step on a little bug he cries all over the floor
He's just a cry baby bore

I don't want to hurt his feelings
But his outbursts have me really
Boo-hoo-hoo-ing all the time
If I turn out like him, I think I'm gonna cry, baby
La, la, la, la, la, la
He's such a cry baby
La, la, la, la, la, la

And I'll tell you something else

My guy is such a wet noodle, he's always teary-eyed
He acts like a real cock-a-doodle, he can't even tell you why
If you just play him a sappy song, he acts like his doggie just died
He's just a cry baby guy

No kidding, oh dear

My guy is such a whiner, he's worse than baddie so
A cockroach seen in the diner, and the tears flow out of the blue
And if I ask him to knock it off, he goes and cries in the can
He's just a cry baby man

I don't want to hurt his feelings
But his outbursts have me really
Boo-hoo-hoo-ing all the time
If I turn out like him, I think I'm gonna cry, baby
La, la, la, la, la, la
He's such a cry baby
La, la, la, la, la, la

I love a cry baby
La, la, la, la, la, la
He's such a cry baby
La, la, la, la, la, la

Would you knock it off please? Thank you
