[Verse 1]

You say you played the fool. 

You tried to play it cool. 

You left her standing there all alone. 

Now you wonder why 

You sit alone and cry. 

But now your cupboard's bare 

You should have know that 

You'd be a happy man 

If you could turn back the hands of time. 

You know that I understand 

Because I've seen it all through your eyes. 

 

[Chorus]

That's how I know cryin' ain't gonna win her back, 

And beggin' ain't gonna make her crack. 

I done told ya cryin' ain't gonna win her back. 

Oh, no, no, no. 

Flowers ain't gonna get you jack. 

Because I tried, tried, tried, tried, tried 

When she was mine. 

 

[Verse 2]

I've seen it all before. 

You had an open door, 

But you just ignore what you've been handed. 

And now you're sweet on her, 

But now she don't concur. 

She turned her back on you 

And left you stranded. 

You'd be a happy man 

If you were startin' all over again. 

I told you that I understand 

Because I've been right where you've been. 

 

[Chorus]

I'm tellin' ya cryin' ain't gonna win her back. 

No, no, no. And beggin' ain't gonna make her crack. 

That's why I'm tellin' ya cryin' ain't gonna win her back. 

No, no, no. Flowers ain't gonna get you jack. 

Oh, no, because I tried, tried, tried, tried, tried 

When she was mine. 

Oh, listen to me good now. 

Cryin' ain't gonna win her back. 

No, no, no, no, no, 

Beggin' ain't gonna make her crack. 

Oh, no, no. Cryin' ain't gonna win her back. 

Listen what I'm sayin' to you. 

Flowers ain't gonna get you jack. 

I know because I tried, tried, tried, tried, tried 

When she was mine.
