It’s OK to Cry

As I was walking on my way to school just yesterday
I saw the saddest thing right along the way
A lifeless little birdie lyin’ on the street
And I didn’t want my friends to see the tear’s upon my cheek
But I remembered what my mom told me
One cold and stormy night
When you’re a little sad
It’s OK to cry

It’s OK to cry, it’s OK to cry
Anytime you feel a tear or two in your eyes
Cuz they will always clear the way for warm and happy smiles
It’s OK to cry, it’s OK to cry

I remember it was just about a year ago
My daddy took me out to see a special picture show
About a girl and boy who were the best of friends
But the story had the saddest end
Then I remembered what my mom told me
And now I know it’s true
When I looked up at dad he was crying too

It’s OK to cry, it’s OK to cry
Anytime you feel a tear or two in your eyes
Cuz they will always clear the way for warm and happy smiles
It’s OK to cry, it’s OK to cry
