Oh, I can't take another heartache
Though you say your my friend, I'm at my wit's end
You say your love is bona fide
But that don't coincide
With the things that you do
And when I ask you to be nice
You say you've got to be

Cruel to be kind in the right measure
Cruel to be kind it's a very good sign
Cruel to be kind means that I love you
Baby (you got to be cruel)
You got to be cruel to be kind

Well I do my best to understand dear
But you still mystify, and I want to know why
I pick myself up off the ground
To have you knock me back down
Again and again, and when I ask you to explain
You say, you've got to be

Cruel to be kind in the right measure
Cruel to be kind it's a very good sign
Cruel to be kind means that I love you
Baby (you got to be cruel)
You got to be cruel to be kind
Oh

Well I do my best to understand dear
But you still mystify, and I want to know why
I pick myself up off the ground
To have you knock me back down
Again and again, and when I ask you to explain
You say, you've got to be

Cruel to be kind in the right measure
Cruel to be kind it's a very good sign
Cruel to be kind means that I love you
Baby (you got to be cruel)
You got to be cruel to be kind

Cruel to be kind in the right measure
Cruel to be kind it's a very, very, very good sign
Cruel to be kind means that I love you
Baby (you got to be cruel)
You got to be cruel to be kind

Cruel to be kind in the right measure
Cruel to be kind it's a very, very, very good sign
Cruel to be kind means that I love you
Baby (you got to be cruel)
You got to be cruel to be kind

Cruel To Be Kind Lyrics

Marshall Crenshaw – Cruel To Be Kind Lyrics

Oh, I can't take another heartache
Though you say your my friend, I'm at my wit's end
You say your love is bona fide
But that don't coincide
With the things that you do
And when I ask you to be nice
You say you've got to be

Cruel to be kind in the right measure
Cruel to be kind it's a very good sign
Cruel to be kind means that I love you
Baby (you got to be cruel)
You got to be cruel to be kind

Well I do my best to understand dear
But you still mystify, and I want to know why
I pick myself up off the ground
To have you knock me back down
Again and again, and when I ask you to explain
You say, you've got to be

Cruel to be kind in the right measure
Cruel to be kind it's a very good sign
Cruel to be kind means that I love you
Baby (you got to be cruel)
You got to be cruel to be kind
Oh

Well I do my best to understand dear
But you still mystify, and I want to know why
I pick myself up off the ground
To have you knock me back down
Again and again, and when I ask you to explain
You say, you've got to be

Cruel to be kind in the right measure
Cruel to be kind it's a very good sign
Cruel to be kind means that I love you
Baby (you got to be cruel)
You got to be cruel to be kind

Cruel to be kind in the right measure
Cruel to be kind it's a very, very, very good sign
Cruel to be kind means that I love you
Baby (you got to be cruel)
You got to be cruel to be kind

Cruel to be kind in the right measure
Cruel to be kind it's a very, very, very good sign
Cruel to be kind means that I love you
Baby (you got to be cruel)
You got to be cruel to be kind
