This song is by Teena Marie and appears on the album Naked To The World (1988).

Original video
Tears on your pillow
Falling down around you everywhere
What makes you think that
After all this time I really care
Used to think you were the sweetest guy on earth
But now, in fact I see
All those nights, I waited for you
You were ripping, running in the streets
And now you're crying crocodile tears

Keep on crying crocodile tears
Tell your story sob sad, oh!
Keep on crying crocodile tears
'Cause it's driving you mad

Lipstick and perfume saturate your clothing
It's not mine
Don't look surprised, boy
Thinking that I'm not the hurting kind
Ran into an old friend
And she told me 'bout a guy whose love was true
(Yeah, I met this guy, I look good, he look good)
(Our baby's gonna look good, I'm so in love!)
Then I saw a snapshot
And I guess you know the picture was of you
And now you're crying crocodile tears

Keep on crying crocodile tears
Tell your story sob sad, oh!
Keep on crying crocodile tears
(Good Lord!)
'Cause it's driving you mad

What makes you think that I'm still in love with you
After all this time
How can you stand there and say you love me too
(You love me)
When I know you're out of your mind
(Y-you must be crazy, baby boy)

Ha-ha-ha, you've got to be kidding
Do you want one violin or the whole orchestra?
Tears, yeah, that's the ticket, big ones
But I think I'll just give you one violin

My darling, I loved you so
My darling, I loved you so

'Cause I loved you with a passion
And I loved you with a love you know was true
And I loved you with conviction
There is nothing in this world I would not do
So you can stop your crocodile
Tears make you think that I still could love you true
After all this time
How can you stand there and say you love me too
When I know you're out of your mind

T-t-t-t-t-t-t-t-t-t-tears
T-tears, t-t-t-tears
T-tears, t-t-tears
T-tears, crocodile tears!

T-t-t-t-t-t-t-t-t-t-tears
T-tears, t-t-t-tears
T-tears, t-t-tears
T-tears, crocodile tears!

Keep on crying crocodile tears
Tell your story, tell your story
Keep on crying crocodile tears
Tell your story, tell it to me, baby!

Aye, crocodile... tears!
(T-tears, t-tears)
Crocodile tears
(T-tears, t-tears, t-tears, t-tears)

Tears!
Crocodile tears!
Mega tears! Uh!
Big ones! Uh!

Tears!
Crocodile tears!
Mega tears! Uh!
Big ones! Lord!

Goodbye, baby!
(Goodbye, baby)
Goodbye, let's call it a day

Wait a minute, Kita
Wait a minute, baby, wait a minute
Let me see that picture again
Girl, you're gonna believe this
But this is my man!
Uh, Jimmy!

I just-I just love the piano

Boom-shaka-laka-laka!
Boom-b-boom!

As I was saying, I'll tell you what
This is what we gonna do
We gonna-we'll go for you to party, baby
We gonna get up and put our money together
We gonna run a check and we just gonna go partying
'Cause you know what?
I'm just gonna be a diva
And I'm not even gonna worry about no man right now
I just gonna get on my knees and boogie, baby!
