Cry Baby was the United Kingdom entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 2003 in Riga performed by pop duo Jemini.

In the final, it performed 15th following the Netherlands and preceding Ukraine. At the close of voting, it had scored the dreaded Nul Points, making it the country's worst performing entry since they started participating. Additionally, this was the first song in English that had ever failed to score in the contest.

The duo would blame this poor showing on a technical fault which led to them being unable to hear the backing track, with member Chris Cromby even claiming that BBC commentator Terry Wogan had told them to expect such a result due to the country's participation in the Iraq War. However, the majority of the British media blamed the result on the poor quality of the song and that it was sung out of tune.

Lyrics

Love, love’s not enough
I need your trust
But you don’t try anymore

Hon, you still turn me on
Though your love has gone
And I don’t wanna cry anymore
I thought our love would last forever

Bye bye, baby
Lied to me, baby
Must have been crazy
Baby, bye bye

Cry, cry, baby
Lied to me, baby
Survive without you, baby
Baby, bye, baby, bye bye

You’re living a lie
You won’t say goodbye
You just keep me hanging on

I’ve got my whole life to live
Got more love to give
Got to get a life of my own

I know you’re looking for something else
Not gonna settle for anything less, so…

Bye bye, baby
You lied to me, baby
I must have been crazy
Baby, bye bye
(It’s your turn to cry)

Cry, cry, baby
You lied to me, baby
I’ll survive without you, baby
Baby, bye, baby, bye bye

Bye bye, baby
You lied to me, baby
I must have been crazy, bye bye
Baby, bye bye
(It’s your turn to cry)

Cry, cry, baby
You lied to me, baby
I’ll survive without you, baby
Baby, bye, baby, bye bye

I’ve had enough of baby love
I need a love that is strong and tough
Someone to hold me when things get rough
I need a love that is big enough

Bye-bye, baby
Lied to me, baby
Must have been crazy
Baby, bye bye

Cry, cry, baby
Lied to me, baby
Survive without you, baby
Baby, bye, baby, bye bye
Baby, bye bye

Cry, cry, baby
You lied to me
I must have been crazy
Baby, it’s your turn to cry

Cry, cry, baby
(Oh no)
Cry, cry, baby
(I don’t wanna cry)
Cry, cry, baby
Baby, bye, baby, bye bye

Oh, baby, bye bye
(Oh yeah, don’t wanna cry no more)
Oh, baby, bye bye

Cry, baby, cry, baby
Cry, baby, cry, baby
Cry, baby
