“Oh yeah, are you going to cry? Is the opening track for Lovejoy’s 2021 EP “Pebble Brain”. In the song, the singer makes fun of a friend of his for not being above their ex. However, the singer faces a similar situation in another song “Perfume” on the same album.

The EP ‘Pebble Brain’ follows the debut EP ‘Are You Alright?’ by the British group Lovejoy. The group consists of four members, Wilbur Soot as frontman and vocalist, Joe Goldsmith as guitarist, Ash Kabosu who plays bass and Mark Boardman who is drummer for the group. The EP ‘Pebble Brain’ features seven tracks and was released on October 14, 2021, after being delayed for several months.

The turn of the song is that the singer makes fun of this guy for dating the singer’s ex-girlfriend. The singer points out this guy’s flaws and tells him that even his ex is too good for him. Ouch!

Lovejoy “Oh yeah, are you going to cry?” Lyrics meaning and song review

Throughout the song, Lovejoy taunts a guy for dating the singer’s ex-girlfriend. The taunts range from his traits such as his love for bigger beer and his brawls to his hot-tempered temper and stupid demeanor. The singer has no idea how his ex-girlfriend ended up with this guy. Maybe an overcorrection?

Wilbur Soot’s taunts piss this guy off. After all, he has an angry temper. A guy who likes to get drunk and fight is probably not the best person to be laughed at. But Wilbur Soot is defiant. When this guy gets angry, Wilbur asks him to calm down. It probably makes him explode in anger.

Is she still thinking of me?
Say my name in her sleep

Wilbur’s punches continue. The last thing Wilbur should do is ask her current boyfriend about her ex-girlfriend. And even worse when he asks her if she still says Wilbur’s name in her sleep. It’s just stinging the manic bear at this point.

To add insult to injury, in the song’s second verse, Wilbur Soot adds that this guy’s girlfriend told Wilbur she hated being in a relationship with this guy. This is news for this guy, which makes him even more pissed off.

Wilbur Soot takes it to the next level by mocking her ex-girlfriend’s new boyfriend. To what end? We do not know.
