"(don't) cry over ..." in lyrics

8Ball - Your Sister

Whether it was a no-go with your sister
So I gave in to her desires
Don't cry over spilled milk,
what happened has happened

Ahlam - Mother Hen

I’m not a mother hen … to listen to what bothers you
I’m not a mother hen … to listen to what bothers you

I’m not dying to get hurt again … what I have is already enough
