"Teardrops" is a song by the English rock musician George Harrison from his ninth studio album Somewhere in England (1981). It was also issued as the second single off the album, in July 1981. As with the lead single, "All Those Years Ago", Harrison completed the song after Warner Bros. Records had rejected his initial submission of Somewhere in England in September 1980. In response to Warner's concerns, he wrote "Teardrops" as an attempt at a commercially oriented song.

Harrison recorded the song at his Friar Park studio in England with Ray Cooper as his co-producer. Despite some reviewers predicting it as a hit, the single failed to achieve commercial success. In the United States, it peaked at number 102 on Billboard's Bubbling Under the Hot 100 chart and number 88 on the Cash Box Top 100.
