Tears of a Clown
- 96 Views
Now if there's a smile upon my face it's only there trying to fool the public but when it comes down to fooling you now honey that's quite a diff'rent subject Don't let my glad expression give you the wrong impression really I'm sad Oh, sadder than sad, you're gone and I'm hurting so bad like a clown I pretend to be glad Now there's some sad things known to man but ain't too much sadder than the tears of a clown, when there's no one around Oh yeah, baby, Now if I appear to be carefree, it's only to camouflage my sadness in order to shield my pride I try to cover this hurt with a show of gladness But Don't let my show convince you that I've been happy since you decided to go, I need you so, I'm hurt and I want you to know but for others I put on a show Now there's some sad things known to man but ain't too much sadder than the tears of a clown, when there's no one around Just like Pagliacci did I try to keep my sadness hid smiling in the public eye but in my lonely room I cry the tears of a clown Oh, yeah baby Now, if there's a smile on my face Don't let my glad expression Give you a wrong impression Don't let this smile I wear Make you think that I don't care Now there's some sad things known to man but ain't too much sadder than the tears of a clown, when there's no one around
