The Tears Of A Clown - Smokey Robinson and The Miracles


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 different subject
But don't let my glad expression
Give you the wrong impression
Really I'm sad, Oh I'm sadder than sad
You're gone and I'm hurtin' so bad
Like a clown I appear to be glad ooh yeah

Well they're some sad things known to man
But there ain't too much sadder than
The tears of a clown, when there's no-one around
Hmm Oh yeah, baby

Now if I appear to be carefree
It's only to camouflage my sadness
and honey 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
Oh I need you so
I'm hurt and I want you to know
That for others I put on a show

Well they're some sad things known to man
But there ain't too much sadder than
The tears of a clown, when there's no-one around
Oh yeah

Just like Pagliacci did
I try to keep my surface hid
Smiling in the crowd I try
But in a lonely room I cry
The tears of a clown
When there's no-one around, oh yeah, baby
Now if there's a smile upon my face
Don't let my glad expression
Give you the wrong impression
Don't let this smile I wear
Make you think that I don't care
Cos really I'm sad
