    Lyrics

    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.
