    Well you should be an actress
    You play your part so well
    Your act is so believable
    That no one else can tell

    You say the lines, but I see
    That you don't really love me

    You keep me around to be your faithful clown
    Till someone you can love comes along
    You'll keep on pretending
    Because the show must go on

    Yes, you should be an actress
    As lovely as you are
    The way you play on emotion
    You'd shame the brightest star

    You're acting all the time
    No, you're not really mine

    I'm just another scene in your play acting scheme
    No, you don't love me at all
    But when you walk away
    That's when the curtain will fall

    But I'll go all the way to the end of the play
    I'll be a part of your masquerade
    Although I know it may be the saddest show
    In the life of a fool on parade
