Smokey Robinson lyrics : "Tears Of A Clown"

Now if there's a smile on my face,
it's only there tryin' to fool the public,
but when it comes down to foolin' 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.
I'm sadder than sad.
You're gone and I'm hurtin' 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.

Now if I appear to be carefree,
it's only to camouflage my sadness.
In order to SHIELD my pride I try

to cover the 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.

Just like Pagliacci did,
I try to keep my sadness hid.

smilin' in the public eye
while in my lonely room I cry
the tears of a clown

when there's no one around.
