The tears of a clown Lyrics by Stevie Wonder

 

The tears of a clown by Stevie Wonder


Oh, yeah yeah yeah
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, 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 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
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
When there's no one around
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
But really I'm sad
Hurting so bad
