Lyrics

Said, oh yeah, baby, baby Now if there's a smile on my face It's only there trying to fool the public But when it comes down to fooling you Well now, honey, that's quite a different subject So don't let my glad expression Give you the wrong impression 'Cause really, I'm sad (so sad, sad) Oh, I'm sadder than sad (so sad, sad) Look, I'm hurt and I want you so bad (so sad, sad) Like a clown, I appear to be glad Ooh yeah, well 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 I said, oh yeah, baby, baby, baby Oh yeah, baby, baby, 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 it up with a show of gladness So don't let my show convince you That I've been happy since you Decided to go Oh, I need you so Look, I'm hurt and I want you to know Just for others I put on a show Ooh yeah, well 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 So, just like Pagliacci did I'm gonna keep my sadness hid Hiding in the gloom, I try But in this lonely room, I cry The tears of a clown When there's no one around Now, if there's a smile on my face Well, don't let my glad expression Give you the wrong impression Don't let this smile I wear Make you feel that I don't care Tears of a clown Tears of a clown I'm going down and down I'm going downtown Tears of a clown
