Smokey Robinson And The Miracles
[Intro] Oh, yeah, yeah [Verse 1] 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 Now, honey, that's quite a different subject But don't let my glad expression Give you the wrong impression Really I'm sad (sad, sad, sad, sad) Oh I'm sadder than sad (I'm hurt so bad) You're gone, and I'm hurtin' so bad (I pretend to be glad) Like a clown, I pretend to be glad (sad, sad, sad, sad) [Chorus] 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 [Verse 2] Now if I appear to be carefree It's only to camouflage my sadness And honey, 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 (why did you go?) Oh I need you so (I need you so) I'm hurt and I want you to know (want you to know) But for others I put on a show (it's just a show) Ooh yeah [Chorus] 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 [Bridge] Just like Pagliacci did I try to keep my sadness hid [Chorus] 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 [Outro] Now if there's a smile on my face Don't let my glad expression Give you the wrong impression Don't let this smile I wear Make you think that I don't care When really I'm sad, I'm hurting so bad
