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. oh i'm sadder than sad.
you're gone and i'm hurting so bad.
like a clown i appear to be glad.
well there are some sad things known to man
but ain't too much sadder than
the tears of a clown, when there's no one around
