Now if there's a smile on my face
But when it comes down to fooling you

Give you the wrong impression
Well I'm hurt and I want you so bad

But ain't too much sadder than
Oh yeah, baby baby, oh yeah baby baby
Now if I appear to be carefree
And honey to shield my pride I try
But don't let my show convince you
'Cause I need to go, oh I need you so
For others I put on a show ...
Well they're some sad things known to man
The tears of a clown when there's no one around

I try to keep my surface hid
But in a lonely room I cry
When there's no one around, oh yeah, baby baby
Don't let my glad expression
Don't let this smile I wear
