Tears of a clown  Smokey Robinson



THE TEARS OF A CLOWN- Smokey Robinson and the Miracles
Now if there's a s[D]mile on m[C]y fa[G]ce[C]
It's only th[D]ere trying to fo[C]ol the pu[G]blic
But w[C]hen it co[D]mes down to fo[C]oling y[G]ou
C D C G C (etc...)
Now honey that's quite a different subject
But don't let my glad expression
Give you the wrong impression
Cos really I'm sad, Oh I'm sadder than sad
Well I'm hurt and I want you so bad
Like a clown I appear to be glad ooh yeah

CHORUS:
Well they're some s[A]ad things known to [F#]man
But ain't t[Bm]oo much sadder th[G]an
The tears of a c[D]lo[C]wn[G] when there's n[C]oone aro[D]und[C] [G]
[C]Oh yeah, b[D]aby bab[C]y,[G]  o[C]h yeah ba[D]by bab[C]y[G] [C]

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
Cos I need to go, oh I need you so
Look I'm hurt and I want you to know
For others I put on a show ...CHORUS

Just like [A]Pagliacci [F#]did
I try to keep my surface hid
Smiling in the crowd I try
But in a lonely room I cry
The tears of a clown
When there's noone around, oh yeah, baby baby

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
Cos really I'm sad...
