Tears of a clown

Smokey Robinson



THE TEARS OF A CLOWN- Smokey Robinson and the Miracles
 DCGC
Now if there's a smile on my face 
 DCG
It's only there trying to fool the public
 CDCG
But when it comes down to fooling you
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:
 AF#
Well they're some sad things known to man
 BmG
But ain't too much sadder than
 DCGCDCG
The tears of a clown when there's noone around 
 CDCGCDCGC
 Oh yeah, baby baby,  oh yeah baby baby 

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

 AF#
Just like Pagliacci 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...
