written by Smokey Robinson
 intro riff x 2 (notes:a-f#-d-f#-a-g#; a-f#-d-c#-b-a)

Verse 1:
[a] [d] [Bm] [E]  
People say I'm the life of the party
a d (d-c#-b-a walk down lick)
Cause I tell a joke or two
[a] [d] [Bm] [E]  
All though I might be laughing loud and hearty
[a] [d] [Bm] [E]  
Deep inside I'm blue
[a] [d] [Bm] [E]  
So take a good look at my face
[a] [d] [Bm] [E]  
You know my smile looks out of place
[a] [d] [Bm]  
If you look closer it's easy to trace
[E] [a] [d] [Bm] [E]  
The tracks of my tears
[d-a] [d-a]  
Oh, I need you (need you) need you (need you)
Verse 2:
Since you left me if you see me with another guy
lookin' like I'm havin' fun
Although he might be cute, he's just a substitute're the permanent one
[d-a] [d-a]  
(Out-side) I'm masqueradin'
[d-a] [d-a]  
(In-side) My heart's a-fadin'
[d-a] [d-a]  
(I'm just a clown) since you put me down
[F#m] [E] 
My smile is my makeup I wear since my break up with you
repeat Chorus

Could it be that the verses don't have the Bm but instead A D Em D that way you are in position to do the walk down?
Haven't heard the song in a while but thats how I recall it. When trigger was a colt.
