NC                      Db  Gb 
Now, if there's a smile up..on my face,
B    Gb         Db        Gb       B
It's only there trying to fool the public.
Gb                Db
But when it comes down to fooling you,
B    Gb           Db            Gb     B
Now, honey that's quite a different subject.

Gb    Db     Gb          B
Don't let my glad expression,
Gb       Db  Gb      B
Give you the wrong impression.
    Gb         Db Gb B          Gb
really I'm sad.......Oh, I'm sadder than sad.
Db     Gb   B           Gb     Db
You're gone and I'm hurting so bad,
Gb           B        Gb    Db   Gb B
Like a clown I appear to be glad.. 

Gb                Ab                  F
Now, they're some sad things known to man,
but ain't too much sadder than,
Gbmaj7         Db                               Db Gb Db
the tears of a clown, when there's no one around. 


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, decided to go.
I need you so, I'm hurt and I want you to know, 
but for others I put on a show...

B       Gb            Db   Gb   B    Db
Now, if I appear just like Pagliacci did,
Db       Gb      B  Gb
I try to keep my sadness hid.
    Db         Gb     B    Gb
Smiling in the public eye, but in my
Db          Gb     B         Gb   Db
lonely room I cry, the tears of a clown,
                           Db Gb Db
when there's no one around.


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... 

A sixties smash from Kraziekhat.
