Now if there's a smile on my face, 
it's only there tryin' to fool the public, 
but when it comes down to foolin' you 
Now honey, that's quite a different subject 

But don't let my glad expression 
give you the wrong impression 
Really I'm sad I'm sadder than sad 
You're gone and I'm hurtin' so bad 
Like a clown I pretend to be glad 

A                                                                     A7
Now there's some sad things known to man, 
                                       G                                        E
but ain't too much sadder than the tears of a clown 
nc
when there's no one around 

Now if I appear to be carefree, 
it's only to camouflage my sadness 
In order to keep my pride 
I try to cover the hurt with a show of gladness 

But don't let my show convince you 
that I've been happy since you decided to go 
Oh, I need you so I'm hurt and I want you to know 

Now there's some sad things known to man, 
but ain't too much sadder than the tears of a clown 
when there's no one around 


You can improvise a solo here.....I think it's played up towards the 12 and 15th frets. 


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
