verse 1
A D G
If there's a smile on my face,
D A D G
it's only there trying to fool the public
D A D G
But when it comes down to fooling you,
D A D G
now honey that's quite a different subject
D A D G D A D G
Don't let my glad expression give you the wrong impression
D A D G D A D
Really I'm sad, oh sadder than sad
G D A D
You're gone and I'm hurting so bad
G D A D G D
Like a clown I pretend to be glad


chorus
E C#/F
Now there's some sad things known to man
F#m D (play intro riff)
But ain't too much saddre than the tears of a clown
When there's no one around

verse 2
If I appear to be carefree
It's only to camouflage my sadness
in order to shield my pride I try
To cover this hurt as 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, but for others I put on a show

verse 3
Just like Pagliacci did I try to keep my sadness hid
Smiling in the public eye, but in my lonesome room i cry
The tears of a clown
