Eels – Sad Clown lyrics

All the little children playin' in the yard
A sunny day for them nothing's really hard
But they don't know what it's like to wear
Shoes so big that people stare

All the little children forget my name
They're all to busy playin' their stupid game
But they have no clue what it is
To be inside of todays showbiz

I am a sad clown
My smile is upside down

No amount of make-up can conceil
The pain in my heart that I feel
Laughing fools at what I say
But know inside there's hell to pay

I am a sad clown
My smile is upside down
All the little children forget my name
All the little children forget my name
