Elkie Brooks – Don't Cry Out Loud lyrics


Baby cried the day the circus came to town.
'Cause she didn't like parades just passing by her.
So she painted on a smile and took up with some clown.
And she danced without a net upon the wire.
I know a lots about her'cause you see. Baby is an awful lot like me.

We don't cry out loud, we keep it inside. Leam how to hide our feelings, fly high and proud.
And if you should fall remember you almost had it all.

Baby saw the day they pulled the big top down.
They left be-hind her dreams among the litter. And the dif- f'rent kind of love she thought she'd found was nothing more than sawdust and sorne glitter. But baby can't be broken 'cause you see. She had the finest teacher, that's me.

I taught her don't cry out loud, just keep it inside. Leam how to hide your feelings, fly high and proud. And if you should fall remember you almost had it. Don't cry out loud, keep it inside..........
