Laugh everyone at the clown

He's the best one in town, Ummm ummm

Ride on his merry-go-round

Spinning faster than sound

Uuuuh huh Uuuuh huh



Laugh as the funny man cries

Though his makeup is smeared

Uuuuh huuuh

Laugh at his comical tears

As he looks down the years

Uuuuh huh Uuuuh huh



Livin' just a little

Laughing just a little

Ain't easy, Uuuuuh huuuuh



Livin' just a little

Laughing just a little

Ain't easy



Laugh everyone at the fool with his heart in his hand

Uuuuh huuuh

Mmmmm, he can't quite understand that he's less than a man

Uuuuh huuuh Uuuuh huuuh



There's an ember of pride

Uuuuh huuuh

Watch how he tries hard to hide that he's dyin' inside

Uuuuh huuuh

Uuuuh huuuh



Livin' just a little

Laughing just a little

Ain't easy, Uuuuuh huuuuh



Livin' just a little

Laughing just a little

Ain't easy



Livin' just a little

Laughing just a little

Ain't easy, Uuuuuh huuuuh



Livin' just a little

Laughing just a little

Ain't easy
