Words and music by buck ram

Oh yes Im the great pretender (ooh ooh)
Pretending Im doing well (ooh ooh)
My need is such I pretend too much
Im lonely but no one can tell

Oh yes Im the great pretender (ooh ooh)
Adrift in a world of my own (ooh ooh)
I play the game but to my real shame
Youve left me to dream all alone

Too real is this feeling of make believe
Too real when I feel what my heart can't conceal

Ooh ooh yes Im the great pretender (ooh ooh)
Just laughing and gay like a clown (ooh ooh)
I seem to be what Im not (you see)
Im wearing my heart like a crown
Pretending that you're still around

Yeah ooh hoo
Too real when I feel what my heart can't conceal

Oh yes Im the great pretender
Just laughing and gay like a clown (ooh ooh)
I seem to be what Im not you see
Im wearing my heart like a crown
Pretending that youre
Pretending that you're still around
