Skeeter Davis – Face Of A Clown lyrics

It's hard for me to smile I feel like crying
Yet I always manage to grin
Friends won't know the pain that I feel
Or the misery that I'm in.

Everyone thinks I'm so happy
For I smile and never frown
But looks are deceiving and nobody knows
The hurt behind the face of a clown.

I've got my pride and my tears I'll hide
Whenever you're around
You'll never, never know you hurt me so
For I have a face of a clown.

I'll try to conceal this pain that I feel
I can't let it get me down
You won't have the pleasure of knowing
The hurt behind the face of a clown.

(You won't have the pleasure of knowing)
The hurt behind the face of a clown...
