Roy Orbison – Pantomime lyrics

Well, thanks a lot, thank you
Now I'm the talk of the town
Of all the fools they drink to
I am the king of the clowns

I play the lonely joker
I take what fun I can find
I laugh when things aren't funny
I throw away my last dime

You're not mine
So I waste my time in pantomime
It's pantomime

I'm ready for lonely fun time, yeah
Loud music may dull my mind
Black coffee and electric sunshine, yeah
Get set for this pantomime

I cry inside 'cause you're not mine
I die inside 'cause you're not mine, I pantomime
Laughing when I feel like crying
Crying when I feel like dying

You're not mine
So I waste my time in pantomime

Bring on the girls and the parties, yeah
Guitars and drums beating time
Be merry, be gay and hardy, yeah
I'm set for this pantomime
