the great pretender lyrics – freddie mercury

oh yes i’m the great pretender (ooh ooh)
pretending i’m doing well (ooh ooh)
my need is such i pretend too much
i’m lonely but no one can tell

oh yes i’m the great pretender (ooh ooh)
adrift in a world of my own (ooh ooh)
i play the game but to my real shame
you’ve 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 i’m the great pretender (ooh ooh)
just laughing and gay like a clown (ooh ooh)
i seem to be what i’m not (you see)
i’m 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 i’m the great pretender
just laughing and gay like a clown (ooh ooh)
i seem to be what i’m not you see
i’m wearing my heart like a crown
pretending that you’re
pretending that you’re still around
