the joker (that’s what they call me) lyrics – billy myles

the joker is
what they call me
my friends say i’ve
never seemed so gay

but if they only knew
how much i cry for you
their laughter would
surely fade away

the joker
is always laughing
as though he’s the
gayest guy in town

he plays a winning part
while memories crush his heart
yet he goes on laughing
like a clown

i tried so hard
to pretend, dear
that losing you
meant nothing to me

but till you’re mine
once again, dear
make believe is all
my life will be
ha ha ha ha ha ha

the joker
though he seems happy
because you have
found the someone new

but somewhere deep inside
beneath his strange disguise
the joker is crying over you

i tried so hard
to pretend, dear
that losing you
meant nothing to me

but till you’re mine
once again, dear
make believe is all
my life will be
ha ha ha ha ha ha

the joker
though he seems happy
because you have
found the someone new

but somewhere deep inside
beneath his strange disguise
the joker is crying over you
