The Clown

I know you, You know me
I wanted more, than there could ever be
What did I say? What could I do?
What have I done? I’ve upset you.

Shake me down, ‘cos I am the clown
I’m the one the joke that’s free
Shake me down, and I’ll play the clown
Never knew the joke would end on me.

Take me home, Don’t leave me alone
Don’t make me cry, I might just die
I make me laugh, maybe I’ll smile
It’s just my heart, that’s all that’s on trial

Shake me down, ‘cos I am the clown
I’m the one the joke that sets you free
Shake me down, ‘cos I’ll play the clown
Never knew the joke would end on me.

I’m the clown, I’m the clown
I’m the clown - the joke's on me
