Now that the show is over
And the people have all gone
I face the final curtain
It's just the same old song
I make 'em laugh - I make 'em cry
Dream on loud until I die alone
With a heart of stone?

I'm pushing every fader
For tenderness and fame
Another masquerader
And noone left to blame
The tears inside - the burning rains
I have to hide - my smile remains
As long as walls come tumbling down
The world always needs a clown

I know the world keeps spinning round
And round and round again
I catch the flames of yesterday
And I do the best I can
Well, I'm the entertainer
A poet in the ring
Some call me a joker
And some like to hear me sing

The world always needs a clown
