Lyrics LIFE IS A PLAY
AND WE ALL PLAY A PART,
THE LOVER, THE DREAMER,
THE CLOWN.
THE DREAMER AND LOVER
ARE ALWAYS IN TEARS,
THE CLOWN
SPREADS SUNSHINE AROUND.
THE LIFE WITH A SMILE
IS THE LIFE WORTHWHILE,
THE CLOWN
TILL THE CURTAIN COMES DOWN.

EVEN THOUGH
YOU'RE ONLY MAKE BELIEVING,
LAUGH, CLOWN, LAUGH!
EVEN THOUGH
SOMETHING INSIDE IS GRIEVING,
LAUGH, CLOWN, LAUGH!
DON'T LET YOUR HEART GROW
TOO MELLOW,
JUST BE A REAL PUNCHINELLO, FELLOW.
YOU'RE SUPPOSED
TO BRIGHTEN UP A PLACE
AND LAUGH, CLOWN, LAUGH!
PAINT A LOT OF SMILES
AROUND YOUR FACE
AND LAUGH, CLOWN, DON'T FROWN.
DRESSED IN YOUR BEST
COLORED HUMOR,
BE A PALLIETTO
AND LAUGH, CLOWN, LAUGH!
