The Great Pretender Lyrics

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 is this feeling of make believe

 

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 still around
