The Platters - The great pretender
Tekst en muziek: Buck Ram
(1955)






Oh-oh yes, I’m the great pretender
Ohoho
Pretending that I’m doing well
Ohoho
My need is such, I pretend too much
I’m lonely, but no one can tell



Oh-oh yes, I’m the great pretender
Ohoho
Adrift in a world of my own
Ohoho
I’ve played the game, but to my real shame
You’ve left me to grieve all alone



Too real is this feeling of make-believe
Ohoho
Too real when I feel what my heart can’t conceal
Ohohohohohohohoho



Yes, I’m the great pretender
Ohoho
Just laughin’ and gay like a clown
Ohoho
I seem to be what I’m not, you see
I’m wearing my heart like a crown
Pretending that you’re still around
Ohoho



Too real is this feeling of make-believe
Ohoho
Too real when I feel what my heart can’t conceal
Ohohohohohohohoho



Yes, I’m the great pretender
Ohoho
Just laughin’ and gay like the clown
Ohoho
I seem to be what I’m not, you see
I’m wearing my heart like a crown
Pretending that you’re still around
Still around
