"The Great Pretender" as written by and Buck Ram....
Oh-oh, yes I?m the great pretender
Pretending that I?m doing well
My need is such I pretend too much
I?m lonely but no one can tell

Oh-oh, yes I?m the great pretender
Adrift in a world of my own
I?ve played a 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

Oh-oh yes I?m the great pretender
Just laughing and gay like a clown
I seem to be but I?m not, you see
I?m wearing my heart like a crown
Pretending that you?re still around

Oh-oh-oh yes I?m the great pretender (Ooh-ooh)
Pretending that I?m doing well (Ooh-ooh)
My need is such I pretend too much
I?m lonely but no one can tell

Too real is this feeling of make-believe
Too real when I feel what my heart can?t conceal

Oh-oh yes I?m the great pretender (Ooh-ooh)
Just laughing and gay like a clown (Ooh-ooh)
I seem to be but I?m not, you see
I?m wearing my heart like a crown
Pretending that you?re still around
Still around
