The Great Pretender
Dolly Parton

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 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

Oh Yes I'm the Great Pretender
Just Laughin?and Gay Like a Clown
I Seem to Be What I'm Not, You See
I'm Wearin' My Heart Like a Crown
Pretending That You're Still Around

Too Real Is the Feeling of Make-believe
Too Real When I Feel What My Heart Can't Conceal

Oh Yes I'm the Great Pretender
Just Laughin?and Gay Like a Clown
I Seem to Be What I'm Not, You See
I'm Wearin' This Old Heart Like a Crown
Pretending That You're Still Around

But I Know What I Am
I Am the Great Pretender
