GOODBYE CRUEL WORLD (Words and Music by Gloria Shayne) James Darren Oh, goodbye cruel world, I'm off to join the circus Gonna be a broken-hearted clown Paint my face with a good-for-nothin' smile 'cause a mean, fickle woman turned my whole world upside down (Goodbye cruel world) Farewell to love, I'm off to join the circus Gotta find a way to hide my tears Bet I'll have them rolling in the aisle And I'll forget that woman if it takes a hundred years Oh oh oh, step right up and take a look at a fool He's got a heart as stubborn as a mule C'mon everybody, he's good for a laugh And no one could tell his heart is broken in half Well, the joke's on me, I'm off to join the circus Oh, Mr. Barnum, save a place for me Shoot me out of a cannon, I don't care Let the people point at me and stare I'll tell the world that woman, wherever she may be That mean, fickle woman made a cryin' clown outta me (Goodbye cruel world) Shoot me out of a cannon, I don't care Let the people point at me and stare I'll tell the world that woman, wherever she may be That mean, fickle woman made a cryin' clown outta me
