MAN WHO MAKES YOU LAUGH, THE (Anthony Newley) Anthony Newley - 1977 Look around you Mister Clown, you're drowning in your dreams A sea of strangers, each one reaching out for you Make us laugh, Mister Funny Man Fame at last, Mister Funny Man Could the love you crave be waiting in some woman's heart Or must you spend these endless nights alone among the crowd Bowing for their laughter in the dark Wiping off the custard pie that life just loves to throw Knowing when the audience goes home, that you'll be alone Look at me, look at me, I'm the funny man Have you ever heard such clever stuff before Applauded Time magazine, "He's the laughter machine" I'm the man who makes you laugh You killed 'em at the Palace and you thrilled 'em in L.A. The waiters at the deli know it all by heart Make us laugh, Mister Funny Man Be a daft, dummy, funny man Everyone's an audience and life's a funny line But when the curtains sinking are you thinking of the day Mother gave your dancing shoes a shine Pushed you on the stage and whispered, "Kid, you'll be alright" The spotlight hurts your eyes But stirred the spark that burns now in your heart Look at me, look at me, I'm the funny man And my home is any microphone thats free Me with nerves of caffiene, I'm the laughter machine I'm the man who makes you laugh The monster with the thousand eyes is shouting to be fed Get your head together for the second show Make us laugh, Mister Funny Man Autographs, Mister Funny Man Fear will drink your whiskey while you think of her embrace Trying to forget her, though her letter of goodbye Stares as you repair your painted face When did she discover that the spotlight was your love I ask my own reflection and I see the funny man is me Look at me, look at me, I'm the funny man "Hello, folks," it seems the joke was all on me But that's all in the dream of the laughter machine I'm the man who makes..... Ha, ha, ha, ha Ha, ha, ha, ha Ha, ha, ha, ha (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - November 2014)
