​Laughin' and Clowin'

This song is by Otis Rush and appears on the album Any Place I'm Going (1998).

This song is a cover of "Laughin' and Clownin'" by ​Sam Cooke.
I'm laughin' and I'm clownin'
Just to keep from cryin'
I'm laughin' and I'm clownin'
Just to keep from cryin'
You see I'm tryin' to hide my feelin'
And that I've got a worried mind

Now listen, being life of the party
It seemed to be my role
Since you left me, baby, but being the life of the party
Seemed to be my role
You see I'm tryin' to find me someone
To save my very soul

Now listen, I stand in the doorway
I watch all of the girls go through
Since you left me, baby, I stand in the doorway
And I watch all of the girls go through
You see I'm tryin' to find me someone
To take my mind off you

(Play the piano for me, Lester)

I'm laughin' and I'm clownin'
To take my mind off you
