Don't Laugh Now

This song is by Ray Stevens and appears on the album Don't Laugh Now (1982).

We've known each other since we were in school. You always thought I was a crazy fool. 'Guess everyone thinks I'm quite a clown, yeah, the life of the party, fun to have around. You won't believe I'm serious with what I'm about to say. I know it's out of character for me to act this way, but...(start singing the chorus:)

I just had to let you know. Don't Laugh Now, wait'll I go. Don't Laugh Now, wait'll I go.

You had a lot of sweethearts and I watched you love 'em. You had a lot of friends and I was just one of 'em. Someone to pick you up when love would go wrong. Help you through the rough times when you were all alone. All those many nights I held you and you never knew what I was feeling in my deepest heart for you. A cornball, paliachhi, who has no right to say the foolish words I blurted out today...(start singing the chorus again)
