Mariah Carey - Clown

Yeah, yeah
I guess your momma never told you
That what goes around comes back around

I should've left it at, how ya doing?
I should've left it at I like your music too, and
I should've never called you back when you pursued me
I should've never given you my fucking two way
I should've never listened to your woeful stories
The ones I'm sure you told a thousand times before me
You should've never intimated we were lovers
When you know very well we never even touched each other

Who's gonna love you when it all falls down, and
Who's gonna love you when your bankroll runs out?
Who's gonna care when the novelty's over?
When the star of the show isn't you anymore?
Nobody cares when the tears of a clown fall down
I guess your momma never told you that what comes around comes back around
Nobody cares when the tears of a clown fall down
I guess your momma never told you that what comes around comes back around

I gotta break it to ya delicately, dummy
Taking my G5 twenty minutes wasn't nothing
But I guess you wouldn't know that's the way I roll
Consequently now your ego's fully overblown
You don't want the world to know that you're just a puppet show
And the little boy inside often sits at home alone
And cries, cries, cries, cries (Who's gonna love you when it all falls down, and)

Who's gonna love you when your bankroll runs out?
Who's gonna care when the novelty's over?
When the star of the show isn't you anymore

Your pain is so deep rooted (Nobody)
What will your life become?
Sure you hide it but you're lost and lonesome
Still just a frail shook one

(Tell me who's gonna love you?)
Who's gonna love you when it all falls down, and
(I'd like to know)
Who's gonna love you when your bankroll runs out?
Who's gonna care when the novelty's over?
When the star of the show isn't you anymore (Who'll still be there? Nobody, nobody, nobody!)
Nobody cares when the tears of a clown fall down (Nobody baby)
Oh he's in the school yeah
Nobody cares when the tears of a clown fall down
I guess your momma never told you (Yes, you better think twice)
That what goes around comes back around

Who's gonna love you when it all falls down and (Who's gonna care?)
Who's gonna love you when your bankroll runs out? (The jokes on you)
Who's gonna care when the novelty's over? (Who's making your move)
When the star of the show isn't you anymore
Nobody cares when the tears of a clown fall down (You can keep your little secret though)
I guess your momma never told you
That what goes around comes back around
Nobody cares when the tears of a clown fall down (You're no superhero)
I guess your momma never told you
That what goes around comes back around
