LAUGHING BOY
Mary Wells


Laughing Boy (ha ha ha ha ha)

That's what they used to call you

Before you found a new love to take my place

(Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha)

Laughing Boy (ha ha ha ha ha)

That's what they used to call you

You always wore a smile upon your face

(Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha)

But as I look at you now, I know that somehow

The smile you're wearing is untrue

Laughing Boy (Laughing Boy), I think you're blue


Your new love (your new love)

She really must have hurt you

She really must have filled your heart with pain

'Cause I know you well (know you well)

And you could never fool me

I know that somehow you're not the same

(La la la la la la la la)

As I look at you now, I know that somehow

When you say you're happy, you're lying

Laughing Boy (Laughing Boy), I believe you've been crying


(instrumental)


(La la la la la la la la)

Don't you know that it's true, I still love you

Just as much as I did before

So Laughing Boy (come on home)

Come on home, Laughing Boy (come on home)

Come on home, Laughing Boy (come on home)

And smile once more
