„Now if there's a smile on my face,
It's only there tryin' to fool the public,
But when it comes down to foolin' you;
Now honey, that's quite a different subject.
But don't let my glad expression
Give you the wrong impression.
Really I'm sad.
I'm sadder than sad.
You're gone and I'm hurtin' so bad.
Like a clown I pretend to be glad.“

—  Smokey Robinson, The Tears of a Clown, written by Smokey Robinson, Stevie Wonder, and Hank Cosby (1970)
