John Hiatt — Living A Little, Laughing A Little lyrics

Laugh everyone at the clown
He's the best one in town, ummm ummm
Ride on his merry-go-round
Spinning faster than sound
Uuuuh huh uuuuh huh

Laugh as the funny man cries
Though his makeup is smeared
Uuuuh huuuh
Laugh at his funny pictures
As he [paints out the years? ]
Uuuuh huh uuuuh huh

Livin' just a little
Laughing just a little
Ain't easy, uuuuuh huuuuh

Livin' just a little
Laughing just a little
Ain't easy

Laugh everyone at the fool with his heart in his hand
Uuuuh huuuh
Mmmmm, he can't quite understand that he's less than a man
Uuuuh huuuh uuuuh huuuh

[? ] there's an ember of pride
Uuuuh huuuh
Watch how he tries hard to hide that he's dying inside
Uuuuh huuuh
Uuuuh huuuh

Livin' just a little
Laughing just a little
Ain't easy, uuuuuh huuuuh

Livin' just a little
Laughing just a little
Ain't easy

Livin' just a little
Laughing just a little
Ain't easy, uuuuuh huuuuh

Livin' just a little
Laughing just a little
Ain't easy
