Lyrics to "The Great Pretender" song by The Platters: Oh-oh, yes I'm the great pretender Pretending that I'm doing well My need is such I pretend too much. Oh-oh, yes I'm the great pretender Pretending that I'm doing well My need is such I pretend too much I'm lonely but no one can tell. Oh-oh, yes I'm the great pretender Adrift in a world of my own I've played the game but to my real shame You've left me to grieve all alone. Too real is this feeling of make-believe Too real when I feel what my heart can't conceal. Yes, I'm the great pretender Just laughin' and gay like a clown I seem to be what I'm not, you see I'm wearing my heart like a crown Pretending that you're still around
