Costume Makes The Clown Lyrics

by Shakira

Told you I felt lucky with my
Humble breasts, well, I don't
Said that I was sure the world was
Gonna change, well, I'm not

Before I didn't give a damn 'bout
What they say, but I do
Promised that I'll never ever lie to you

So you can help
Taking the make up off my face
Before I forget my own features

I'm not here to let you down
But the costume makes the clown
It's just lashing out on me, don't be so hard
Don't be so hard on this
It's your turn now to cheat on me

Promises I made to you went down the sink
Really hope, I haven't harmed your self esteem
I'm not a virgin but I'm not the whore you think
And I don't always smell like strawberries and cream

So you can help
Taking the make up off my face
Before I forget who I am now

'Cause, I'm not here to let you down
But the costume makes the clown
It's just life's anatomy, don't be so hard
Don't be so hard on this
It's your turn now, your turn now

I'm not here to let you down
But the costume makes the clown
It's just life's anatomy, don't be so hard

Don't be so hard on this
It's your turn now
Your turn now to cheat on me
