Living a Little Laughing a Little
The Spinners Lyrics


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

Laugh as the funny man cries
Though his makeup is smeared, ah ha
Laugh at his comical tears
As he thinks of the years, ah ha, ah ha
Living just a little
Laughing just a little
Ain't easy ah ah ah ah ah
Living just a little
Laughing just a little
Ain't easy (ah ha ha) oh no no

Laugh everyone at the fool
With his heart in his hand, ah ha
Still he can't quite understand
That he's less than a man, ah ha, ah ha

Lost somewhere deep in his shell
There's an ember of pride, ah ha
Watch how he tries hard to hide
That he's dying inside, ah ha, ah ha

Hey we're living just a little
Laughing just a little
Ain't easy sometimes (ah ha ha ha ha) it's hard, sometimes it's hard

Living just a little
Laughing just a little
Ain't easy (ah ha ha ha ha) oh no no no no

Living just a little
Laughing just a little
Ain't easy
Some fool might plan though life gonna change, sometimes

(Living just a little
Laughing just a little
Ain't easy ah ah ah ah ah)

Heeey, hey hey
We're Living just a little, laughing just a little, ain't easy

Sometimes it's hard, sometimes it's hard,

Liiiving just a little, laughing just a little, ain't easy

Naw, naw, no no no

Living just a little, laughing just a little, ain't easy

Souls pouring like rain
On life's ball and chain

Sometii-iiiiimes, yes sir

Whoa-oh-oh-o

Well, Can I say it, can I, can I sing it just a one mo-whoa time,
Whaaoh, it aint easy

No,no, no, no no

Living...in this mean world,
Whoaaaooh it ain't easy

Sometimes, you feel like a clown,
When they turn your world around,
Stii-iillll you gotta smile sometimes

Oh, a won't ya help me, a could ya help me live,
I won't la-a-augh sometimes, Hey-ey-yeah

Aayyy, eyyy-heyyyy-eyyyy

Myyy-ayy-i lord, oh!

Sometimes you feel like you're riding on a cloud, but for crying out loud
Things go wro-ong,
the next minute, next hour, next day, when things ain't the same

When, no no no no no no!
Noooooo it ain't easy

Let me hear ya say it, can I hear ya say it, do it one more time for me

I'm in misery, one day I'll be free,
I'll be smii-lin again, I'll be smilin again,
I'll be smi-iiiii-iiii-lin

Oh! Oh I'm just tryin to do it

Just a little bit more, just a little little little bit, a little bit of lo-oh-ove...

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

Laugh as the funny man cries
Though his makeup is smeared, ah ha
Laugh at his comical tears
As he thinks of the years, ah ha, ah ha

Living just a little
Laughing just a little
Ain't easy
Ah ah ah ah ah
Living just a little
Laughing just a little
Ain't easy
(Ah ha ha) oh no no

Laugh everyone at the fool
With his heart in his hand, ah ha
Still he can't quite understand
That he's less than a man, ah ha, ah ha

Lost somewhere deep in his shell 
There's an ember of pride, ah ha
Watch how he tries hard to hide
That he's dying inside, ah ha, ah ha

Hey we're living just a little
Laughing just a little
Ain't easy 
Ah ha ha ha ha (sometimes it's hard sometimes it's hard)

Living just a little
Laughing just a little
Ain't easy 
Ah ha ha ha ha (oh no no no no)

Living just a little
Laughing just a little
Ain't easy (some fool might plan though life gonna change)
Ah ah ah ah ah

Living just a little (sometimes, yes sir)
Laughing just a little
Ain’t easy (whoa) 
Ah ha ha ha ha (oh can I say it, can I, can I say it just one more time)
Living just a little 
Laughing just a little (oh)
Ain’t easy (it ain’t easy, no no, no no no no) 
Ah ha ha ha ha
Living just a little (living)
Laughing just a little (in this mean world)
Ain’t easy (oh it ain’t easy –sometimes you feel like a clown)
Ah ha ha ha ha
Living just a little (when they turn your world around)
Laughing just a little (still you gotta smile sometimes)
Ain’t easy (oh)
Ah ha ha ha ha (won’t you help me, ah could you help me)
Living just a little (live)
Laughing just a little (I wanna laugh sometimes, yeah)
Ain’t easy (hey)
Ah ha ha ha ha (hey hey)
Living just a little (my) 
Laughing just a little (lord)
Ain’t easy (oh)
Ah ha ha ha ha 
Living just a little (sometimes you feel like you’re riding on a cloud) 
Laughing just a little (and for crying out loud things go wrong)
Ain’t easy (the next minute)
Ah ha ha ha ha (that song is through and things ain’t the same way no no no no no)
Living just a little
Laughing just a little (no)
Ain’t easy (no it ain’t easy)
Ah ha ha ha ha (let me hear you say it, can I hear you say it oh one more time with me)
Living just a little (I’m in misery)
Laughing just a little (one day I’ll be free)
Ain’t easy (I’ll be smiling again I’ll be smiling again)
Ah ha ha ha ha (I’ll be smiling)
Living just a little (oh)
Laughing just a little (oh just trying to do it)
Ain’t easy 
Ah ha ha ha ha 
(Just a little bit y'all, just a little little love, and a little bit of love)
Living just a little
