"THE GREAT PRETENDER" har vist sine hit-kvaliteter gang på gang, først med The Platters i 1955 og senest med Freddy Mercury i 1987. NJS har hentet en del fra The Bands 1974-arrangement i denne melodiøse balladen som kunne høres fra scenen med NJS til utpå 1990-tallet.

The Great Pretender

(Buck Ram)

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 yes, I'm the great pretender

Adrift in a world of my own

I play the game, but to my real shame

You left me to dream all alone

 

Too real is this feeling of make believe

Too real when I feel what my heart can't conceal

 

Oh yes, I'm the great pretender

Just laughing 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
