Back Cover Notes ...The likable youngster zoomed into public recognition with a tender ballad early in 1964 -- a beautiful composition of his own entitled, “See the Funny Little Clown” -- and everyone in show business has been convinced via his unique stylings and his distinctive delivery that Goldsboro is here to stay at the top for a long, long time. ...”THE BOBBY GOLDSBORO ALBUM” is the first of what is certain to be a long and best-selling series of albums for this superb new young star.
Some United Artists Records promotional advertisements use the title, “Introducing Bobby Goldsboro.” Bobby’s January 18th birthday is mistakenly listed as January 15th on the back cover.
WITH PEN IN HAND The Songwriting of Bobby Goldsboro
See the funny little clown, he’s hiding behind a smile They all think he’s laughing, but I know he’s really crying all the while How his heart is aching, how his heart is breaking, on the inside But he keeps laughing on the outside - “See the Funny Little Clown” Take your little heart, tear it all apart Make the teardrops fall from your eyes And you’ll know how I feel when he holds you, whenever he holds you - "Whenever He Holds You"
