S M I L E
(Artist Nat king Cole, words by John Turner and Geoffrey Parsons)
Smile when your heart is aching,
smile even though it is breaking.
When there are clouds in the sky
you’ll get by, if you smile through
your fear and sorrows.
Smile and maybe tomorrow you
see the sun come shinning through
Light up your face with gladness,
hide any trace of sadness,
although our tears be ever so near…
that’s the time you must
keep on trying.
Smile, what’s the use of crying?
You’ll find life is still worth while if
you just smile.
