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

for you.

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.
