Smile….Tho’ your heart is aching
Smile… Even tho’ it’s breaking
When there are clouds in the sky
You’ll get by
If you Smile through your fear and sorrow
Smile and maybe tomorrow
You’ll see the sun come shining thru for you.
Light up your face with gladness
Hide ev’ry trace of sadness
Altho’ a tear maybe ever so near
That’s the time you must keep on trying
Smile…What’s the use of crying
You’ll find that life is still worth while
If you’ll just smile.


Listen to the Smile song by Nat King Cole here!
