Smile though your heart is aching
                
Smile even though 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 through for you

               Light up your face with gladness
                 Hide every trace of sadness
                     Although a tear may be 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 worthwhile
                                                                                   If you just
smile
