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 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’ll just smile.
