There are many troubles that will burst like bubbles,
There are many shadows that will disappear;
When you learn to meet them, with a smile to greet them,
For a smile is better than a frown or tear.
Tho' the world forsake you, joy will overtake you,
Hope will soon awake you, if you smile today;
Don't parade yur sorrow, wait until tomorrow,
For your joy and hope will drive the clouds away.
When the clouds are raining, don't begin complaining,
What the earth is gaining should not make you sad;
Do not be a fretter, smiling is much better,
And a smile will help to make the whole world glad.
You can smile when you can't say a word,
You can smile when you cannot be heard;
You can smile when it's cloudy or fair,
You can smile anytime, anywhere.
