Smile, Son, Smile 'NR'

Smile, son, smile
Smile, son, please.
I can not smile daddy,
I can not smile cheese.

Smile, son, smile
Smile for a pound.
I can not smile daddy
I can not make a sound.

Smile, son, smile
Smile, son, dear.
I can not smile daddy,
I cannot smile clear.

Smile, son, smile
Smile, for a pound.
I can not smile daddy, 
I can not make a sound.
