just smile, that's what they say
if i smile it will take all the pain away

well i'm smiling now and still there's pain
i know i find, i have only myself to blame

but there's a smile here and there's a smile there
don't look now, its not polite to stare

trust me in this, i'm happy here
no more frowns, my life is clear

there will always be a little sadness around
but look to the happiness that abounds

i've found my life, my love, my friend
i see and feel my heart is on the mend

just smile, thats what they say
well i smiled and it really did take the pain away

...just smile...
