Smile All You Soupers



Hey all you Soupers Did you take my advice Smile at the world Always try to be nice Even when people Are rude and obnoxious Pretend you don't notice Don't cause a big ruckus The world is searching For people like us To show them the way This way is a must We sure can survive The damage that's done It isn't too late Send the blues on the run To start let's abolish All the wars and strife We weren't meant for that Let clean up our life We can start at home A great place to start More harmony there Is good for the heart Tell your loved ones How much they all mean You'll love their reaction They'll burst at the seams In closing I'll send you Big hugs so humongous You'll think I'm a bear My hugs so rambunctious Hey all you Soupers Did you take my advice Smile at the world Always try to be nice © Jack Ellison 2013

    Dragon went down to the lake to clean out the boat with the penguins... He's a bit literal... He's telling everyone if they don't smile he'll puff up and smoke them... Fortunately, we're all pretty smilable... except me before my coffee... Stop that Dragon... I'm moving... The coffee's coming... be patient... Ouch... Honestly... Silly Dragon!

    LOL The more ya smile... the less it will hurt! However I must warn you, there's a danger of your face freezing in that supersillious position. "supersillious"... is that a word??? Have a great day, my good friend!
