Smiles Are Free

Been feeling a bit down lately Weather's a factor but it's more than that Seems my upbeat manner is starting to sag The world's in a mess, a very sad fact It's not unusual, been like this forever It's been the human condition since year one We expect if everyone tries extra hard We once again will make life fun A bunch of dreamers, that's what we are But dreaming sure won't make it so As hard as we try, it's the human condition What else can we do, I dunno Perhaps if we wake up with a smile on our face And live in our own little world It surely won't be a revolutionary approach But will keep life from being unfurled

Jack, I believe it starts with a smile on our face! At my age, I've decided I have a limited amount of time to dwell on the problems. I've passed them on to the next generation. So, I am going to have a delightful time every day until I have no more days!
