The Shadow of a Smile
Graduating from college life
in June of nineteen sixty-five,
We recall in music's spotlight -
The Shadow of Your Smile - top-flight.
Departing from four-year friendships,
Some thought that nothing could eclipse
a love affair, they knew was so right -
Shadows of Your Smile at midnight.
On the world's stage, they’re newcomers
They marched to different drummers;
All but forgotten, tribute’s slight,
the Shadow of Your Smile became trite.
What wistful star may shed some light?
The Shadow of a New Smile might.
