Smile

Filed under: Main — melfabro @ 10:37 am

I remember growing up watching re-runs of Charlie Chaplin movies and The Three Stooges ( I’m not that old though LOL )

“Smile” was the theme music for Chaplin last silent picture ‘Modern Times’ in 1936 composed by Chaplin himself. It became officially ‘Smile’ when John Turner and Geoffrey Parsons added lyrics to Chaplin’s composition in 1954. Nat ‘King’ Cole recorded the song and it became a hit! ‘Smile’ reminds us about the meaning of a smile in every life, in every moment, even when life bites, even when we feel blue… it’s hard, but we can try… to smile

Smile though your heart is aching
Smile even though its breaking
When there are clouds in the sky, you’ll get by
If you smile with your fear and sorrow
Smile and maybe tomorrow
You’ll find that life is still worthwhile

If you just
Light up your face with gladness
Hide every trace of sadness
Although a tear may be ever so near
That’s the time you must keep on trying
Smile, what’s the use of crying?
You’ll find that life is still worthwhile

If you just
Smile though your heart is aching
Smile even though its breaking
When there are clouds in the sky, you’ll get by
If you smile through your fear and sorrow
Smile and maybe tomorrow
You’ll find that life is still worthwhile
If you just smile

that’s the time you must keep on trying
Smile, what’s the use of crying?
You’ll find that life is still worthwhile
If you just smile

“A day without a laugh is a wasted day.” – Charles Chaplin
