Smile

You say you must wear a frown the whole day
Because the world is in such a mess
You say you feel that it’s the least you can do
Solidarity shown with those who have less

Come on and smile smile for me
Break your face open space no disgrace
Come on and smile…

I’ll tell you friend you’re not helping anybody
With your long grey face and your knotted brow
The hungry and poor the outcast and the lonely
Need your miserable mug like a broken plough

Come on and smile smile for me
Make my day what d’you say don’t delay
Come on and smile…

Live your life yes and give your life yes and
Don’t go closing your eyes
Fight for justice and work for peace
But remember joy is the price

Come on and smile smile for me
Don’t be shy let it fly give it a try
Come on and smile smile for me
Now’s the time the perfect clime
It is no crime
For you to smile…
