When you're blue and things go wrong with you,
Don't try to share it, grin and bear it,
And your dreams are sure to come true;
When you're sad,
Just make believe you're glad,
And all the world will smile with you.
Have smile for ev'ry one you meet,
And ev'ry one will have a smile for you.
Ev'ry mile along lif'e busy street
Is filled with friendship true.
Each tomorrow Brings new sorrow,
So why borrow tears?
The thing to do is have a smile
For ev'ry one you meet,
And they will have a smile for you. you.
When you fear the days because they're drear,
Don't you regret it, just forget it,
And the sun is sure to appear;
Pride and pluck,
Will always bring good luck,
So keep on smiling while you're here.
