    Here's my cover of one of my favorites, "Smile" by Charlie Chaplin!

    "Smile" is a song based on an instrumental theme used in the soundtrack for the 1936 Charlie Chaplin movie Modern Times. Chaplin composed the music, while John Turner and Geoffrey Parsons added the lyrics and title in 1954. In the lyrics, based on lines and themes from the film, the singer is telling the listener to cheer up and that there is always a bright tomorrow, just as long as they smile. "Smile" has become a popular standard since its original use in Chaplin's film.


    Thanks for listening!
    You are amazing!

    LYRICS:

    Smile though your heart is aching
    Smile even though it's breaking.
    When there are clouds in the sky
    you'll get by.

    If you smile through your pain and sorrow
    Smile and maybe tomorrow
    You'll see the sun come shining through
    For you.

    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.

    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.
