With such optimism, energy and unbridled jollity arrayed against him, how could Old Man Depression stand a chance?
A fun number by Billy Cotton's band sung by Alan "Lovely bunch of Coconuts" Breeze...writing credits to the team of Meskill, Rich and O'Flynn.

The song reached a new and enthusiastic generation in the soundtrack of 1988's film, "Who Framed Roger Rabbit?"

SMILE, DARN YA, SMILE
(Charles O'Flynn / Jack Meskill / Max Rich)

Let's all get together with this one thought in mind,
Make this world a better, brighter place.

Tell each bluenose and gloom-chaser you ever find, "Hey there, wipe that frown right off your face!"

"Smile, darn ya, smile!
You know this old world is a great world after all,
Smile, darn ya, smile!
And right away watch lady luck pay you a call.
Things are never black as they are painted,
Time for you and joy to get acquainted.
So make life worthwhile
Come on and smile, darn ya, smile!"
