[text from the actual song at Moldejazz]

Smile when your heart is aching
Smile even though itís breaking
When there are clouds in the sky, youíll get by
Smile through your tears and sorrow
Smile and maybe tomorrow
Youíll see the sun come shining through to you

Light up your face with gladness
Hide every trace of sadness
Even a tear may be ever so near
Thatís the time you must keep on trying
Smile, whatís the use in crying?
Youíll see the sun come shining through
If you just smile

<instrumental interlude>

Smile when your heart is aching
Smile even though itís breaking
When there are clouds in the sky, youíll get by
Smile through tears and sorrow
Smile maybe tomorrow
Youíll see the sun come shining through to you

Light up your face with gladness
Hide every trace with sadness
Even a tear may be ever so near
Thatís the time you must keep on trying
Smile, whatís the use of crying?
Youíll see that life is still worthwhile
If you just smile
