Smile

If you want to change your world, open up your heart and smile.

Lower your defenses, cast away your fears and smile!

It's the one thing you can say, the one thing you can do that all creatures understand.

Just release one in a crowd and watch it spread across the land!

Smile, and show the world you care.  

Smile, and blow away despair!

It's as warm as the rising sun!

As charged as a battle won!

It's a hug that never ends!

It can mend a wounded soul, turns enemies into friends!

Smile, even when you're low.  

Smile, and let your love overflow!

And through your darkest days,

That smile will light your way,

Like a beacon along the shore,

Reflected from the smiles of those you've shined before!

Smile! Just smile!

Smile! Go ahead and smile!

If you want to change the world, open up your heart and smile.
