Smile, though your heart is aching - Goodbye Michael Jackson

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
With your fear and sorrow
Smile and maybe tomorrow
You'll find that life is still worthwhile
If you just...



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, 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 fear and sorrow
Smile and maybe tomorrow
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




Wikipedia history ...
"Smile" is a pop song, originally used as an instrumental theme in the soundtrack for the 1936 Charlie Chaplin movie Modern Times. Chaplin composed the music, while the words were written by John Turner and Geoffrey Parsons. In the lyrics, the singer is telling the listener to cheer up and that there is always a bright tomorrow, just as long as they smile.
Michael Jackson covered this song on his 1995 double album HIStory: Past, Present and Future, Book I. During the final concerts of Jackson's HIStory World Tour, it was sung and dedicated to Princess Diana.
Jermaine Jackson sang Smile at his brother Michael's memorial service on July 7, 2009 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
