The Best of British - Perry Como 1977

Smile, though your heart is aching, smile, even though it's breaking!
When there are clouds in the sky, you'll get by! Perry Como ~ Mr. Saturday Night!
If you smile through your fear an' 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 tryin', smile, what's the use of cryin' ?
you'll find that life is still worthwhile, if you'll just smile!
< instrumental break > 
That's the time you must keep on tryin', 
smile, what's the use of cryin' ?
you'll find that life is still worthwhile, 
if you'll just smile!
