Although it's kind of a sad song, I really love it.
Smile though your heart is achingSmile even though it's breakingWhen there are clouds in the sky, you'll get byIf you smile through your fear and sorrowSmile and maybe tomorrowYou'll see the sun come shining through for you
Light up your face with gladnessHide every trace of sadnessAlthough a tear may be ever so nearThat's the time you must keep on tryingSmile, what's the use of crying?You'll find that life is still worthwhileIf you just smileThat's the time you must keep on tryingSmile, what's the use of crying?You'll find that life is still worthwhileIf you just smile
"Smile" is a song based on an instrumental theme used in the soundtrack for Charlie Chaplin's 1936 film Modern Times. Chaplin composed the music, inspired by Puccini's Tosca. John Turner and Geoffrey Parsons added the lyrics and title in 1954. In the lyrics, based on lines and themes from the film, the singer is telling the listener to cheer up and that there is always a bright tomorrow, just as long as they smile."Smile" has become a popular standard since its original use in Chaplin's film and has been recorded by numerous artists. The song was also recorded by Jimmy Durante as part of his album Jackie Barnett Presents Hello Young Lovers. His version is part of the soundtrack to the 2019 film Joker, starring Joaquin Phoenix and Robert De Niro.
Judy Garland sang a version of "Smile" on The Ed Sullivan Show in 1963.
The song was included in the soundtrack of Chaplin's 1992 biographical film, as covered by its lead actor Robert Downey Jr.
