Alright...  
Alright...  
First of all  
 
When you wake up in the evening and the day is shot  
Find yourself complaining about the things you ain't got  
Never goes just the way you want it to  
Cliche of the day, c'est la vie, that's just life  
It ain't easy, it's so tough, it's so easy  
 
(Whatcha gonna do, say, whatcha gonna do)  
Put a smile on your face  
Make the world a better place  
Put a smile on your face  
(Whatcha gonna do, say, whatcha gonna do)  
Put a smile on your face  
Make the world a better place  
Put a smile on your face  
(Whatcha gonna do, say, whatcha gonna do)  
 
And another thing  
You can say I'm a dreamer and you thinks it's all cool  
Preaching about the better life I learned in school  
But you get what you give in this life that we live  
And all that you do will come back to you  
 
Yo  
When thing's isn't right, there's not need to fight-a  
(?), and everything nice (?) Please be polite even when you're hurting  
Don't forget to smile  
Give love to our nation, big or small  
When you do good, you'll get your reward  
United with undivided we fall  
Put a smile on your face and greet one and all  
 
Life, it ain't easy, oh it's so tough, it ain't easy  
 
People love you when you smile  
And hate you when it's through  
Lots of happiness, (?) we are wishing you  
If you come from Jamaica or Honolulu, yeah  
Keep a smile on your face  
I'll see the good that you do, (?)  
Smile (smile), and everything will be fine  
Love it when you smile, you look beautiful like that  
(?), Your dimples are so cute, hahah  
I love the happiness and..smile
