Smiling Faces Sometimes

By Joan Osborne



Smiling faces sometimes pretend to be your friend
Smiling faces show no traces of the evil that lurks within


Smiling faces, smiling faces sometimes

They don't tell the truth, huh

Smiling faces, smiling faces
Tell lies and I got proof




The truth is in the eyes

Cause the eyes don't lie, amen

Remember a smile is just
A frown turned upside down


My friend let me tell you

Smiling faces, smiling faces sometimes

They don't tell the truth, huh

Smiling faces, smiling faces


Tell lies and I got proof
Beware, beware of the handshake

That hides the snake


I'm telling you beware
Beware of the pat on the back

It just might hold you back
Jealousy (Jealousy)

Misery (Misery)


Envy



I tell you, you can't see behind smiling faces

Smiling faces sometimes they don't tell the truth


Smiling faces, smiling faces
Tell lies and I got proof

Smiling faces, smiling faces sometimes

They don't tell the truth

Smiling faces, smiling faces
Tell lies and I got proof

(Smiling faces, smiling faces sometimes)(2 x's)



I'm telling you beware, beware of the handshake
That hides the snake



Listen to me now,beware

Beware of that pat on the back
It just might hold you back


Smiling faces, smiling faces sometimes

They don't tell the truth

Smiling faces, smiling faces

Tell lies and I got proof



Your enemy won't do you no harm

Cause you'll know where he's coming from
Don't let the handshake and the smile fool ya


Take my advice I'm only try' to school ya
