(feat. Jane Birkin)

Don't stare at your face with your nose out of place
At the wrinkles where zits used to be
And remember that smiling uses less muscles
And frowning just makes you look ugly

So smile, smile
And the whole world will smile with you
So smile, Baby, smile
If the whole world just had a clue

Don't mess with your man when he's selling you grams
He would kill you for less and then smile
And don't curse at a whore as you open the door
Cos' your service wont be with a smile

So smile, smile
And the whole world smiles with you
And smile, Baby, smile
If the whole world just had a clue

Don't sneer at your doctor or Gamble and proctor
Cos' they're just pawns in the game

The perfect prescription is one that you're given
It's filled out in Jesus' name

Don't be scared of your preacher cos' hes just a leech
He's too busy cruising your ass

There's a verse in the Bible
That says we're all liable
For everything that comes to pass

So smile, smile
And the whole world smiles with you
So smile, Baby, smile
If the whole world just had a clue
So smile, smile
Smile, smile
Smile, smile
