"Smile though your heart is aching
Smile even though it's breaking.
When there are clouds in the sky
you'll get by.
If you smile through your pain and sorrow
Smile and maybe tomorrow
You'll see the sun come shining through
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 trying
Smile, what's the use of crying.
You'll find that life is still worthwhile-
If you just smile."
(Music by Charlie Chaplin, originally composed for the movie Modern Times (1936), lyrics added later (1954) by John Turner and Geoffrey Parsons.)
So, now, I dare anyone to argue that the old standards just aren't relevant to today's pop-culture generations….
