Lyrics[edit | edit source]

smiley, where have you been?
smiley, it's such a sin to say
you're gonna dream your life away

knew a man who couldn't make it
on a bended knee
all his friends were simple prophets
only if you bleed
and he'll bleed
on his knees

smiley, where have you been?
smiley, it's such a sin to say
you're gonna dream your life away

your love won't change
come back to stay
smiley, smiley, smiley, smiley
smiley, smiley, smiley, smiley

and you
if i'm smilin'
then i'm tryin'
'cause i'm smilin'
