Skirmish prompt: Smiles

This made me happy just writing it. I heard it as a musical show time in my head but could also hear it as a happy little uke song — so open to any ideas!

Lyrics: 

sometimes it is raining
and dark clouds fill the sky
sometimes there are blizzards
that make you want to cry

and sometimes if feels
there is little you can do
but, honey, do one one thing
that will help you beat the blues ...

L
and smile!

C
smile when you wake up
so your sun will start to shine
smile as you fall asleep
so you will wake up feeling fine
smile when you are happy
smile whenever you can
smile can spread happiness
all throughout the land

V2
sometimes it is lonely
when nothing goes your way
sometimes there are people
that twist everything you say

and sometimes if feels
the world is out of control
but, honey, there are the times
that you have got to let go...

L
and smile!

C
smile when you wake up
so your sun will start to shine
smile as you fall asleep
so you will wake up feeling fine
smile when you are happy
smile whenever you can
smile can spread happiness
all throughout the land

B
smiles are contagious
they can spread so fast
smiles are tenacious
they can come and last
smiles are courageous
they can change the past
so dare to be audacious
let your smile be cast

L
and smile!

C
smile when you wake up
so your sun will start to shine
smile as you fall asleep
so you will wake up feeling fine
smile when you are happy
smile whenever you can
smile can spread happiness
all throughout the land



Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.
