Lyrics

Smilin'

Written By: Karen Zimmer

Smilin’ – words and music by Karen Zimmer

She walked down the street
Smilin’ at everybody she’d meet
And they would stop and say,
“Why are you smilin’ on such a gray day?”
So she would say,
“I’m smilin’ on such a gray day,
‘cause I’m in love.”

Ooooo I’m smilin’ because I’m in love.

He went out at night
And smiled at a man in the middle of a fight
He held his punch to say,
“Why are you smilin’ at me this way?”
So he would say,
“I’m smilin’ at you this way,
‘cause I’m in love.”

Ooooo I’m smilin’ because I’m in love.

Her child yelled in the night
And said “Mommy, dear, I had a fright!”
She smiled, and he screamed,
“Why are you smilin’ when I had a bad dream?”
So she said,
“I’m smilin’ at you in your bed,
Because I love you.”

Ooooo I’m smilin’ at you ‘cause I love you.

I had a terrible day
And I came home to you to see your smilin’ face
And I said to you,
“Why are you smilin’ when I’m feelin’ blue?”
You said, “My boo, I’m smilin’ when you’re feeling blue,
Because I love you.”

Ooooo I’m smilin’ at you ‘cause I love you.
Ooooo I’m smilin’ at you ‘cause I love you.
Ooooo I’m smilin’ at you ‘cause I love you.
