Smile

Hook
Whatever you do, just don't forget to smile.
However you feel, just don't forget to smile.
Whatever you do just, don't forget to smile.
Through the pain, through it all, don't forget to smile.

Verse1
Don't forget to smile, a smile can go a long way. I woke up today, not feeling the best way. Thinking bout my cuzin who passed away. A couple years ago but it feels like yesterday. We live to die, so it's expected, but still hurts. Are selfish ways can't endure the pain, here I remain. Your birthday coming it's still same. I thought it would change. The celebration of the day but it still remains. I want to call up your pop, call up your mom. Call up your brother, call up your sister see how they doing. Right now on I envision, visions of all us chillin. On your stoop, in the car, of all us winning. All us living, if I got it, we all got it, all us get it. Clothes well-fitted, paint just dripping, what you sippin? What you sippin cuz?

We old enough now to legally, get in them clubs, get in them bars. We look up to you, we still do, you shine like a star. My vibes a little off, im feeling angry and pissed off. Skip sad, I'm just mad and ready to go off. Emotions I was feeling guess not hard to see. Body language, facial expression, something they see. Cause some lady I don't know then comes up to me. Start talking and basically she says this me.

Hook (2x)
Whatever you do, just don't forget to smile.
However you feel, just don't forget to smile.
Whatever you do just, don't forget to smile.
Through the pain, through it all, don't forget to smile.

Verse2
It made me think about the good times we had. Some crazy but still I smile and may laugh.
I remember JJ calling my phone, telling me you're trying to kill him. He was about to knock at your door, then you start shooting. Sometimes you was trip pin, really cuz you was Trippin. But crazy, tripping and flipping you, what I am missing.
No matter what you do, I know that you love him to death. You love Sable too, that's why her boyfriend kept getting threats. Cuz you a mess, too know you, i know that i'm truly blessed. And those who know you, know what I mean and why Express, with Passion. I know you in Heaven in fact, watching my back, but the thought of you, gets me upset.

Hook (2x)
Whatever you do, just don't forget to smile.

Verse3
Sometimes it feels you talking to me. It sound so clear at times, like you right here. I try to think what you would say if you could see me now. My life now, this is how I think you sound. Tell man up lil nigga, don't shed tear for me, I'm right here. Still the beast that show no fear. You can do better, you could be stronger, you gotta stay focused. I'm walking on clouds up here, know that I'm golden. No stress here, no reason to feel depressed here. I lost a few pounds, so know that I'm flexing. I'm blessed yea,
No reason to be hostile.
I miss all of y'all, so for me y'all gotta smile.
