Smile :)

Interesting fact, Vevey in Switzerland became the village where the great Charlie Chaplin decided to settle down with his wife after being denied entry into the US (due to McCarthyism).  Living in Switzerland had a positive effect on the great actor, director and filmmaker who had four children, all born in Switzerland.  They are both buried near the village of Corsier and their mansion is currently planned to become a Charlie Chaplin museum and archive in the future.  Another interesting fact, he wrote one of the most heart warming songs, which has been performed by the most amazing crooners of our times.  The song is simply called Smile, I’m sure you’ve heard it once or twice 🙂

SMILE by Charlie Chaplin

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 fear and sorrow,
Smile and maybe tomorrow,
You’ll see the sun come shining through,
For you.

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.

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.
