Lyrics

(1) Smiling is infectious,
you catch it like the flu,
When someone smiled at me today,
I started smiling too.

I passed around the corner
and someone saw my grin.
When he smiled I realized
I'd passed it on to him.

(Chorus)
Everybody smile! Everybody smile!
I think you're going to find that it's worthwhile!
Smile at your neighbor, smile at your friend,
smile at everybody so the smiling never ends!


(2) I thought about that smile,
then I realized its worth.
A single smile, just like mine
could travel round the earth.

So, if you feel a smile begin,
don't leave it undetected.
Let's start an epidemic quick,
and get the world infected!

(Chorus)
