Schwa Lyrics

Smile and Sing

Lyricist: Dave Katz
Vocalist: Dave Katz
Way back in '84, I left Ohio for
The Golden State to live out my own dreams
What I didn't know back then is things don't always happen when
You want them to, or so it seemed

Well I recall the days, 3 jobs and shitty pay
When I had nothing much at all
Through the good and bad, you know I always had
A place I can embrace where I can fall

I still try to spread my wings. Open up to everything
Make the most of life and everything it brings.
Just smile and sing

As long as I can hear the sound, touch the ground, move around
Everything will be all right
As long as I can find my way to live each dary and have my say
Everything will be all right
As long as I can still be strong, get along, sing a song
Everything will be all right

It's been a long, long time. I'm still tryin' to find
A way throughout my life on this old earth
After everything, it's up to me to bring
Unto myself, good will and all it's worth.

I've come a long, long way, from 3 jobs and shitty pay
A brighter light has shined anew
I've been a lucky man, I'll give back all I can
To you, and you, and you, and you all too.
