Smile, Pretty Lady Smile

Smile, pretty lady smile
Like you've never washed
Your cheeks with teardrop.
Smile, pretty lady smile
Like the birds still sing
The same old song.

The evening has never been
So dark, as it is today
The colourful crowd around
Is gone.
The rain has washed you alone
Left you sad deep inside
The smile, my lady
Is gone.

Smile, pretty lady smile
Your eyes are drenched in pain
Smile, pretty lady smile
Come dance with me in the rain.
