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
When he smiled I realised, I’d passed it on to him.
I thought about that smile, Then realised 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!
