Smile

Bob Hinrichs 

* intro (see footnote)


Havin' fun

On the One

Gimme something I can sink into

He's the One-Megaton

Mr. Funky Monkey, we love you!

yes we do


and he's the one 

(yeah he's the one)

who's getting down

yeah he's the one

creating his landscapes

made of sound

so put your hand in my hand

do you think you can stand

rising high like a sun

shining through everyone

well you can yes you can

I can show you how to rock in style

You smile

Put your hand on the dial

And smile

You know you do it in style

she's the one

(she is the one)

who's bathed in light

yeah she's the one

who was sent up through the night

she says...

put your hand in my hand

do you think you can stand

rising high like a sun

shining through everyone

well you can yes you can

I can show you how to fly in style

Smile

Put your hand on the dial

And smile

Come walk a miracle mile


* The voice in the beginning of “Smile” is that of Russell Kirk, from a lecture on America's Decadence . Here is the full text: "It appears to me ladies and gentlemen that our culture labors in an advanced state of decadence. What many people mistake for the triumph of our culture actually consists of forces that are disintegrating our culture. The vaulted democratic freedom of liberal society in reality is servitude to appetites and illusions that attack religious belief, that destroy community through excessive centralization and urbanization and efface life-giving tradition."
