No matter how much it hurts,

You have to keep a smile on your face,

And keep your head help high.

You have to pretend it doesn't bother you,

Because nobody can know how much you're hurting inside.

Smile away the tears,

Shake off the pain in your legs,

And throw away the rag red-stained with tears.
