8-beat intro.  Play 4-beats for each cell, reading from left to right.
Just let a smile be your umbrella,
On a rainy, rainy day,
And if your sweetie cries, just tell her,
That a smile will always pay.
Whenever skies are gray, Don`t you worry or fret,
A smile will bring the sunshine, And you`ll never get wet.
So, let a smile be your umbrella,
On a rainy, rainy day.
Listen to Gene Sheldon play "Let A Smile Be Your Umbrella" (mp3)
