Verse:
I saw a blind man, he was a kind man,
Help -ing a fel-low a -long,
One could not see, one could not walk,
But they both were hum-ming this song;
 
Chorus:
When You're Smil -ing, when you're smil -ing,
The whole world smiles with you.
When you're laugh -ing, when you're laugh -ing,
The sun comes shin -ing thru,
But when you're cry -ing you bring on the rain,
So stop your sigh -ing, be hap -py a -gain.
Keep on smil -ing 'cause when you're smil -ling,
The whole world smiles with you.
