8-beat intro.  Play 4-beats for each cell, reading from left to right.
I saw a blind man, he was a kind man,
Helping a fellow along,
One could not see, one could not walk,
But they both were humming this song;
When You're Smiling, when you're smiling,
The whole world smiles with you.
When you're laughing, when you're laughing,
The sun comes shining thru,
But when you're crying you bring on the rain,
So stop your sighing, be happy again.
Keep on smiling 'cause when you're smilling,
The whole world smiles with you.
