Say Cheese and Smile smile
(Neil Cotton)


Bad attitudes and punctured tires
Hold you back until they’re changed
Kicking tires just gets you wired
Laugh at life helps on the way

Don’t be a pebble in a shoe
It inflames your soul
Or a bad note in a tune
It ruins the groove
Like your photo’s being taken
Say cheese and smile
Say cheese and smile

One trick works when you're down
Kick butt gets your tail waggin’
Mopin’ around face like a hound
Never makes things happen

Don’t be a pebble in a shoe
It inflames your soul
Or a bad note in a tune
It ruins the groove
Like your photo’s being taken
Say cheese and smile
Say cheese and smile

B~
Not everyone believes the Science
Some actually call it fake
When the body gets to movin’
Feel good is the take away

Don’t be a pebble in a shoe
It inflames your soul
Or a bad note in a tune
It ruins the groove
Like your photo’s being taken
Say cheese and smile
Say cheese and smile

**********************************************

Bad attitudes and punctured tires
Hold you back until they’re changed
Kicking tires just gets you wired
Laugh at life there’s lots to gain

Don’t be a pebble in a shoe
It inflames your soul
Or a bad note in a tune
It will ruin the groove
Pretend your picture’s being taken
Say cheese and smile
Say cheese and smile

Mopin’ around face like a hound
Never did make good things happen
One trick works when you are down
Shake butt gets your tail waggin’

Don’t be a pebble in a shoe
It inflames your soul
Or a bad note in a tune
It will ruin the groove
Pretend your picture’s being taken
Say cheese and smile
Say cheese and smile

B~
Not everyone believes in Science
Some actually call it fake
But when the body gets movin’
Feeling good’s the take away

Don’t be a pebble in a shoe
It inflames your soul
Or a bad note in a tune
It will ruin the groove
Pretend your picture’s being taken
Say cheese and smile
Say cheese and smile

Bad attitudes are punctured tires
Holding you back until they’re changed
Kicking stones just gets you wired
Flash a smile there's lots to gain

Like a pebble in a shoe
Inflaming your soul
No one likes a wet sack
Damp’ning the mood
By takin’ action your day starts changin’
Pretend you’re havin’ your picture taken… smile.

Mopin’ ‘round face like a hound
Is only cute on a dog
Get that tail waggin’ around
Crawl out of that hollow log

Like a pebble in a shoe
Inflaming your soul
No one likes a wet sack
Damp’ning the mood
By takin’ action your day starts changin’
Pretend you’re havin’ your picture taken… smile.

Bad attitudes are flat tires
Holding you back until they’re changed
Kicking stones just gets you wired
Flash a smile and don’t complain

Like a pebble in a shoe
Inflaming your soul
No one wants a wet rag
Damp’ning the mood
By takin’ action things start changin’
It's like havin' your picture taken… smile.

Mopin’ ‘round face like a hound
Is only cute on your dog
Get that tail waggin’ around
Drag your butt off of that log

Like a pebble in a shoe
Inflaming your soul
No one wants a wet rag
Damp’ning the mood
By takin’ action things start changin’
Just like wh’n having your picture taken… smile.

This is a story about someone who is not emotionally in sync and being encouraged to find positive aspects to whatever setbacks occur. I am trying to do that in my own life today as I was on the food service app all day Saturday and didn't get any delivery calls. Don't know what the problem was as I should have had plenty. Just an example.

Yeah I agree no point in going around with a face suitable for receiving bad news. Or a face like a smacked ass.

I was scratching my head trying to remember "wet sack" as an expression. I had wet blanket and wet hen. I figure it must be some of that Georgetown parlez! confused smile

so true...sometimes it's difficult if true depression is the cause.
