"Shut Up And Smile" as written by and Lauren/edwards Christy....
Its not the end of the world
In fact its not even the end of the summer
But thank god the tv is on
Cause there's no way we could know
Anything that's goin' down
Or how were supposed to be feeling about it
I can't tell you how much I wish we could shut up and smile, yeah

Sail around the world and tell them all to keep singing it
La la la la la la
All we needs a harmony and we?ll convince the world to sing
La la la la la la
Throw your arms around someone (throw your arms around someone)
Maybe spread a little love
I know it sounds a little dumb (or maybe I'm a little drunk)
But all we need is some ice cream and a hug

Take a good look around
Does life really suck
Are we just complaining
I hope that this mic is on (testing 1, 2)
Cause I'm on a roll here
I hope this is making some sense
I hope that you'll throw up your hands and sing it
And tell all the haters that they should just shut up and smile, yeah

Sail around the world and tell them all to keep singing it
La la la la la la
All we needs a harmony and we?ll convince the world to sing
La la la la la la
Throw your arms around someone (throw your arms around someone)
Maybe spread a little love
I know it sounds a little dumb (or maybe I'm a little drunk)
But all we need is some ice cream

All we need is love and beer
And old school metal and holiday cheer
To be happy
(All you need is someone near)
Like Ben and Jerry
(to hold you close and pretend that they care)

Can we all just, get along now
We found something that we all have in common now
We can hold hands, do keg stands
Water skiing sounds great to me now

Sail around the world and tell them all to keep singing it
La la la la la la
All we needs a harmony and we?ll convince the world to sing
La la la la la la
Throw your arms around someone (throw your arms around someone)
Maybe spread a little love
I know it sounds a little dumb (or maybe we?re a little drunk)
But all we need is some ice cream and a hug

(All we need is love and beer)
All we need is some ice cream and a hug
All we need is some ice cream and a hug
All we need is some ice cream and a hug

    General CommentI'm guessing that most of Bowling for Soups music was written while intoxicated. I mean seriously, they drunk when I saw them live.. I just Love them!!

    General Commenti was listening to this song and my dad came in and asked if this was the beatles because the line "all you need is" is from the beatles. i wonder if they meant to do that?

    General CommentBowling for soup are incredible! They have to ability to combine wicked music with positive/happy lyrics! They have their slower more meaningful tunes but all in all if i'm sad i listen to them... The simplicity of their songs like Blink 182's are in a class of their own... They prove you don't need to write huge guitar solos to make great music!
