"Smiling Phases" as written by Jim Capaldi, Chris Wood and Steve Winwood....
Do yourself a favor
Wake up to your mind
Life is what you make it
You see but still your blind
Get yourself together, give before you take
You'll find out the hard way
Soon you're going to break

Smiling phases, going places
Even when they bust you
Keep on smiling through and through
And you'll be amazed at the gaze on their faces
As they sentence you

You don't need a lawyer
When you're in a fix
Someone gets the pay off
You're friends are full of tricks
How could you love something
That you just can't buy?
Own up to the truth girl
Your mother's gone on by

Your companion, brings you flowers
You just hang him up
And keep him waiting there for hours
And you should just see the look on his face
As you slide down the rail

    Lyric CorrectionThese are not the lyrics to Smiling Phases. These are the lyrics to Shoot Out at the Fantasy Factory.

    Here are the real lyrics to "Smiling Phases:"

    Do yourself a favor
    Wake up to your mind
    Life is what you make it
    You see but still you're blind
    Get yourself together, give before you take
    You'll find out the hard way
    Soon you're going to break

    Smiling Phases, going places
    Even when they bust you
    Keep on smiling through and through
    And you'll be amazed at the gaze on their faces
    As they sentence you

    You don't need a lawyer
    When you're in a fix
    Someone gets the pay off
    You're friends are full of tricks
    How could you love something
    That you just can't buy?
    Own up to the truth girl

    Your mother's gone on by
    Your companion, brings you flowers
    You just hang him up
    And keep him waiting there for hours
    And you should just see the look on his face
    As you slide down the rail
