I'm tired of this tiredness
and though I think I try my best
as soon as I get out of bed
I'm weary and I need to rest

Yes, I know,
this isn't the way to go
To rid me of this lethargy
I need a clever remedy so

Can you teach me how to smile?
I haven't practiced for a while
Picture this:
I'd like to be an optimist

Aware of my self-consciousness
I'm getting more and more depressed
I'm the best at judging me
my most impressive quality

Yes, I know,
this isn't the way to go
To counteract timidity
I need effective remedy so

Can you teach me how to smile?
I haven't practiced for a while
Picture this:
I'd like to be an optimist

Can you teach me how to smile?
I haven't practiced for a while
Re-ignite
those cheerful feelings warm and bright

Can you teach me how to smile?
I haven't practiced for a while
Picture this:
I'd like to be an optimist
