"Smile Away" as written by and Paul James Mccartney....
One, two, three, four
Woohoo
I was walking down the street the other day
Who did I meet?

I met a friend of mine and he did say
Man, I can smell your feet a mile away

Smile away, smile away, smile away, yeah smile away
Smile away, smile away, smile away, yeah smile away
Smile away, smile away, smile away, yeah smile away
Smile away, smile away, smile away, yeah smile away

I was walking down the street the other day
Ah, who did I meet?
I met a friend of mine and he did say
Man, I can smell your breath a mile away

Smile away, smile away, smile away, yeah smile away
Smile away, smile away, smile away, yeah smile away
Smile away, come on now, hoo, sweet little girl, smile away
Yes, sir smile away, now smile away, quietly now
Hoo hoo
Smile away now
Smile away, smile away, smile away, yes, sir, smile away

Ah, who did I meet?
I met a friend of mine and he did say
Well, I can smell your teeth a mile away

Smile away, oh, oh, oh, oh, smile away, oh, oh, smile away, oh, oh, oh, oh, smile away
Oh, oh, oh, oh, smile away, oh, oh, oh, oh, smile away, oh, oh, oh, oh, smile away
Oh, oh, oh, oh, smile away, oh, oh

    General Commenti think it has to do with not worrying what anyone else things and "smiling away" aka living your life and being happy.

    General CommentI've listened to this song since it was released. But, it wasn't until a few weeks ago I really listened to the chorus behind the main lyrics. I always thought it was just nonsense in harmony sung by Linda, but;
    "I don't know how to do that. I don't know how to do that..." Then, "I'm learning how to do that. I'm learning how do do that..."
    It makes sense for the theme of the song, but I'm not sure I'm hearing it correctly.

    My InterpretationMethinks Don Paolo is singing of a stereotypical unwashed, unkempt, barefoot hippie from the '60s-early '70s who is too happy doing his own thing and living his own life to give a hoot or a honk what anyone says about his grooming and attire.
