Smile with Spike Milligan

Visible to anyone in the world

Smiling is infectious

You catch it like the flu,

When someone smiled at me today,

I started smiling too.


I passed around the corner

And someone saw me grin.

When he smiled I realized

I’d passed it on to him.


I thought about that smile,

Then realized its worth.

A single smile, just like mine

Could travel round the earth.


So if you feel a smile begin,

Don’t leave it undetected.

Let’s start an epidemic quick

And get the world infected!
