  • 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 gonna break

    Hey hey hey
    Smiling phases
    Showing traces
    Even if 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 to pay up

    Your friends are full of tricks
    But happiness is something
    That you just can't buy
    Own up to the truth girl
    Your love has gone on by
    Smiling Phases bring you flowers
    You can line 'em up
    And you can watch 'em grow for hours
    And you'll be amazed at the way that they stare

    As they walk by your door
    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 gonna break
    Hey hey hey
    Smiling phases
    Going Places
    Even if they bust you
    Keep on smiling through and through
    And you'll be amazed at the gaze
    On their faces as they sentence you!
