Smile composed by Charlie Chaplin and originally sung by Nat King Cole is featured in Mattress, the twelfth episode of Season One. It is sung by the New Directions, with solos from Artie, Finn, Mercedes, and Rachel.

The song plays in the background when the Glee kids are getting ready for the yearbook pictures. The Glee Club's photo is eventually defaced by AzimioKarofsky and other members of the football team. We never actually see the New Directions perform the song.

It is featured on Glee: The Music, Volume 2.

Lyrics

Rachel:
Smile though your heart is aching
Smile even though it's breaking
When there are clouds in the sky

Rachel and Finn:
You'll get by

If you smile through your pain and sorrow
Smile and maybe tomorrow
You'll see the sun come shining through for you

Mercedes (New Directions):
Light up your face with gladness (Gladness)
Hide every trace of sadness
Although a tear (Tear)

Mercedes with New Directions:
may be ever so near

Mercedes and Artie (New Directions):
That's the time (That's the time) you must keep on trying
(Smile) Smile, what's the use of crying?
You'll find that life is still worthwhile (with New Directions: If you just smile)

Artie:
Oooooo

Rachel:
Oh, ooh

Mercedes:
Ooh yeah yeah yeah

Mercedes and Artie (New Directions):
That's the time (That's the time) you must keep on trying (Rachel: Ooooh)
(Smile) Smile, what's the use of crying? (Rachel: Ooooh)
You'll find that life is still worthwhile

Mercedes and Artie with New Directions:
If you just smile

Rachel and Artie with New Directions:
Smile though your heart is aching (Mercedes: Is aching)
Smile even though it's breaking (Mercedes: It's breaking)

Mercedes and Artie with New Directions:
(New Directions Boys: When there are) When there are clouds in the sky
You'll get by

Rachel and Finn with New Directions:
That's the time (New Directions: That's the time) you must keep on trying (Artie: Keep on trying)
(New Directions: Smile) Smile, what's the use of crying? (Mercedes: What's the use of crying?) (Artie: What's the use)
You'll find that life

Rachel, Finn, and Artie with New Directions:
Is still worthwhile
If you just

Mercedes:
Smile

Rachel and Finn:
You'll find that life is still worthwhile
If you just smile

Rachel:
Smile...
