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.

Lyrics

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

Finn and Rachel:
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:
Light up your face with gladness (Gladness)
Hide every trace of sadness
Although a tear (Tear)
may be ever so near

Artie and Mercedes:
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,
If you just smile

Artie:
Oooooo

Rachel:
Oh, ooh

Mercedes:
Ooh yeah yeah yeah

Artie and Mercedes:
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

Artie and Mercedes:
If you just smile

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

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

Finn and Rachel with New Directions:
That's the time (That's the time) you must keep on trying (Artie: Keep on trying)
(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

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

Mercedes:
Smile

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

Rachel:
Smile...
