You've got to learn to show a happy faceAlthough you're full of miseryYou mustn't show a trace of sadnessAnd never look for sympathy
You've got to learn, although it's very hardThe way of pocketing your prideAnd sometimes face humiliationWhile you are burning up inside
Facing reality is awful hard to doWhen it seems happiness is goneYou've got to learn, to hide your tearsAnd tell your heart life must go on
You've got to learn, to leave the tableWhen love is no longer being servedJust show them all that you are ableTo leave without saying a word
You've got to learn, to hide your sorrowAnd go on living as beforeWhat good is thinking of tomorrowWho knows what it may have in store?
You've got to learn, to be much strongerAt times your head should rule your heartYou've got to learn, from hard experienceAnd listen to the voice and sometimes pay the price
But I won't learn to liveWith a broken heart
