You've Got To Learn
Charles Aznavour

You've Got To Learn

You've got to learn to show a happy face
Although you're full of misery
You mustn't show a trace of sadness
And never look for sympathy

You've got to learn, although it's very hard
The way of pocketing your pride
And sometimes face humiliation
While you are burning up inside

Facing reality is awful hard to do
When it seems happiness is gone
You've got to learn, to hide your tears
And tell your heart life must go on

You've got to learn, to leave the table
When love is no longer being served
Just show them all that you are able
To leave without saying a word

You've got to learn, to hide your sorrow
And go on living as before
What good is thinking of tomorrow
Who knows what it may have in store?

You've got to learn, to be much stronger
At times your head should rule your heart
You've got to learn, from hard experience
And listen to the voice and sometimes pay the price

But I won't learn to live
With a broken heart
