About Time To Smile
This song had long been lost and was only discovered in 2004; Bennett’s recording on The Art of Romance was the song’s debut.

Lyrics

Time to smile
And laugh it up awhile
You start it off
And I’ll be next in line

I bet we’ll find to our satisfaction
That we both have started
A chain reaction

When you grin
You let the sunshine in
And when the sun shines in
It’s all worthwhile

No matter what the time of the day is
Any time’s the time to smile
Yes!

So time to smile
Laugh it up awhile
We’re playing dial-a-smile
Here’s how it goes

Get on the phone whenever you’re gloomy
Call me up and whisper your troubles to me

Day or night
The time is always right
There’s not a clock insight
They’re outta style

No matter what the time of the day is
Any time’s the time to
Any time’s the time to
Any time’s the time to smile
