Let Me Make You Smile, Girl

Music and Lyrics by Dave Walley
For Laurie

I just can't figure it out.
You're very wonderful and you let it show.
And there really isn't a doubt,
You're just about the prettiest girl I know.

And yet you always seem to be so sad.
I can't believe that things could be that bad.

You must have plenty of friends,
Who wouldn't ever let you be lonely, girl.
Plus guys who spare no expense
To let you know that you are their only girl.

So many girls would love to take your place.
Yet you so seldom wear a happy face.

I don't like seeing you frown.
You look like you're on trial, girl!
Don't let the world get you down.
C'mon, let me see you smile, girl!

I'd really like to succeed
In finding out what causes your smile to hide.
Could it be that you have a need,
That there is something missing deep down inside?

If love is what you need so desperately,
Then maybe all you really need is me.

Time will not alter my stance,
The only dream I have is to be your man.
Aw, girl, please give me a chance,
'Cause I can make you happy, I know I can!

I'll stand beside you, girl, through thick and thin,
And do the best I can to make you grin.

I can't stand watching you frown.
That's just not my style, girl.
I wanna help you turn it around.
C'mon, let me make you smile, girl!

If love is what you need so desperately,
Then maybe all you really need is me.

Time will not alter my stance,
The only dream I have is to be your man.
Aw, girl, please give me a chance,
'Cause I can make you happy, I know I can!

I'll stand beside you, girl, through thick and thin,
And do the best I can to make you grin.

I can't stand watching you frown.
That's just not my style, girl.
I wanna help you turn it around.
C'mon, let me make you smile, girl!

I don't like seeing you frown.
C'mon, let me make you smile, girl!
I wanna help you turn it around.
C'mon, let me make you smile, girl!
I can't stand seeing you frown.
C'mon, let me make you smile, girl!
I wanna help you turn it around.
C'mon, let me make you smile, girl!
