Smiling faces sometimes
Pretend to be your friend
Smiling faces show no traces
Of the evil that lurks within

The truth is in the eyes
'Cause the eyes don't lie, Amen
Remember, a smile is just a frown turned upside down
My friend, so hear me when I'm saying

Smiling faces, smiling faces sometimes
They don't tell the truth
Smiling faces, smiling faces
Tell lies and I got proof

Beware, beware of the handshake that hides the snake
Beware, beware of the pat on the back, it just might hold you back
Jealousy, jelousy, misery, misery
Envy, envy, I tell you, you can't see behind

Smiling faces, smiling faces sometimes
They don't tell the truth
Smiling faces, smiling faces
Tell lies and I got proof

Your enemy won't do you no harm
'Cause you'll know where he's coming from
Don't let the handshake and the smile fool ya
Take my advice I'm only try' to school ya

Smiling faces, smiling faces sometimes
They don't tell the truth
Smiling faces, smiling faces
Tell lies and I got proof
Lies, lies, lies, lies, lies, lies

Don't be pulled in by the charm
A million dollar smile
Can be quiet constantly

Songwriters
Strong, Barrett / Whitfield, Norman J.
