The ToneWay® Project: helping people play music

I'll Be All Smiles Tonight

I'll deck my brow with roses
my 4 true love may be 1 there
The 5 gems that others gave me
will shine within my 1 hair
And even those that know me
will 4 think my heart is 1 light
Tho' my 5 heart may break tomorrow
I'll be all smiles to- 1 night

I'll be all smiles tonight love
I'll be all smiles tonight
Tho' my heart may break tomorrow
I'll be all smiles tonight

And when the room he entered
the bride upon his arm
I stood and gazed upon him
as though he were a charm
And then he smiled upon her
as once he smiled on me
They know not what I suffered
they found no change in me

And when the dance was over
and all have gone to rest
I'll think of him, dear mother
the one that I love best
He once did love, believe me
but now he's cold and strange
He sought not to deceive me
false friends have brought this change
