Be The Reason

BE THE REASON
(©2016, Roy Williams; Karen Gregory)

Be The Reason somebody smiles today
Be The Reason somebody feels okay
What a feeling a little love goes a long way
Be The Reason somebody smiles

A careless look or comment can ruin someone's day
A warm embrace can help them forget to be afraid
People say how good it makes them feel when they give

If you could watch the world through another person's eyes
They saw you show them kindness wouldn't that be nice
Every day we get to show each other life is a beautiful thing

When you get a chance lend a helping hand

Be The Reason somebody smiles today
Be The Reason somebody feels okay
What a feeling a little love goes a long way
Be The Reason somebody smiles

An email or a text a visit or a call
It doesn't take a lot to cheer somebody up at all
Pay it forward lend an ear share your love its yours to give

When you see a chance lend a helping hand

Be The Reason somebody smiles today
Be The Reason somebody feels okay
What a feeling a little love goes a long way
Be The Reason somebody smiles

We can drive like it's a race or relax let the other car in
Speak in the elevator be nice to your waiter treat him like you'd treat a friend

Be The Reason somebody smiles today
Be The Reason somebody feels okay
What a feeling a little love goes a long wa-ay ...

Be The Reason somebody smiles today
Be The Reason somebody feels okay
What a feeling a little love goes a long way
Be The Reason somebody smiles

What a feeling a little love goes a long way
Be The Reason somebody smiles
What a feeling a little love goes a long way
Be The Reason somebody smiles

Toys

TOYS
(©2017, Roy Williams; Karen Gregory)

When I was a kid I had a ball
I had more stuff than I could use from the time I could crawl
I'd see the newest Toys on TV and boy I wanted them all

Teddy bears checker boards puzzles and dice
Multi-coloured cubes spinning wheels flying kites
If it whistled beeped or buzzed or even better came with lights

CHORUS
Toys come in every shape and size Toys what I've come to realize
If you're young if you're old if you're big if you're small it doesn't matter at all
Everybody loves Toys

When I was a teen I loved to play
I could hit and run and throw and catch and kick every day
If I woke up and it was raining Plan B was video games

Got a job bought a car I could call mine
Learned to play guitar practiced hard every night
All my buddies dug our band but even better girls liked us

CHORUS
Toys come in every shape and size Toys what I've come to realize
If you're young if you're old if you're big if you're small it doesn't matter at all
Everybody loves Toys Toys Toys Toys Toys (make some noise!)

We all need to play I mean everyone
I think it's safe to say there's no such thing as too much fun

CHORUS

Now I'm all grown up I know what I need
I want more fun fly or ride float or ski
It might cost more but it's worth it to me

CHORUS

Toys provide an education Toys an endless fascination
If they ever fall apart you gotta fix or replace them

CHORUS

Everybody loves Toys
Everybody loves Toys Toys Toys
Everybody loves Toys
Toys!

Your Smile

YOUR SMILE
(©2015, Roy Williams; Karen Gregory)
(1/2 CH)
Nothing in this world makes me feel so fine
Your Smile tastes so sweet when it’s pressed against mine

Every woman loves a man who loves to make her laugh
Who’s strong enough to mean it when he tells his friends she’s the better half
You drive me crazy in more ways than one
I wouldn’t have it any other way
Down to earth all grown up but you still know how to play

(CH)
Your Smile feels like sunshine on the breeze
Your Smile has the power to put me at ease
Nothing in this world makes me feel so fine
Your Smile tastes so sweet when it’s pressed against mine

Every woman loves a man who listens with his heart
Who always makes her dream about holding him whenever they're apart
I’ve always loved you I always will
It doesn’t matter what gets in our way
There’s one thing that’s guaranteed to always make my day

(CH)
Your Smile feels like sunshine on the breeze
Your Smile has the power to put me at ease
Nothing in this world makes me feel so fine
Your Smile tastes so sweet when it’s pressed against mine

Dance with me ooh when we kiss

(1/2 CH)
Nothing in this world makes me feel so fine
Your Smile tastes so sweet when it’s pressed against mine

(CH-var.)
Your Smile oh ooh oh Your Smile
Your Smile baby Your Smile
Nothing in this world makes me feel so fine
Your Smile tastes so sweet when it’s pressed against mine
