A smile is contagous, 

     you can catch it like the flu

When someone smiled at me today, 

     I started smiling too

I walked around the corner,

     and someone saw me grin

When  he smiled I realized, 

     I had passed it on to him

I  thought about the smile,

     and realised its worth

 A single smile like mine, 

     could travel round the earth

So if you feel a smile begin, 

     dont leave it undetected

Smile at someone next to you, 

     and get the whole darn world infected
