Bowling for Soup - Shut-Up and Smile

It’s not the end of the world
— in fact it’s not even the end of the summer
but thank God the TV is on,
‘cuz there’s no way we could know
anything that’s going down,
or how we’re supposed to be feeling about it.
I can’t tell you how much I wish we could shut up and smile, yeah.

Sail around the world and tell them all to keep singing it:
La la la la la la.
All we need’s a harmony and we’ll convince the world to sing:
La la la la la la.
Throw your arms around someone (throw your arms around someone),
maybe spread a little love.
I know it sounds a little dumb (or maybe I’m a little drunk)
but all we need is some ice cream and a hug.

Take a good look around.
Does life really suck or are we just complaining?
I hope that this mic is on (testing 1, 2)
‘cuz I’m on a roll here.
I hope this is making some sense,
I hope that you’ll throw up your hands and sing it
and tell all the haters that they should just shut up and smile, yeah.

Sail around the world and tell them all to keep singing it:
La la la la la la.
All we need’s a harmony and we’ll convince the world to sing:
La la la la la la.
Throw your arms around someone (throw your arms around someone),
maybe spread a little love.
I know it sounds a little dumb (or maybe I’m a little drunk),
but all we need is some ice cream.

All we need is love and beer
and old-school metal and holiday cheer
to be happy
(All you need is someone near)
like Ben and Jerry.
(to hold you close and pretend that they care.)

Can’t we all just.. get along now?
We found something that we all have in common now.
We can hold hands, do keg stands,
water skiing sounds great to me now.

Sail around the world and tell them all to keep singing it,
la la la la la la.
All we need’s a harmony and we’ll convince the world to sing,
la la la la la la.
Throw your arms around someone (throw your arms around someone),
maybe spread a little love.
I know it sounds a little dumb (or maybe we’re a little drunk),
but all we need is some ice cream and a hug.

(All we need is love and beer …)
All we need is some ice cream and a hug
all we need is some ice cream and a hug
all we need is some ice cream and a hug..
