Smile Through the Pain lyrics

Smile Through the Pain

CHARLIE
I?m getting out
I mean I gotta take a break
Sit by a man made lake
Watch the day turn into dark
Pepper?s really out of whack
So here I am in Central Park
Nicky?s never coming back
She asked me for hand
And so I told her, ?Listen Kiddo
He?s just a month long stand
Try not to play the grieving widow?
So I got my new shades for the lonely guy
And the pretty boys on roller blades go by

Hi.

ALAN
Hi.

CHARLIE
I don?t mean to be intrusive
But did you go the exclusive
Camp Pinecone?

ALAN
Camp Pinecone? Oh, yeah.

CHARLIE
Camp Pinecone?s for the lads and lasses
Of the upper middle classes
Get your children off their asses
Parents spend some time alone
Your boys go hiking, girls ride horses
While you settle your divorces
The best camp in the world of course is Camp Pinecone

ALAN
I did something illegal with Jessica Seagal
She made faces when my braces got caught up in her tights

CHARLIE
Experiments with Noah Schwartz
On evenings on the tennis courts
We?d both remove our boxer shorts

BOTH
Those awkward summer nights

CHARLIE
Remember you and me in the talent show?
Can?t remember?

ALAN
I don?t know

CHARLIE
We did our old vaudeville routine
A lot has happened in between

ALAN
You were my straight man

CHARLIE
Not as of late man

ALAN
We were the Martin and Lewis of Maine

CHARLIE
Remember our song?

ALAN
Smile through the pain

BOTH
We?re Chuck and Al and we don?t suck

ALAN
I was Al

CHARLIE
And I was Chuck

Don?t you ever feel like there?s only five people in the world sometimes?

So what do you do now?

ALAN
I teach children Hebrew
And there?s a beautiful Jew now
That I like to pursue
And her father is sick
And her boyfriend?s a dick

CHARLIE
What?s her name?

ALAN
Heidi.

CHARLIE
What?s his name?

ALAN
Nick.

CHARLIE
Ahh.

Everyone knows everyone wherever you go
New York?s the biggest little town I know

ALAN
So what?s up Chuck? Having girl trouble?

CHARLIE
Well, yes, Al. Yes I am.

ALAN
That?s funny. I always thought you were a little? um? you know.

CHARLIE
Homosexual, Al?

ALAN
Sure. Homosexual sounds about right to me.

CHARLIE
Well to be honest Al, I don?t know what I am.

ALAN
That?s all right. You know what the say, you just gotta smile through the pain!

Things are rough, well don?t you suffer
Had enough? The tough get tougher
When your love life?s not a lot
Don?t get caught in the rain
Don?t pretend you?re Rockefeller
The more you spend the les you tell her

BOTH
If you joke when you go broke
You won?t hear her complain
After a while
You?re learning to smile
Through the pain

CHARLIE
Not too hip, you?re feeling shabby
Forgot to tip your favorite cabby
Before you drown in bathtub gin
Begin to win, abstain

ALAN
Life?s a show with no admission
What?chu know ?bout prohibition

BOTH
Don?t be a slug, unplug that tub
And pour it down the drain
After a while
You?re learning to smile
Through the pain

CHARLIE
(weird noises)

ALAN
(laughs)
You like that move?

CHARLIE
Watch this.

ALAN
You just touched my ass.

CHARLIE
Hey.

ALAN
(laughs)

CHARLIE
Couldn?t help.

BOTH
So when you want it go and get it
What?s to know? You know don?t sweat it
It?s time you faced it?s wrong to waste
That super duper brain

Don?t be a poop, it?s time to do it
Get off the stoop and get into it
You see your life go loop-dee-loop
The scoop is ?Don?t Complain?
After a while
You?re learning to smile
Through the pain

After a while
You?re learning to smile
Through the pain
