============================================


        You didn't care when I begged you to stay
        why don't you smile now
        You laughed at me and walked away
        why don't you smile now

        Why don't you smile yeah, smile woah
        why don't you smile yeah, smile woah
        Why don't you smile now, oh yeah

        Fancy talk, Cadillac car
        but your love didn't get you far
        Why don't you smile now

        You said he has everything you need
        why don't you smile now
        You said he could give you much more than me
        why don't you smile now, yeah yeah

        Why don't you smile yeah, smile woah
        why don't you smile yeah, smile woah
        Why don't you smile now, yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah

        Sequined dress, high heeled shoes
        baby, all you got was blues
        why don't you smile now

        Now you're back, you want back in
        but baby you just watch me grin
        Why don't you smile now, yeah yeah yeah

        Why don't you smile yeah, smile woah
        why don't you smile yeah, smile woah
        Why don't you smile yeah, smile woah
        why don't you smile yeah, smile woah

On your site you say you need the words to
Why Dont You Smile Now, by Reed and Cale
from before the Velvet Underground.

This was transcribed by me from listening to a cover of the song
by the band Spiritualised.
I think the words are the same,
but Spiritualised might have added an extended chorus at the end!



You didn't care when I begged you to stay
why don't you smile now
You laughed at me and then you walked away
why don't you smile now

Why don't you smile yeah, smile woah
Smile yeah, smile woah
Why dont you smile now

You said he could give you much more than me
why don't you smile now
You said he could give you everything you need
why don't you smile now

Why don't you smile yeah, smile woah
Smile yeah, smile woah
Why dont you smile now

Sequined dress and high heeled shoes
but baby all you got was blues
why dont you smile now
Now you're back you want back in
but baby you just watch me grin
why dont you smile now

Why don't you smile yeah, smile woah
Smile yeah, smile woah
Smile yeah, smile woah
Smile yeah, smile woah
Smile yeah, smile woah
Smile yeah, smile woah
Why dont you smile

Smile yeah ooh y dont u smile
ooh why dont u smile
Smile yeah ooh y dont u smile yeah

Smile yeah, smile woah
Smile yeah, smile woah
Smile yeah, smile woah
Smile yeah, smile woah
Smile yeah, smile woah
Smile yeah, smile woah
Smile yeah, smile woah
(fade out)



Hope that helps.

Tim

2nd Verse should be:

Fancy talk, cadillac car
but your love didn't get you far
why don't you smile now?
