The Lyrics

After watching Barry Manilow's " Wrinkle Free " performance on PBS Capitol Fourth special on July 4th, I think Barry may have to update the words to match his face after his 2004 plastic surgery.......
You know I can't smile and that's true
I can't smile unlike you
I can't laugh it's hard to sing
I can't blink my eyes or do anything
You see my skin's taut so damn taut
It's not what I had thought
If only I knew but now I'm so screwed
I just can't smile and that's true

What could go wrong went very wrong
With my surgery
I feel remorse, my face looks G-Force
Oh Mandy won't you please help me

And now you know I can't smile and that's true
I can't smile as I used to
I can't emote the songs I wrote
Even now my face looks a Botox bloat
I had a Nip/Tuck with no luck
My face's stuck and that sucks
If only I knew but now I'm so screwed
I just can't smile

Now the doctors say the numbness wears off after two weeks mend
Been nine years now still trying to get the feeling again

And you see I can't smile and that's true
I can't smile oh boo hoo
I can't lie and that's why
I got this constant look of wild surprise
Though my skin's nice paid the price
Wrinkle free but I don't look right
If only I knew but now I'm so screwed
I just can't smile and that's true

This made me smile. You should learn to smile inwardly like a good Nazi.

I saw him on the last Capitol Fourth and he was as great as ever.

2Eagle I agree. He always does a great show and a "tight" performance.

...still trying to get the feeling again! Oh my god. Love Barry but this is hilarious!!! And sadly true. Just found this site today & this is by far my favorite. Love how you worked several of his songs in there. Now I need to go see when he's coming to N. Texas again. Thanks for the laugh. Lots of talent on this site.
