Smiles was Lee S. Roberts greatest success selling over 3.000.000 copies and even today it is still recorded. It is said that Smiles had been rejected by all the principal tin pan alley publishers. The sentimental lyrics eloquently eulogise the happy effects on the recipient of smiles from one's beloved.
Smiles was published by Jerome H. Remick & Co., New York & Detroit, USA.
