The song is written by renowned producer and songwriter Tasuku Hayasaka and eventually wins the festival. However, the song is never recorded in the anime and is taken away from them after it is revealed that Tasuku gave the song for I-1 Club to sing instead.

During the stage play, as it is a retelling of the beginnings of Wake Up, Girls! a full live performance was conducted by the members.

Live Appearances Edit

The song has appeared in all 4 live tours performed by Wake Up, Girls! as well as several Festa appearances. During most appearances, it is done at the end of the set due to the high involvement of the crowd. In Festas, for example the 2016 Super Live, all members of Wake Up, Girls!, I-1 Club and NEXT STORM all participated, with WUG and I-1 for example mirroring each other in their solos (apart from Reina Ueda, who's character had not been introduced and Yuka Ootsubo from NEXT STORM instead took part in the verses).

Releases Edit

The Wake Up, Girls! version was never released as a standalone signal, as due to the plot essentially of the TV Anime, I-1 Club instead got the single release. However, the original version was instead released in the album Wake Up, Best! complete with a preview trailer as well.

LyricsEdit

Smile! A first-rate smile!

Using schedule written in the clouds
To fill up a somewhat lonely weekend
This isn't right

In the really boring normal days,
I took videos of my cat
How about sometimes rearranging my room?

Sliding through everyone's pictures
They were full of smiles, nothing but smiles
Let's dance, smile, smile
It made me laugh, and I cheered up
I won't give up no matter the season

I've experienced tiring seasons
So I love these unchanging smiles
Overwrite the smiles of Japan
Even in the toughest times
Let the smiles of Japan to be cuter
As the cherry blossoms bloom
I've experienced tiring seasons, so
My smile is a first-rate smile

It's a nice day so let's go out
Let's take a train ride to go far away
Go to the countryside and get some great vegetables

Even things you don't like to eat
If you pretend that they're delicious you'll come to like them
You'll think "Wow, I'm sorry I didn't know about you until now!"

The sea is wide and the mountains are incredible
Made in Japan is the best, it's my my my star
Japan can make anything
Come to play, come to visit
In this country of chopsticks from this end to that end

I've experienced tired seasons
So I'll show you an unchanging smile
The smiles of Japan overwrite
Even the kind of tough times
The smile sof Japan are hospitable
Like the colors of the bloomed cherry blossoms
I've experience tiring seasons, so
My smile is a first-rate smile

Don't worry I've experienced tears
So I love unchanging smiles
The "Don't worry" smiles overwrite
Even in the toughest times
Let the "Don't worry" smiles to be cuter
As the cherry blossoms bloom
Don't worry I've experienced tears, so
My smile is a first-rate smile!

笑顔!極上!スマイル!

クラウドに書かれたスケジュール
なんだか淋しい週末を
なんでもいいから埋めるっていうのはちがう

ほんと地味なの普通の日は
動画で猫をうつしてたり
どうでしょたまには部屋の模様がえなんかね

みんなの写真 スライドして見た
スマイルいっぱいで全開で スマイルだらけで
スマイル‥スマイル‥まいる

笑ってしまう 元気になったよ
あきらめない 春 夏 秋 冬の日も


シンドイ季節を知ってるから
かわらぬ笑顔を愛でる
ニッポンの笑顔が上書きする
なんかツライ時も
ニッポンの笑顔がかわいくする
咲きこぼれるサクラ色
シンドイ季節を知ってこその
笑顔 極上スマイル

天気がいい日はでかけよう
電車に乗ってちょっと遠出しよう
田園風景 すてきな野菜もとれる

ちょっぴり苦手なものだって
おいしいのたべたら好きになる
オイオイ今まで知らないでごめんと思う

海は広い 山もすごい
メイド・イン・ジャパンは最高さ マイマイマイスター
なんだってうみだせる

遊びに来て 会いにきてね
この端から端まで お箸の国ヘ


シンドイ季節を知ってるから
かわらぬ笑顔を見せる
ニッポンの笑顔が上書きする
なんかツライ時も
ニッポンの笑顔がもてなしする
咲きこぼれるサクラ色
シンドイ季節を知ってこその
笑顔 極上スマイル

ドンマイ 涙を知ってるから
かわらぬ笑顔を愛でる
ドンマイな笑顔が上書きする
なんかツライ時も
ドンマイな笑顔がかわいくする
咲きこぼれるサクラ色
ドンマイ 涙を知ってこその
笑顔 極上スマイル
