Happy Valentines Day ‘The smile on your face’


My Valentine’s Day satirical song writing continues this year as well to poke fun at those auditors supporting management to manipulate accounts for the survival of both parties. Satirical essays are often aimed at political candidates, office behavior or situations that are absurd, but this particular one may not sound absurd?

“When You Say Nothing at All” is a countrysong written by Paul Overstreet and Don Schlitz. It is among the best-known hit songs for three different performers: Keith Whitley, who took it to the top of the Billboard Hot Country Singles chart on December 24, 1988; Alison Krauss, whose version was her first solo top-10 country hit in 1995; and Irish pop singer Ronan Keating, whose version was his first solo single and a chart-topper in the United Kingdom and Ireland in 1999.

I heard this song thrice in the morning, today, and that prompted me to think that it must be popular and hence people can connect the tune to the lyrics below. I have changed the lyrics to reflect the love some of the auditors have towards their suspicious clients, for fun;

The hole in your accounts
Lets me know that you need me
There’s no truth in your eyes
Cos you’ll always manipulate me
The frauds on your hand
Says I’ll also fall if ever you fall
Anyway I’ll do my best
To cover your back.

All day long I can hear
people talking about the fraud
But when you come near
you drown out the crowd
Old Mr. IFRS could never reconcile
What’s being stated between
your ledger and mine

The smile on your face
Lets me know that you need me
