Who can turn the world on with his smile? Who can take a nothing day, and suddenly make it all seem worthwhile? Carl Xavier Smith. In west Philadelphia born and raised, on the playground is where Carl spent most of his days. Sunday, Monday, happy days. Tuesday, Wednesday, happy days. He knew that the world don't move to the beat of just one drum. What might be right for you, may not be right for some. Making your way in the world today takes everything you've got. Taking a break from all your worries, sure would help a lot. He said, "Green acres is the place for me. Farm livin' is the life for me." They called him Flipper, Flipper, faster than lightning. No-one you see, was smarter than he.
You take the good, you take the bad, you take them both and there you have Carl Xavier Smith. He's moving on up, to a deluxe apartment in the sky.
Y'all come back now, y'hear
Carl is survived by his loving wife, Irene, and his beautiful daughter, LouAna.
