"Although I Dropped $100,000 (I Found a Million Dollars in Your Smile)" is one of the songs written by the Sherman Brothers for A Symposium on Popular Songs.

The song is a style parody of "cheer-up songs" heard during the Great Depression. It makes references to songs such as "Let a Smile Be Your Umbrella", "Now's the Time to Fall in Love" (which was co-written by the Shermans' father, Al Sherman) and "Stormy Weather".

Lyrics

Although I dropped $100,000 in the market, baby
I found a million dollars in your smile
Yes, sir!
Stocks are crashing every day, banks are failing too
But who cares if those skies are gray, long as I have you dear
Once I was a millionaire on margin
Now I'm singin' in the breadline all the while
Although I dropped $100,000 in the market, baby
I found a million dollars in your smile
Yes, sir!

(Spoken)
There I was sitting on top of my lonely flagpole
Thinking of the money I lost
The factory was closed
And who knew when we'd start manufacturing running boards again?
How could I let a smile be my umbrella
When it was stormy weather all the time?
Although potatoes were cheaper
Now was definitely not the time to fall in love
And then I spied you
Selling apples on the corner, delicious
And you looked up at me and smiled
And the sun came shining through
And I slid down from my pole because I knew it was pointless

Although I dropped $100,000 in the market, baby
I found a million dollars in your smile
I'm happy
I found a million dollars in your smile
You betcha!
I found a million dollars in your smile
Yes, sir!
