Is it ok to omit prepositions "a", "the" in lyrics?

E.g. would the lyric sound natural if I say:
"Simple smile can do miracles."
instead of:
"A simple smile..."



Btw, For you both (wwittman and oche ecaps) English is your first language?

me?
Yes, from England.
and you?

The point here was to discuss what's acceptable, and advisable, in a LYRIC.

Personally, it bugs the #$%^ out of me when someone says "between you and I", in conversation, in print, OR in a lyric... but I understand that in a lyric it's "acceptable" to speak poorly sometimes.
