“I’m a Believer” Lyrics

I thought love was only true in fairy tales
Meant for someone else but not for me
Ah, love was out to get me
That’s the way it seemed
Disappointment haunted all my dreams (Alright!)

Then I saw her face
Now I’m a believer
Not a trace
Of doubt in my mind
I’m in love (Whoa, yeah)
I’m a believer
I couldn’t leave her if I tried

I thought love was more or less a givin’ thing
Seems the more I gave, the less I got
What’s the use in trying? (Di di-di, di-di)
All you get is pain (Di di-di, di-di)
When I needed sunshine, I got rain

Then I saw her face
Now I’m a believer
Not a trace
Of doubt in my mind
I’m in love (Whoa, yeah)
I’m a believer
I couldn’t leave her if I tried

Yes, I saw her face
Yes, I saw her face

Oh, love was out to get me (Di di-di, di-di)
That’s the way it seemed (Di di-di, di-di)
Disappointment haunted all my dreams

And then I saw her face
Now I’m a believer
Not a trace
Of doubt in my mind
I’m in love (Whoa, yeah)
I’m a believer
I couldn’t leave her if I tried

Yes, I saw her face
Now I’m a believer
Not a trace
Of doubt in my mind
I’m a believer, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah-eah-eah (Yeah, I’m a believer)
I’m a believer, yeah (Yeah, I’m a believer)
I’m a believer (Whoa, I’m a believer)
I’m a believer (Yeah, I’m a believer)
I’m a believer (Yeah, I’m a believer)

Micky: Thank you.
Peter: Duh, duh duh.
Micky: Thank you very much. Now for my own composition.
Peter: Heh heh heh heh. We’re waiting for—any time, Micky. Okay.
Davy: Oh, get over here.
