“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 (Di di-di, di-di)
That’s the way it seemed (Di di-di, di-di)
Disappointment haunted all my dreams

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
Ah, what’s the use in tryin’? (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

[break]

Love was out to get me (Di di-di, di-di)
That’s the way it seemed (Di di-di, di-di)
Wu-uh-hu-hu haunted all my dreams

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 (I’m a believer)
I’m a believer (I’m a believer)
I’m a believer (I’m a believer)
I’m a believer (Yeah, I’m a believer)
I’m a believer (Oh, I’m a believer)

Micky: Thank you. I can’t see a thing.
Peter: You guys are no good at all. We’re going to play a tune now that Micky wrote… a-ha, some of you already know what it is. Heh heh heh, Micky has written only one, he says. That’s not so, Micky, you wrote another one, I heard you sing “Happy Birthday” the other day. He wrote the song, and it’s so far out that not even Micky knows what it means.
Micky: And I don’t care!
Peter: He barely knows how to spell it!
