“I’m a Believer” Lyrics

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

Ah, then I saw her face
Now I’m a believer
Not a strace
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 mine
I’m in love (Whoa, yeah)
I’m a believer
I couldn’t leave her if I tried, ah

[break]

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

Then I saw her face
Now I’m a believer
Not a trace
Of doubt in my mine
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-ah-ah (I’m a believer)
I’m a believer (I’m a believer)
I’m a believer (I’m a believer)
I’m a believer (I’m a believer)

Micky: Thank you.
Peter: We’re gonna do uh, a song uh, uh, the, one of the ones that uh, we wrote on the new album. Uh, the new album, the new album called uh, “With A Little Help From My Friends”, and uh, Micky wrote this song, and he uses that incredible monstrosity there. Uh, the, the words to this song, nobody can figure out, least of all Micky.
