“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… a givin’ thing
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]
Micky: Yeah! Go, Pete!

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

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

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 (I’m a believer)

Micky: Thank you.
Peter: Alright, now, we’re gonna do a song that uh, Micky wrote, that uh…
