“I’m a Believer (live)”

Lyrics

Davy: Dah dah-dah dah-dah dah. If you wouldn’t start, I’m not starting. I’m a star. Ah, dear. How you doin’?

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

And then I saw her face
Now I’m a believer
Ah, not a trace
Of doubt in my mind
I’m in love (Ooh, whoa)
I’m a believer
I couldn’t leave her if I tried

Well, I thought love was more or less a givin’ thing
It seems the more I gave, the less I got
Ah, what’s the use in tryin’? (Do do-do, do-do)
All you get is pain (Do do-do, do-do)
And when I needed sunshine, I got rain

And then I saw her face
Now I’m a believer
Ah, not a trace
Of doubt in my mind — Everybody
I’m in love (Ooh, whoa)
I’m a believer
I couldn’t leave her if I tried, ah

Davy: One time! Let’s dance! Woo!

Oh, love was out to get me (Do do-do, do-do)
Well, that’s the way it seemed (Do do-do, do-do)
And 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 (Ooh, whoa)
I’m a believer
Couldn’t leave her if I tried

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

Davy: Yeah! Thank you! Have a great night! Don’t spend more than you can afford to lose, okay? See you later. The boys and girls in the band!
