I don't believe in superstars, organic food and foreign cars I don't believe the price of gold, the certainty of growing old, that right is right and left is wrong, that north and south can't get along, that east is east and west is west, and being first is always best. But I believe in love, I believe in babies I believe in mom and dad, and I believe in you. I don't believe that heaven waits for only those who congregate I like to think of God as love He's down below, He's up above He's watching people everywhere He knows who dies and doesn't care And I'm an ordinary man* Sometimes I wonder who I am. But I believe in love, I believe in music I believe in magic and, I believe in you. I know with all my certainty what's going with you and me is a good thing It's true, I believe in you. I don't believe virginity is as common as it used to be, in working days and sleeping nights, that black is black and white is white, that Superman and Robin Hood are still alive in Hollywood, that gasoline's in short supply, the rising cost of getting by. But I believe in love, I believe in old folks I believe in children, I believe in you But I believe in love, I believe in music I believe in children, and I believe in you.
*Die weiblichen Interpreten singen an dieser Stelle nat�rlich "girl", obwohl sich das nicht auf "am" reimt - aber das tut "man" strenggenommen ja auch nicht. � propos: Ich habe erst angeh�rs der kanadischen Alternativfassung von Annie Blanchard begriffen, worauf er in dieser Zeile anspielt: auf den Titel des gr��ten Hits von Robert Charlebois. Sie singt n�mlich an dieser Stelle: "Ich glaube nicht, da� niemand R.C. kennt." Na ja, in Qu�bec vielleicht, und vielleicht auch noch ein paar Musikfreunde in Frankreich. Aber z.B. in BRDigen d�rfte ihn kaum jemand kennen (au�er mir und den Lesern meiner Schlagerseiten, versteht sich ;-).
