  • 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

    Well 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 does 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 goin'
    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

    I believe in love, I believe in babies
    I believe in mom and dad
    And I believe in you Writer/s: Roger F. Cook, Sam Hogin
