  • I believe kids oughta stay kids as long as they can
    Turn off the screen, go climb a tree, get dirt on their hands
    I believe we gotta forgive and make amends
    'Cause nobody gets a second chance to make new old friends
    I believe in working hard for what you've got
    Even if it don't add up to a hell of a lot

    I believe most people are good
    And most mama's oughta qualify for sainthood
    I believe most Friday nights look better under neon or stadium lights
    I believe you love who you love
    Ain't nothing you should ever be ashamed of
    I believe this world ain't half as bad as it looks
    I believe most people are good

    I believe them streets of gold are worth the work
    But I still wanna go even if they were paved in dirt
    I believe that youth is spent well on the young
    'Cause wisdom in your teens would be a lot less fun
    I believe if you just go by the nightly news
    Your faith in all mankind would be the first thing you lose

    I believe most people are good
    And most mama's oughta qualify for sainthood
    I believe most Friday nights look better under neon or stadium lights
    I believe you love who you love
    Ain't nothing you should ever be ashamed of
    I believe this world ain't half as bad as it looks
    I believe most people are good

    I believe that days go slow and years go fast
    And every breath's a gift, the first one to the last

    I believe most people are good
    And most mama's oughta qualify for sainthood
    I believe most Friday nights look better under neon or stadium lights
    I believe you love who you love
    Ain't nothing you should ever be ashamed of
    I believe this world ain't half as bad as it looks
    I believe most people are good

    I believe most people are good
