  • I could just sit around making music all day long
    As long as I'm making my music ain't gonna do nobody no harm
    And who knows maybe I'll come up with a song
    To make people want to stop all this fussing and fighting
    Long enough to sing along

    I believe in music
    I believe in love
    I believe in music
    I believe in love

    Music is love and love is music if you know what I mean
    People who believe in music are the happiest people I've ever seen
    So clap your hands and stomp your feet and shake those tambourines
    Lift your voices to the sky tell me what you see.

    I believe in music
    I believe in love
    I believe in music
    I believe in love

    Music is the universal language, and love is the key
    To peace hope and understanding, and living in harmony
    So take your brother by the hand and come along with me
    Lift your voices to the sky, tell me what you see

    I believe in music
    I believe in love
    I believe in music
    I believe in love
