"Believe It or Not" as written by and Mike/geyer Post....
Look at what's happened to me
I can't believe it myself
Suddenly I'm up on top of the world
It should have been somebody else

Believe it or not, I'm walkin' on air
I never thought I could feel so free
Flyin' away on a wing and a prayer
Who could it be?
Believe it or not it's just me

Just like the light of a new day
It hit me from out of the blue
Breaking me out of the spell I was in
Making all of my wishes come true

Believe it or not, I'm walkin' on air
I never thought I could feel so free
Flyin' away on a wing and a prayer
Who could it be?
Believe it or not it's just me

This is too good to be true
Look at me falling for you
Believe it or not, I'm walkin' on air
I never thought I could feel so free
Flyin' away on a wing and a prayer
Who could it be?
Believe it or not it's just me

Believe it or not, I'm walkin' on air
I never thought I could feel so free
Flyin' away on a wing and a prayer
Who could it be?
Believe it or not it's just me

Believe it or not, I'm walkin' on air
I never thought I could feel so free
Flyin' away on a wing and a prayer
Who could it be?
Believe it or not it's just me

    General CommentI was sickened to discover this song was about his first homosexual encounter.

    I mean the modesty of the man impressed me, i imagined in my own naive mind that this bloke was working at a supermarket store and dreamed of one day rising throught the ranks. But no! It was about AIDS... god damn aids.. I guess the song does have a certain irony.

    I wanna smash his face in with a beer bottle in the supermarket car park while he waits for his wife to arrive in his simple minded station wagon.

    The man is a cock and loves chicken wings after going to church with his abnoxious cap wearing son, thus the line 'flying away on a wing and a prayer'.

    I wish aids ravaged his body before the song could be released.

    In addition i want to rip the strings off the fucken horrible electric guitar and garrote the remaining band members.

    The drummer loves drugs and anal

    General Commentdavisonfire1 wtf are you talking about you idiot this song wasn't even written by scarbury he was simply chosen to perform it. it was written by mike post as a 1 min short song for the opening sequence to the show "greatest american hero" and with the show popularity was extended into a full length song. It's about the TV show nothing else. Take your homophobic crap somewhere else this song has nothing to do with being gay or aids.
