"I Believe In You" as written by Deniece Williams and Lonnie Lee Simmons....
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

    General CommentMeaning of the song: The singer believes more in the girl he loves than he believes in all the truths in the world, like East is East and the certainty of growing old.

    My OpinionThis is why he is the King. Truer words were never spoken. Or more appropriate words for our time even after 30 years.
