"I'm A Believer" as written by and Neil Diamond....
I thought love was only true in fairy tales
Meant for someone else but not for me
Love was out to get me
That's the way it seemed
Disappointment haunted all of my dreams

Then I saw her face, now I'm a believer
Not a trace, of doubt in my mind
I'm in love, and I'm a believer
I couldn't leave her if I tried

I thought love was more or less a giving thing
The more I gave the less I got oh yeah
What's the use in tryin'
All you get is pain
When I wanted sunshine I got rain

Then I saw her face, now I'm a believer
Not a trace, of doubt in my mind
I'm in love, I'm a believer
I couldn't leave her if I tried

What's the use of trying
All you get is pain
When I wanted sunshine I got rain

Then I saw her face, now I'm a believer
Not a trace, of doubt in my mind
I'm in love, I'm a believer
I couldn't leave her if I tried

Then I saw her face, now I'm a believer
Not a trace, of doubt in my mind
Now I'm a believer, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Now I'm a believer
Then I saw her face
Now I'm a believer
Not a trace, of doubt in my mind

    General CommentThe one thing people don't know is that smash mouth did two versions for this song. there was the one they did on their album, and the one they did for the movie. i don't really like the one on the movie, but the one on their album is pretty good.

    General Commentalienraven is 100% correct.

    This particular cover actually annoys the crap out of me. I suspect it's because everyone got so fscking obsessed with it after Shrek. Smash Mouth is better and above this; Fu Shyu Mang, and Astrolounge both come to mind as more fertile fields.

    General CommentThis has to be one of the crappiest covers of a '60s song EVER. I mean, damn -- Just give it up, guys. I cringed when this song came on as the finale to Shrek.
