Believe in Yourself

by Channing Banks

Believe
Believe in yourself
There's always someone in life who will say you're not tall enough, strong enough for the love
There's always someone in time who tell you it's "no no no" and to just give up
But look in your heart and you'll see that you're strong
Look in yourself and believe that they're wrong
You're beautiful, wonderful, perfect and nice
Let nobody out there tell you otherwise

Believe in yourself
Let nobody get you down
Believe in yourself
(repeat once)

There's always something that seems that it's so much better that you should just move along
There's always someone that thinks what you got ain't right and that it's only only only wrong
But look in your heart and you'll see that you're strong
Look in yourself and believe that they're wrong
You're beautiful, wonderful, perfect and nice
Let nobody out there tell you otherwise

Believe in yourself
Let nobody get you down
Believe in yourself
(repeat once)

So come on friends
Let's see what you've learned, let's see if you passed the test
Are you beautiful?     Oh Yeah, Oh Yeah
Are you smart?     Oh Yeah, Oh Yeah
Are you perfect?     Oh Yeah, Oh Yeah
Are you wonderful?     Oh Yeah, Oh Yeah
Are you sweet?     Oh Yeah, Oh Yeah
Are you fantastic?     Oh Yeah, Oh Yeah
Are you super-duper?     Oh Yeah, Oh Yeah
Do we love you?     Oh Yeah, Oh Yeah

Great white shark, great white shark, lurking in the water,
Great white shark, great white shark, Gulp, Gulp, Gulp!
Oh, no! It's been eaten by a?
Humongous whale, humongous whale, spouting in the water,
Humongous whale, humongous whale,
Gulp! ? Gulp! ? Gulp! ? BURP!
Pardon me!
