​You've Got To Believe In Something

This song is by Spin Doctors and appears on the album You've Got To Believe In Something (1996) and on the compilation album Just Go Ahead Now: A Retrospective (2000).

You've got to believe in something
It's a lonely universe
Be careful what you wish for
Cause your improvement might be worse
Birth is a missing persons file
It's a case of role reversal
Life is a play...
Sometimes I can remember the rehearsal
You've got to believe in nothing
There's an awful lot out there
There's an awful lot in make up
Some in every perfect hair
You know I lose a lot of sleep
Wondering if nothing would ever desert us
But I know they don't know nothing
And what they don't know can't hurt us
I want to tell you
This guy wants to charge you a nickel
I want to tell you
This guy wants to charge you a dime
I want to tell you
I'm 'o' charge you a five dollar bill
And show you a real fine time
Real fine time
There's a candy coated iguana
Behind curtain number one
And a sixteen dollar bill
For every pregnant flying nun
They got a soda-pop that'll save the wold
It's a tonic and an elixir
It's a get-you-laid
Better-paid
Guaranteed all-round life-fixer
I want to tell you
This guy wants you to change a twenty
I want to tell you
This guy wants you to change a ten
I want to tell you
This guy knows you already did it
But he wants you to do it again
Do it again
You've got to believe in something
It's a lonely universe
Be careful what you wish for
Cause your improvement might be worse
Birth is a missing persons file
It's a case of role reversal
Life is a play, they say
Sometimes I can remember the rehearsal
I want to tell you
Some say life is a blessing
I want to tell you
Some say life is a curse
I want to tell you
Some say life is a play
But you get no time to rehearse
And you got to believe in something
'Cause it's a lonely universe
You got to believe in something
