Bee-LieveAs you nurture new buds and fresh shoots Don’t let cruel words strangle each blossom Rather pluck them right out by their roots And be happy to tangle and toss ‘em Yes, just leave them behind (They’re like weeds in your mind) And believe in yourself – Bee-lieve. What the buzz are they bumbling about? What the fuzz are they mumbling about? They’re just grumbling and fumbling And stumbling about; Their thoughts have no power Their words have no clout So believe in yourself – No doubt. As you stretch out your wings wide and roam Through new days that are dark or are sunny You’re expanding the reach of your home And besides that, you’re making sweet honey Yes, I think you will find You’re the best of your kind So believe in yourself – Bee-lieve. What the chit are they chattering about? What the flit are they nattering about? They’re just clattering and battering And scattering about; Their looks have no poison Their deeds turn about So believe in yourself – No doubt. As you fly by from flowers to trees And you feel that the strain may be showing Just remember, you’re surfing the breeze There’s no telling the places you’re going You’re the dance of new rhymes You’re the song of our times So believe in yourself – Bee-lieve.
