"I Believe" is a song Frank Sinatra recorded under both Columbia Records and Capitol Records.

This song was first recorded by Sinatra for the soundtrack to the film It Happened in Brooklyn. This performance was released as a single in 1947 along with the B-side "Time After Time." This song peaked at #5 on the charts of that year, while its B-side peaked at #16.[2]

In 1957, Sinatra later recorded the song again under Capitol Records, recording many of his Columbia classics with new Nelson Riddle arrangements.

Lyrics Edit

I believe, I believe,
I believe in wishing wells,
But I also believe in a lot of things,
things the daisy tells,
I believe, I believe that a four-leaf clover brings,
Lots of luck, lots of joy, lots of happiness,
I believe those things.

And when it's Christmas time I believe in Santa Claus,
Why do I believe, I guess that I believe because
I believe, I believe,
I believe that dreams come true,
If you wish for a dream by a wishing well,
Don't tell your wish or you'll break the spell,
It may sound naive, but that's what I believe.

And when it's Christmas, I try to believe in Santa Claus,
Why do I believe, I guess that I believe because
I believe, I believe,
I do believe that dreams come true,
And if you wish for a dream by the wishing well,
Don't you tell the wish or you'll break the spell,
It may sound naive, but that's what I happen to believe.
