Sammy Cahn & Jule Styne
featured by Frank Sinatra in the film "It Happened in Brooklyn".
Wishes and hopes are the tiny silk ropes to which we attach our dreams.
Tie up a few and I'm certain that you will begin to achieve your schemes.
When all the world is set ag'in ya, from deep within ya a voice will say:
"Look for the spark of your faith in the dark and that spark will light up your way"
I believe, I believe, I believe in wishing wells -
And 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 I believe in Santa Claus,
Why do I believe? I guess I believe because
I believe, I believe, I believe that dreams come true.
If you'll wish for the dream by a wishing well,
Don't tell the wish or you'll break the spell.
It may sound naive, but that's what I believe.
