You Gotta Believe in Something

Songwriter: Norman Jesse Whitfield /Performed by: The Pointer Sisters

You got to believe in somethin’
Why not believe in me?
You got to believe in somethin’
Why not believe in me?

What have I, I done to you
To make you mean
And treat me the way you do?

Go on and wave your flag, brother
Start your revolution
I’m willin’ to let you do your thing
Tell me, why are you blind
When it comes to mine?

Take the chain off your brain
Take the chain off your brain

Why don’t you let the Wilson (children) set you FREE!
