Lyrics
What's it all about, Alfie?
Is it just for the moment we live?
What's it all about, when we sort it out, Alfie?
Are we meant to take more than we give?
Or are we meant to be kind?

If only fools are kind, Alfie,
Then I guess, it is wise to be cruel.
And if life belongs, only to the strong, Alfie,
What will you lend on an old golden rule?
As sure as I believe, there's a heaven above, Alfie.
I know there's something much more,
Something even non-believers, can believe in.
I believe in love, Alfie.
Without true love you just exist, Alfie,
Until you find the love you've missed, you're nothing.
Alfie..
When you walk, let your heart lead the way,
And you'll find love any day.
Alfie.. hmm.. Alfie.

(..)

I believe in love, Alfie.
Without true love you just exist, Alfie,
Until you find the love you've missed, you're nothing.
Alfie..
When you walk, let your heart lead the way,
And you'll find love any day.
Alfie.. hmm.. Alfie.
