Arthur Opening Theme


Believe In Yourself

Believe in Yourself is the theme song to the Arthur TV series performed by Ziggy Marley and the Melody Makers. An instrumental version also plays over the end credits. The original recording is 1:51, but is shortened to about 1 minute for the opening theme and 45 seconds for the credits.

It was first made available on Arthur and Friends: The First Almost Real Not Live CD (or Tape), as the first track. A remix of the theme plays over the credits of Season 6 and was released on the album, Arthur's Really Rockin' Music Mix.

The theme was covered by the Backstreet Boys for the special, Arthur, It's Only Rock 'n' Roll.

Lyrics

Everyday when you're walking down the street,

Everybody that you meet.

Has an original point of view.


And I say HEY!

What a wonderful kind of day.

If we could learn to work and play.

And get along with each other.


You got to listen to your heart.

Listen to the beat.

Listen to the rhythm, the rhythm of the street.


Open up your eyes.

Open up your ears.

Get together and make things better

By working together.


It's a simple message and it comes from the heart.

Oh,

Believe in yourself! (believe in yourself!).

For that's the place to start! (place to start!)


And I say HEY!

What a wonderful kind of day!

If we could learn to work and play!

And get along with each other!


Hey!

What a wonderful kind of day!

Hey!

What a wonderful kind of day!

Hey!!


Hey, D.W.!

Hey!

WHOA!
