ARTHUR Theme Song

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,
And everybody that you meet
Has an original point of view

And I say hey! (Hey!)
What a wonderful kind of day
If we could learn to work and play
And get along with each other

You gotta 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
Believe in yourself,
For that's the place to start

And I say hey! (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!

History

Believe in Yourself liner notes image

Hey and Crashes

  • Version 1: Used on some Arthur releases. D.W says hey, and after Arthur crashes into the title, a boing sound is heard with broken pieces also heard.
  • Version 2. Used pretty much on almost all Arthur episodes from the time. D.W says Hey, and after Arthur crashes into the title, the broken pieces sounds are still used, but there is no boing sound in this version.
  • Version 3: Used on reruns of the earliest Arthur episodes. The voices are out of sync in the song, and then, D.W says Hey, and then, after Arthur crashes into the title, a big splash of water is heard
  • Version 4: Also used on reruns of the earliest Arthur episodes. The voices are still out of sync, and then D.W says hey. After Arthur crashes into the title, the sound of garbage cans clanking and clattering are heard.
