Don't Start Believin' (Journey Parody)

Person is on stage holding a jar of pills. Piano slowly builds.
Person: So, consumers - when we dilute the medicine again and again in water you will find that it does not weaken, oh no - the water has memory. It gets stronger. It's called Homeopathy and it's the newest frontier in modern science.
(Another person approaches)
Just a small town girl
Livin' in a lonely world
She took the midnight train goin' anywhere

Just a city boy
Born and raised in south Detroit
He took the midnight train goin' anywhere

A singer in a smoky room
A smell of wine and cheap perfume
For a smile they can share the night
It goes on and on and on and on

Strangers waiting
Up and down the boulevard
Their shadows searching in the night
Streetlight people
Living just to find emotion
Hiding somewhere in the night

Working hard to get my fill
Everybody wants a thrill
Payin' anything to roll the dice just one more time

Some will win, some will lose
Some were born to sing the blues
Oh, the movie never ends
It goes on and on and on and on

Strangers waiting
Up and down the boulevard
Their shadows searching in the night
Streetlight people
Living just to find emotion
Hiding somewhere in the night

Don't stop believin'
Hold on to that feelin'
Streetlight people

Don't stop believin'
Hold on
Streetlight people

Don't stop believin'
Hold on to that feelin'
Streetlight people

He was no scientist

Stating things that don't exist

He tried to postulate without evidence


Not a single brief

Handing down a new belief

He tried to postulate without evidence 


He called it homeopathy

He said it's due to memory

But we're not gonna trust his claim

We will test and test and test and test


Science Methods

Testing your hypothesis

Disproving theories that don't fit

If you claim it

Better find some evidence

We won't believe your bull shit


Adding water to a pill

Diluting it leaves you ill

Tryin' anything for a result tonight


Where's your facts? Where's your truth?
You're missing what we call proof

Oh, your bull shit never ends

We will test and test and test and test


Science Methods

Testing your hypothesis

Disproving theories that don't fit

If you claim it

Better find some evidence

We won't believe your bull shit


Don't start believin'

They will be deceivin' 

If you hear it


Don't start believin'

Test it

Data Results


Don't start believin'

Hold on to that feelin'

Streetlight people
