Alfie (From Timeless)
Barbra Streisand

-Spoken Intro-
"One day, a number of years ago, I was in a cab on my way to a recording session. And the radio was on and I heard this girl singing and I thought "What a pretty song! Why haven't I recorded that?". This is true!! So, when I arrived at the studio I called the station to find out who the girl was and they said it was ME. They said "Barbra Streisand". I think they even said it right. But I thought "Isn't that funny?" Because I guess I'd recorded, you know, so many albuns and songs but it turned that I actually forgot that I'd sang that song. So, I would like to sing it for you tonight. It's one of the most beautiful movie themes ever written by my friend Burt Bacharach."

What's it all about
Alfie?
Is it just
For the moment we live?
What's it all about
When you sort it out, Alfie?
Are we meant to take more
Than we give
Or are we meant to be kind?

And 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 nonbelievers
Can believe in

I believe in love
Alfie
Without true love
We just exist, Alfie
Until you find the love
You've missed
You're nothing, Alfie
When you'll walk
Let your heart lead the way
And you'll find love
Any day, Alfie
