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?

Santana with Alumni and New Directions vocalizing:
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

Santana (Alumni and New Directions):
I believe in love, Aflie (Alfie)
Without true love we just exist, Alfie

Santana with Alumni and New Directions vocalizing:
Until you find the love you've missed you're nothing

Santana with New Directions and Alumni:

Santana (Alumni and New Directions):
When you walk let your heart lead the way
And you'll find love any day, Alfie (Alfie)
