"I Believe in You, Basil" is a song from the Johnny and the Sprites episode, "Helpful Basil". It is performed by John Tartaglia as Johnny, Heather Asch as Root, Leslie Carrara as Ginger, Carmen Osbahr as Lily, James J. Kroupa as Seymour, and the Fuzzies. This song is used to help Basil believe that he can solve his friends' problems without the aid of his Helpful Hints book when he loses the key.


Lyrics

Johnny:
Things aren't going well today
You're feeling pretty low

Basil:
That's true.

Johnny:
Well, I'm not worried
You'll come through

Basil:
I will?

Johnny:
Sure.

Johnny:
I'll tell you how I know...

I believe in you, Basil
I know what you can do
I believe in you, Basil
Believe it or not, it's true
Trust me here, I know I'm right
You're a great problem-fixing Sprite
Oh, I believe in you, Basil
You should too

Basil:
Aww, thanks, Johnny. That's nice, but without the key to my Helpful Hints book, it's just-

Johnny:
I believe in you, Basil
With or without that key
I believe in you, Basil
You can fix things 1, 2, 3
Problems big or problems small
If you use your brain, you can fix 'em all
Oh, I believe in you, Basil
You should too

So tell yourself that you can help
To fix whatever's wrong
Take a breath, believe in you
And sing out loud and strong, loud and strong

I believe in you, Basil
And I'm not the only one

Johnny, Ginger, Lily, Root, Seymour and Fuzzies:
We believe in you, Basil
We know you can get it done
It's for sure, not maybe or might
Basil, you're our go-to Sprite
Oh, we believe in you, Basil

Johnny:
I believe in you, Basil

Johnny, Ginger, Lily, Root, Seymour and Fuzzies:
We believe in you, Basil
You should too
