“What’s it all about – Alfie?”

I awoke with a song in my heart. “I believe in love” – again! I was living in San Francisco in 1966 – before The Summer of Love! We hippies heard this song – regulated to our background. I never saw this movie – that was nominated for many Academy Awards – and won for Best Foreign Picture. What!!!!

Oh, I get it. Michael Cain is a member of The British Invasion. He plays a macho womanizer – who is not a Rock Star! Why does Alfie do for a living? This is where We Hippies got lost. We invented a new form of love – that I missed – in my dream last night. I tried to watch the Oscars, but, could not live stream it. On tik tok – I saw what I missed!

What’s it all about – Will Smith? You crossed a line. I’m going to walk you – back over it!

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 non-believers 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 walk let your heart lead the way
And you’ll find love any day, Alfie
