The Human Race is runnin' over me
I punch a clock at 9 and 5
Just tryin' to make a livin'
A plastic face on satellite TV
Says, "Life is filled with give and take"
He's takin' and I'm givin'
So I dance

It's my system of survival (SOS)
I'm dancin'
System of survival (SOS)
It's a system of survival
Future revival
Greet the new arrival

At times it's the only way
I'm gonna make it through this day

[Chorus]
Everybody get up
Do your dance
Keep survivin'
Everybody get up
Do your dance
Stay alive

A city night
I walk a street in fear
While politicians brag about
A paperwork solution

Another life
I shed another tear
I'm waiting for somebody new
To lead the revolution
So I dance

It's my system of survival
It's my system of survival

Everybody get up
Do your dance
Keep survivin'
Everybody get up
Do your dance
Stay alive

Everybody get up
Do your dance
Keep survivin'
Everybody get up
Do your dance
Stay alive

(SOS) Send it out
Send it out, send it out, send it out.
