I play the stereo loud
When I’m away from the maddening crowd
Smokin’, jokin’
Clowns we all are

Sometimes, kinda get real ill
When I receive my monthly telephone bill
But you say it, and I’ll pay it
’cause it just helps me to

Survive (survive), stay alive
’til I see you again
Survive, stay alive
Can’t say where it ends

Clouds lift and there’re mountains below
Been awhile since I’ve seen any snow
It’s chillin’, so thrillin’, so good to be back

Feels nice, to be home for awhile
Let’s sip champagne till we break into smiles
We’ll go dancin’, romancin’
’cause you’re the reason i

Survived (survived), stayed alive
Through the thick and the thin
Survive, stay alive
Where will it all end

But my bags ain’t unpacked
’cause I’ve got to go back and play
But I know we’ll both

Survive (survive), stay alive
Through the thick and the thin
Survive, stay alive
Until it all ends

Oh we’ll, survive (survive), stay alive
When will it all end
Survive, stay alive
Till I see you again
