Take off
I was told a million times
Of all the troubles in my way
Mind you grow a little wiser Little better every day
But if I crossed a million rivers
And I rode a million miles
Then I'd still be where I started Bread and butter for a smile Well I sold a million mirrors
In a shopping alley way
But I never saw my face
In any window any day
Now they say your folks are telling you
Be a super star
But I tell you just be satisfied Stay right where you are

Keep yourself alive yeah
Keep yourself alive
Ooh, it'll take you all your time and money Honey you'll survive 
Ow

Well I've loved a million women
In a belladonic haze
And I ate a million dinners Brought to me on silver trays
Give me everything I need
To feed my body and my soul
And I'll grow a little bigger Maybe that can be my goal
I was told a million times
Of all the people in my way
How I had to keep on trying And get better every day
But if I crossed a million rivers
And I rode a million miles
Then I'd still be where I started Same as when I started 
Keep yourself alive, come on
Keep yourself alive
Ooh, it'll take you all your time and money honey
You'll survive - shake 
Ow
Keep yourself alive, wow
Keep yourself alive
Oh, it'll take you all your time and money To keep me satisfied 
Do you think you're better every day?
No, I just think I'm two steps nearer to my grave 
Keep yourself alive, c'mon
Keep yourself alive
Mm, you take your time and take more money Keep yourself alive
Keep yourself alive
C'mon keep yourself alive
All you people keep yourself alive
Keep yourself alive
C'mon c'mon keep yourself alive
It'll take you all your time and a money To keep me satisfied Keep yourself alive
Keep yourself alive
All you people keep yourself alive
Take you all your time and money honey
You will survive 
Keep you satisfied
