It's Great to Be Alive
It's great to be alive To work from nine to five To have a piece of land to farm It's great to be alive To have a car to drive And have your baby on your arm In spite of bills And other minor ills Somehow we manage to survive It's great to be in love To have a roof above And watch the little ones around Your own descendant Deductible dependents It's great to be alive It's great to be alive (It's great to be here and kickin') To work from nine to five (To hear an alarm clock tickin') And have a piece of land to farm (It's really a kick to cultivate chickens on a little ol' farm) It's great to be alive (It's up to work and strivin') To have a car to drive (Then take your girl to a drive-in) And swing your baby on your arm (To know that at five you're really arrivin', she'll be holding your arm) In spite of bills (Even though the bills just pile up by the million) And other minor ills (We manage to find the proper pills) Somehow me manage to survive (To lose the little ills, straight, that really is great) It's great to be alive (That girl to love you) To have a roof above (That roof above you To watch the little ones arrive) (Especially with the little ones arrivin' and all that jive) Your own descendants (Your descendants) Deductible dependents (In attendance) It's great, it's great to be alive We're livin', thanksgivin' It's great to be alive
