STAYIN' ALIVE

Original Bee Gees version


Well you can tell by the way I use my walk I'm a woman's man, no time to talk
Music loud and women warm, I've been kicked around since I was born
And now it's all right, I don't care, and you may look the other way
We can try to understand the New York Times' effect on man

Whether you're a brother or whether you're a mother
You're stayin' alive, stayin' alive
Feel the city breaking and everybody shaking
And we're stayin' alive, stayin' alive
Ah, ah, ah, ah, stayin' alive, stayin' alive
Ah, ah, ah, ah, stayin' alive
Oh, when you walk

Well now I get low and I get high and if I can't get either, I really try
Got the wings of heaven on my shoes, I'm a dancing man and I just can't lose
You know it's all right, it's ok, I'll live to see another day
We can try to understand the New York Times' effect on man

Whether you're a brother or whether you're a mother
You're stayin' alive, stayin' alive
Feel the city breaking and everybody shaking
And we're stayin' alive, stayin' alive
Ah, ah, ah, ah, stayin' alive, stayin' alive
Ah, ah, ah, ah, stayin' alive
Oh-oh

Life going nowhere, somebody help me, somebody help me, yeah
Life going nowhere, somebody help me, yeah
I'm stayin' alive

Well you can tell by the way I use my walk, I'm a woman's man, no time to talk
Music loud and women warm, I've been kicked around since I was born
Now it's all right, it's ok, and you may look the other way
We can try to understand the New York Times' effect on man

Whether you're a brother or whether you're a mother
You're stayin' alive, stayin' alive
Feel the city breaking and everybody shaking
And we're stayin' alive, stayin' alive
Ah, ah, ah, ah, stayin' alive, stayin' alive
Ah, ah, ah, ah, stayin' alive
Yeah

Life going nowhere, somebody help me, somebody help me, yeah
Life going nowhere, somebody help me, yeah
I'm stayin' alive

Life going nowhere, somebody help me, somebody help me, yeah
Ahh, ahh
Life going nowhere, somebody help me, yeah
I'm stayin' alive

Life going nowhere, somebody help me, somebody help me, yeah
Ahh, ahh, ahh, ahh
Life going nowhere, somebody help me, yeah
I'm stayin' alive

Life going nowhere, somebody help me, somebody help me, yeah
Ahh, ahh, ahh, ahh
Life going nowhere, somebody help me, yeah
I'm stayin' alive
