I Will Survive

I was somewhat shocked, not to mention horrified, to learn this evening that my favourite Danish Pastry did not know the words to Gloria Gaynor's anthem for all of those with broken hearts: I Will Survive. Therefore, to ensure this sad state of affairs is sorted out, here they are.

Now sing!

At first I was afraid, I was petrified

Kept thinking I could never live, without you by my side

But I spent so many nights, thinking how you did me wrong

I grew strong, I learned how to carry on

and so you're back

from outer space

I just walked in to find you here

with that sad look upon your face

I should have changed my stupid lock

I should have made you leave your key

If I had known for just one second

you'd be back to bother me

Go on now go walk out the door

just turn around now

'cause you're not welcome anymore

weren't you the one who tried to break me with goodbye

you think I'd crumble

you think I'd lay down and die

Oh no, not I

I will survive

as long as I know how to love

I know I will stay alive

I've got all my life to live

I've got all my love to give

and I'll survive

I will survive

It took all the strength I had, not to fall apart

kept trying hard to mend, the pieces of my broken heart

and I spent oh so many nights, just feeling sorry for myself

I used to cry, now I hold my head up high

and you see me

somebody new

I'm not that chained up little person

still in love with you

and so you felt like dropping in

and just expect me to be free

now I'm saving all my loving

for someone who's loving me

And just in case, here's the original:



  1. Indeed! Chin up, tits out!

  2. ms scarlet ~ abso-fucking-lutely! Hugs to you! xxxx

  3. Oh boy!

    Sorry. I wouldn't have never guessed the lyrics were like that, I've mostly made up my own ones it seems.

  4. cyberpete ~ it happens. But I am still shocked at you. This is like the Gay Anthem of the World!
