here is my version of
GLORIA GAYNORS....'I WILL SURVIVE'
I WILL SURVIVE (Spark Style)
by SherylDS .... that's me
First I was afraid,
I was petrified.
Kept thinking I could never live
without an extra side.
And still I snacked so many nights
Even knowing it was wrong.
But I grew strong,
And I’m not singing that old song.
So now you're back.
Making me crave.
I just walked in to find you here
And now, I want a taste.
I should have had some carrot sticks.
I should have had some herbal tea.
If I had known for just one second,
you'd be back to tempting me.
And here I go, I’m out the door.
Junk's in the trash now,
'cause you're not welcome anymore.
Weren't you the one who tried to give me thunder thighs.
You think I'd crumble.
You think I'd sit down and dine.
Oh no, not I.
I will survive,
Oh, as long as i know how to lose,
I know I'll exercise.
I've got all my life to live.
And I've got all my love to give,
and I'll survive.
I will survive
Hey , Hey
It took all the strength I had
not to eat that tart.
Kept trying hard to mend
the pieces of my candy heart.
And I spent oh so many nights
just feeling sorry for myself.
I used to cry
But 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 food.
And so you felt like dropping in
and just expect me to concede.
But now I'm saving all my eating
for the food that’s good for me.
Hey , Hey
