Lyrics To It’s Great to Be Alive

To work from nine to five
To have a piece of land to farm

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
Deductable dependents

(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 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)

(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)
Deductable dependents
(In attendance)

It’s great, it’s great to be alive
We’re livin’, thanksgivin’
