Studio Version


I was told a million times
Of all the troubles in my way
That I should grow a little wiser
A little better every day
But if I crossed a million rivers
And I rode a million miles
Well I'd still be where I started
Bread and butter for a smile
I sold a million mirrors
In a shop in alley way
But I never saw my face
In any window any day
Now they say your folks are telling you
Be a superstar
But I tell you just be satisfied
To stay right where you are

Keep yourself alive, yeah
Keep yourself alive
Take you all your time and your money
Put it to survive

Well I loved a million women
In a belladonic haze
And I ate a million dinners
Brought to me on silver trays
Give me everything I need
Feed my body and my soul
Well I grow a little bigger
Maybe that can be my goal
I was told a million times
Of all the people in my way
How I had to keep on trying
And get better ev'ry day
But if I crossed a million rivers
And I rode a million miles
Well I'd still be where I started
Same as when I started

Keep yourself alive, come on
Keep yourself alive
Ooh, take you all your time and your money
Put it to survive

Keep yourself alive, waoh
Keep yourself alive
Aah, take you all your time and the money
To keep me satisfied

Do you think you're better every day?
No, I just think I'm two steps nearer to my grave

Keep yourself alive, come on
Keep yourself alive
Mm you take your time and take my money
To keep yourself alive

Keep yourself alive, come on
Keep yourself alive
All you people keep yourself alive

Keep yourself alive, come on come on
Keep yourself alive
Take you all your time and the money
To keep me satisfied

Keep yourself alive
Keep yourself alive
All you people keep yourself alive

...
