    Lyrics

    It's great to be alive
    To work from nine to five
    To have a piece of land to farm

    It's great to be alive
    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
    Deductible dependents
    It's great to be alive

    It's great to be alive
    (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 great to be alive
    (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)

    It's great to be alive
    (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)
    Deductible dependents
    (In attendance)

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