We were born to be, alive
We were born to be, alive

Born, born to be alive (born to be alive)
Yes we were born, born, born, born to be alive

People ask me why I never found a place to stop and settle down, down, down.
But I never wanted all those things people need to justify their lives, lives, lives

Yes we were born, born, born to be alive (born to be alive)
Yes we were born, born, born

It's good to be alive, to be alive, to be alive
It's good to be alive, to be alive, to be alive
It's good to be alive

Time was on my side when I was running down the street, it was no bind, bind, bind
A suitcase and an old guitar and something new to occupy my mind, mind, mind

Yes we were born, born, born to be alive (born too be alive)
Yes we were born, born, born
Yes we were born, born, born to be alive (born too be alive)
Yes we were born, born, born
Yes we were born, born, born to be alive (born too be alive)
Yes we were born, born, born
Born to be alive
Yes we were born, born, born to be alive (born too be alive)
Yes we were born, born, born, born to be alive.
