You can do it, anything you want
You can do it if you try
You can make the world a better place
Don't try to hide

You can have it any way you want
Take your time to decide
Now I got a reason
I'm so glad

So you're feelin' down
Got no one around, oh, no
Wish you had that someone {To make you feel}
Every day you're glad to be alive

World just keeps on turnin'
Spinnin' 'round and 'round all the time
If you have a dream {Like Dr. King}
Don't let 'em drag you down, no

You can do it, anything you want
You can do it if you try
You can make the world a better place
Don't try to hide {Ho}

You can have it any way you want
Take your time to decide
Now I got a reason
I'm glad to be alive

One boy meets a girl {Woo, woo, uh}
Then they fall in love {The story goes}
They can change the world {Every day}
Everybody's glad to be alive

What's the use in tryin', oh
Look at all the people {With no brain}
Ain't no use in cryin', no {Ain't no way}
You can find a way, oh

You can do it, anything you want {Oh}
You can do it if you try (Oh, yeah)
You can make the world a better place {Make it better}
Don't try to hide (Yes, you can)

You can have it any way you want
Take your time to decide
Now I got a reason
I'm glad to be alive {Glad to be alive}

You can do it, anything you want
You can do it if you try (If you try)
You can make the world a better place
Don't try to hide

You can have it any way you want (Any way)
Take your time to decide {Ooh}
Now I got a reason
I'm glad to be alive {Glad to be alive}

Oh, oh, yeah {Oh, oh}
Shout about it, yeah
Shout about it, ooh
So glad to be alive
{Oh, oh} Oh, oh
Just to hear you sing this song

Yes, I'm glad to be alive
So glad to be alive
Oh, yes, I'm glad to be alive
So glad, a reason

You can do it {Yeah}, anything you want {Oh, oh}
You can do it if you try
You can make the world a better place
Don't try to hide { Don't try}

You can have it any way you want
Take your time to decide
Now I got a reason
I'm glad to be alive

Yes, I'm glad {Ooh} to be alive
{So glad} So glad (Shout it out, yeah)
Oh, yes, I'm glad {Oh} to be alive
Now I got a reason
I'm glad to be alive

Yes, I'm glad to be alive
So glad
Oh, yes, I'm glad to be alive
(Yeah) {Yeah} (Yeah) {Yeah}

Yes, I'm glad to be alive
So glad
