Patrick Hernandez – Born To Be Alive lyrics

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.

    This song is dedicated to the winners of life, those who enjoy and live the Energy of being Alive, doing things all day long and still being happy and radiant to keep fighting to achieve their goals. Those who work a lot and are always moving from there to here, and powerful enough to resist a sport dance session after fighting a lot through the day both at job, society, street, etc. But, in resume, this song is about being alive and young! No matter if you are a 20 year-old exploiting your life at it's fullest, or a 90 year-old who still feels like a youngster to do things and never give up!

    He is a Free Spirit, not necessary in a lazy way. But the main point of the song. We are born to be alive. It's a privileged to have been conceived and born. Billions didn't or won't get this chance. Live and love life, be a good person. P. S. Give love to you pets, they are worth it, they are your best friend.
