Reisa L. Gerber – I'm Still Standing lyrics

I'm Still Standing
Reisa L. Gerber

Way back in '85,
I was filling out forms.
The mood was light, and hearts were warm.
I was working the dayshift,
Some tired ol facility,
When some old friend of mine decided on my

'Cuz I'm still standing, yeah,
I'm still in the wings,
And he's out there fighting still,
And all I do is sing.
But G-d help him to overcome
These awful things he knows.
It's all that anyone knows,
All that anyone knows.

With the money that I got back
From my income tax returns,
I had money in my pocket,
And I still had some to burn-
I bought myself a V.C.R.
With 225 bucks-
When you're out of money, you know,
You're simply out of luck!
I worked five months and then I ducked,
Safe in the arms of the law,
Concurrent disability with wages
..."someone saw!"
So I would like to let his justice cry out
in the end...
Peace of mind is like a pillow
An honest man sleeps on!

...Excuse me...

I would like to submit "I'm still Standing".
If you're not interested, please find a way to
let me know politely at this point.
Reisa L. Gerber
