Stayin' Alive Lyrics

Oh oh ohhh
Oh oh ohhh

Life was simple,
Roger was working round the clock to make a living,
No computers, none of that, he used his two hands,
Ignored the cold war
His wife would keep him warm,
On the weekends,
He'd load the car up with the kids and they'd go fishing,
No need to work an extra job, there's no recession,
Damn right he smiled a lot
They lay awake at night
So in love

It was a good good year(oh oh oh)
The kids were all right,
"Highway to Hell" beat up "Stayin' Alive",(oh oh oh)
The clash was on the radio
And mom and dad were still in love,
In 1979
It was a good, good year.

In the morning,
Robin always woke up early in the kitchen,
She'd make the coffee, pack his lunch and then she'd kiss him
And he would hold her tight
When they were newly weds
He'd say maybe
And she would laugh, they knew they'd have another baby
She'd slave away all day until dinner was ready,
And they would dance so slow to "Just the Way You Are".

It was a good, good year(oh oh oh)
The kids were all right,
"Highway to Hell" beat up "Stayin' Alive",(oh oh oh)
The clash was on the radio
And mom and dad were still in love,
In 1979
It was a good, good year.

All the decades and the years have passed,
Not every family is built to last,
No time can take away these memories
Remember when you said to me
That we'd be all right.

Oh oh ohhh
The kids were all right,
"Highway to Hell" beat up "Stayin' Alive",(oh oh oh)
The clash was on the radio
And mom and dad were still in love,
In 1979
It was a good, good year.

Oh oh ohhh
Disco couldn't survive
With the "Dream Police" and "Rock N Roll High" (oh oh oh)
Blondie put out "Heart of Glass"
And mom and dad bought their first house
In 1979
It was a good, good year.

Glee Quotes

You know, a great big fat person once stood on this stage and told a group of a dozen or so nerds in hideous disco outfits that glee, by its very definition, is about opening yourself up to joy. Now it's no secret that for a long time I thought that was a load of hooey. As far as I could see the glee club was nothing but a place where a bunch of cowardly losers go to sing their troubles away and delude themselves into thinking that they live in a world that cares one iota about their hopes and dreams, totally divorced from the harsh reality that in the real world there's not much more to hope for than disappointment, heartbreak, and failure. And you know what. I was exactly right. Thats exactly what glee club is. But I was wrong about the cowardly part. What I finally realized, now that I'm well into my late thirties, it takes a lot of bravery to look around you and see the world not as it is but as it should be. A world where the quarterback becomes best friends with the gay kid, and the girl with the big nose ends up on Broadway. Finding the courage to open up your heart and sing about it. That's what glee club is. And for the longest time I thought that was silly, and now I think it's just about the bravest thing that anyone could do.

Sue

[to Finn] You know, I don't really know what's going to happen between us, but I know that you used to be the guy that would make me feel like the most special girl in the whole world, and it doesn't feel that way anymore. Now it just feels sad and confusing. And the worst part is that it doesn't even feel that bad anymore.
