Lyrics
At first I was afraid
I was petrified
Kept thinking I could never live
Without you by my side
But then I spent so many nights
Thinking how you did me wrong
And I grew strong,
and I learned how to get along
And so you're back
from outer space
I just walked in to find you here
with that sad look upon your face
I should have changed that stupid lock
I should have made you leave your key
If I had known for just one second
you'd be back to bother me
Go on now go
walk out the door
Just turn around now
'cause you're not welcome anymore
Weren't you the one
who tried to hurt me with goodbye
Did you think I'd crumble
did you think I'd lay down and die
Oh no, not I
I will survive
Oh as long as i know how to love
I know I'll stay alive
I've got all my life to live
I've got all my love to give
And I'll survive
Lyrics
I will survive
(hey, hey)
It took all the strength I had
not to fall apart
Kept trying hard to mend the pieces
of my broken heart
And I spent oh so many nights
just feeling sorry for myself
I used to cry
But now I hold my head up high
And you see me somebody new
I'm not that chained up little person
still in love with you
And so you felt like dropping in
and just expect me to be free
But now I'm saving all my loving
for someone who's loving me
Go on now go
walk out the door
Just turn around now
'cause you're not welcome anymore
Weren't you the one
who tried to break me with goodbye
Oh no, not I
I will survive
Oh as long as i know how to love
I know I'll stay alive
I've got all my life to live
I've got all my love to give
And I'll survive
I will survive

Hermes House Band covered the song in 1994, but Gloria Gaynor was the original artist who released it in 1978.

Google the video "I will survive alien." It came out several years ago, it's hillarious, and you will never hear this song again without thinking of it!

Listening to the song I always thought the line was "I'm not that pent-up little virgin" still in love with you. It's the only I missed. I LOVE this song!

I saw the title of this quiz and came here to get rid of the ear-worm.

Looking at Youtube for the official video - this quiz should be 3:11 long.

this song reminds me of my three favourite things; capitalism, revenge and women named Gloria.

You should listen to

Gloria - Laura Branigan (or the glee version tbh)

or for capitalism: Headlines - Drake; or National Anthem - Lana Del Rey

"No, it’s–Ah, Ah, Ah, Ah, stayin’ alive, stayin’ alive. Yeah, okay. You didn’t maintain 100 beats per minute, and the ambulance didn’t arrive because nobody called 911. So you lost him."
