SoNG: Stayin' Alive

Stayin' Alive
Lyrics by robin earth, 1983 to the tune of "Stayin' Alive" by the Bee Gees
PeHP Source: Songsheets 1985

Well, you can tell by the way we sing our songs
We’re from the womyn’s peace camp, and it won’t be long
Before you see us climbing a fence or weaving a web
It all makes sense

Because it’s not all right, it’s not okay, you can’t look the other way
For those missiles we must stop from being deployed in Europe

We’ll set up peace camps all o’er the land
To stay alive, stay alive
Arm in arm we’ll make a stand, to stay alive, stay alive.
No Pershings! Stayin’ alive, stayin’ alive.
Stop the Cruise! Stayin’ alive, stayin’ alive.

Now it’s time for people everywhere who’ve heard the news 
about the Pershing, about the Cruise
To join together and organize, agitate to stay alive

Because it’s not all right, it’s not okay, you can’t look the other way
For those missiles we must stop from being deployed in Europe

Asia we hear your call, we won’t let a people fall
We have a vision in our sight for stayin’ alive, stayin’ alive.
Arm in arm we’ll join our might, to stay alive, stay alive.
No more Pershings! Stayin’ alive, stayin’ alive.
Stop the Cruise! Stayin’ alive, stayin’ alive.
 
No more lies!
