The Lyrics

For anyone struggling with the stock market insanity.... :-)
First I was afraid, I was terrified!
Kept thinking my retirement funds
Would never ever stay alive
Then I spent so many hours thinking
Where did I go wrong
but I grew strong
and I learned how to just HOLD ON!

So now my stock has hit the rocks
I just walked in to find the NASDAQ
rating in a state of shock
I should have sold when stocks were high
I should have switched to gold instead
If I had known for just one second
That the Dow would drown in red

Go on now SELL, don't be afraid
Just press that button
Who needs money anyway
You can relax
As your investments take a dive
No time to panic..
No time to lay down and die..

SO don't give up. We will survive!
Oh as long as we know how to laugh,
I know we'll stay alive.
There's a rally on the way
Investor confidence today
We will survive, We will survive!
Hey hey..

It took all my strength
To simply keep inspired
Just tryin' hard to earn
enough to keep the kids and dogs alive
And I spent oh so many nights
just feelin' sorry for myself,
I used to cry
But now I hold my head up high,

I've been reborn, I'm feelin free;
I'm not that worried little person
Who lives in fear of bankruptcy
The stock keeps sliding down
but I am happy and carefree,
Cause I know its only money
and not all that life should be

Go on now smile, don't hesitate
Just live with different dreams,
instead of money, just capitulate
Just be the one
who leads the way with something new
Keep your spirits soaring high
You have to just break through

Now don't you cry. We will survive!
Oh as long as we know how to laugh,
I know we'll stay alive.
There's a rally on the way
Investor confidence today
We will survive, We will survive!
Hey hey..
