I Will Survive

First I was afraid, I was petrified
Kept thinking I could never live without the plastic bag
But then I spent so many days thinking how you did us wrong
And I grew strong
And I learned how to get along
But see you’re back
Washing up onto the shore
I just walked along the beach and found you trashing it some more
I should have carried cloth bags sooner, banned you long before I did
If I’d known for just one second you’d be back to bother me
Go on now, go, into recycling you go
We’ll turn you into pellets now
‘Cause you’re not welcome in this form
You were the one who tried to clog up all our fishes and the seas
You think we’d crumble?
Just lay down and let them die
Oh no, not us, we will survive
So, as long as we can love the earth, humans will stay alive
We’ve got all our life to live
We’ve got all our love to give and we will survive
Without the bag, hey, hey.

Based on Plastic Bags. This parody is in tribute to “I will Survive” by Gloria Gaynor. I danced to this song almost every night with an online Facebook dance group in the early months of Covid. A life saver! Thank you Gloria! Songwriters: Dino Fekaris / Frederick J. Perren. I Will Survive lyrics © Universal Music Publishing Group
