October 2nd – Charles Darwin returns to England – “I will survive”

In 1836, #CharlesDarwin returned to England to write about survival of the fittest.  Today #GloriaGaynor proves the idea is still current.  #singing;#feelgood

2-10 Darwinism

I will survive

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 in how you did me wrong
and I grew strong
and I learned how to get alongAnd 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’d had known for just one second
you’d be back to bother meOh 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
and I’ve got all my love to give
and I’ll survive, I will survive hey hey

It took all the strength I had
not to fall apart
Just 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 in 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

Oh 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?
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
and I’ve got all my love to give
and I’ll survive
I will survive
hey, hey
