keep yourself alive reprise live at the rainbow london november 1974
lyrics

I was told a million times

Of all the troubles in my way

Might you grow a little wiser

Little better ev'ry day

But if I crossed a million rivers

And I rode a million miles

Then I'd still be where I started

Bread and butter for a smile

Well I sold a million mirrors

In a shop in Alley Way

But I never saw my face

In any window any day

Now they say your folks are telling you

Be a superstar

But I tell you just be satisfied

And stay right where you are

Keep yourself alive

Keep yourself alive

Take you all your time and a money

Keep you satisfied

Well I've loved a million women

In a belladonic haze

And I ate a million dinners

Brought to me on silver trays

Give me ev'rything I need

To feed my body and my soul

And I'll grow a little bigger

Maybe that can be my goal

I was told a million times

Of all the people in my way

How I had to keep on trying

And get better ev'ry day

But if I crossed a million rivers

And I rode a million miles

Then I'd still be where I started

Same as when I started

Keep yourself alive

Keep yourself alive

It'll take you all your time and a money

To keep yourselves alive

Keep yourself alive

Keep yourself alive

It'll take you all your time and a money

Honey you'll survive

Do you think you're better ev'ry day?

No I think I'm two steps nearer to my grave

Keep yourself alive

Keep yourself alive

All you people keep yourself alive

Keep yourself alive

Keep yourself alive

All you people keep yourself alive

Keep yourself alive

Keep yourself alive

Take you all your time and money

Honey you'll survive

Keep yourself alive

Keep yourself alive

All you people keep yourself alive

Take you all your time and money
