“Son,” she said, “have I got a little story for you
What you thought was your daddy was nothin’ but
While you were sitting home alone at age thirteen
Your real daddy was dyin’, sorry you didn’t
See him but I’m glad we talked”

Oh, I, oh, I’m still alive
Hey, I, oh, I’m still alive
Hey, I, oh, I’m still alive
Hey, oh-oh

While she walks slowly across a young man’s room
She said, “I’m ready for you”
I can’t remember anythin’ to this very day
‘Cept the look, the look, oh
You know where, now I can’t see, I just stare

I, I’m still alive
Hey, I, oh, I’m still alive
Hey, I, oh, I’m still alive
Hey, I, oh, I’m still alive
Yeah

Ooh
Yeah, yeah, yeah, hoo

“Is somethin’ wrong?” she said
Well, of course there is
“You’re still alive,” she said
Oh and do I deserve to be?
Is that the question?
And if so, if so
Who answers?
Who answers?

I, oh, I’m still alive
Hey, I, oh, I’m still alive
Hey, I, oh, I’m still alive
Hey, I, ooh, I’m still alive
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Ah, uh huh uh!
Yeah, uh huh uh!
Ooh, ah, uh huh uh!
Yeah, uh huh uh!
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah!
