song lyrics

I got this in my email from several sources today and just wanted to share:

Originally written and produced by Freddie Perren and Dino Fekaris
Originally performed by Gloria Gaynor
Mercilessly altered with apologies by Natalie Criss

First I was afraid, I was petrified.
Kept thinking I could never teach , 'Cause I'm not certified.
But we spent so many nights
Re-teaching homework that was wrong.
I grew strong, so now I teach my kids at home!
We learn 'bout math and outer space.
I just kept on despite the fear with a big smile across my face.
I bought a set of Base Ten blocks.
I bought books with answer keys.
My parents think we're nuts,
but they don't even bother me

Come on, let's go walk out the door.
We're on the road now, 'cause we're not home much anymore
My friends would laugh and say we'd be unsocialized.
I heard one mumble that I'd give up by July.
Oh no, not I! I will survive!
As long as I know how to read
I know we'll be alright.
I've got all my life to learn. I've got energy to burn.
and I'll survive. I will survive.

It took all the strength I had not to fall apart.
Decided to attend a play date at the local park,
and I met oh so many moms who offered eagerly to help.
They used to cry. Now they hold their heads up high,
and so do we! My kids are cool!
They're not those chained up little people stuck inside at school.
So if you feel like dropping by and just expect us to be free
you'd better call ahead first 'cause we're probably busy!
