Be Happy To Be Alive© lyrics - Country Folk Song

(Verse 1)
The praries are floodin', the earthquakes a comin'
Three tremors were felt on the west coast yesterday
The smog in Torona and all the storms on the east coast
Makes me wonder where its safe to be
Where I can live and be free
As free as the birds up in the trees

(Chorus)
Be like an eagle, so proud and regal
Do what it takes, to survive
And be happy to be alive

(Verse 2)
The salmon are running, the blackberries have ripened
It's time to harvest in our blessings
But the fires are burning are forests to ashes
I heard its all from global warmin'
But I know as I live near the sea, I can always go fishing

(Chorus)
Be like an eagle, so proud and regal
Do what it takes, to survive
And be happy to be alive

(Guitar and/or Harmonica Solo)

(Verse 3)
The wars in the world, make my blood curl
Why can't we all just live in harmony
Take from the rich, give to the poor
It all sounds so simple to me
As long as there are fish in the sea
There shouldn't be anymore starving

(Chorus)
Be like an eagle, so proud and regal
Do what it takes, to survive
And be happy to be alive
Yes, being happy to be alive [2x]
