jonesloonybin Posted August 7, 2008 Share Posted August 7, 2008 I Will Survive (the first year of homeschooling) 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 Â´Cause IÂ´m not certified. But we spent so many nights Reteaching homework that was wrong. I grew strong, so now I teach my kids at home! We study 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 weÂ´re nuts, but they donÂ´t even bother me Come on, letÂ´s go walk out the door. WeÂ´re on the road now, 'cause weÂ´re not home much anymore My friends would laugh and say weÂ´d be unsocialized. I heard one mumble that IÂ´d give up by July. Oh no, not I! I will survive! As long as I know how to read I know weÂ´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! TheyÂ´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 youÂ´d better call ahead first Â´cause weÂ´re probably busy!
