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

´Cause I´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 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!
