  • Back in the days of the 33 and 45
    First time I remember feelin' alive
    Playin' like a'ringin' a bell 'n' I learned it off the radio
    Sure it was only mama's broom but I was strummin' like a fool
    A true believer till the day I die
    If you'd a plugged me in, in front of all my friends
    I would'a set the livin' room on fire

    I was alive
    Alive 'n' Kickin'
    Like a time bomb tickin'
    Headed for the Hullaballoo
    There were no big gigs in sight
    No bright white-hot spotlight
    But everybody knew that I was Alive 'n' Kickin'

    Got in a battle of the bands when I stole my big brother's guitar
    Let me tell you, that'll never get you far
    2000 Overnights later 'n' I'm still not on the radio

    Got a new Best Friend
    He was more than Sittin' In
    'N' we were makin' our mark on the road
    Our regalia'd hit Full Sail
    'N' we were trapped into the Mother Lode

    We was alive
    Alive 'n' Kickin'
    Like a time-bomb tickin'
    On the cover of the Rollin' Stone
    As far as we could see
    It was the way it was meant to be
    The whole world knew that we was
    Alive 'n' Kickin'

    It's been miles 'n' miles
    Still Alive
    And pickin'

    Now I'm in the daze of the downloadin' digital fights
    Bit by bit, byte by byte
    But everybody says it's music 'cause they hear it on the radio

    'N' when I hit the stage I'm gonna rattle your cage
    I still remember how to howl at the moon
    And I can carry the load whether I'm on the road
    Or jus' appearing in my living room

    'Cause I am alive
    Alive 'n' Kickin'
    Like a time-bomb tickin'
    This boy's ready to blow

    Don't need to tell you why
    I'm gonna love to do it 'til the day I die
    Everybody's gonna know that I
    Am Alive 'n' Kickin'

    We been rockin' since '73
    And just between you 'n' me
    You better believe that we
    Are alive
    Alive 'n' Kickin'
