    I just want to celebrate another day of livin'
    I just want to celebrate another day of life
    I put my faith in the people
    But the people let me down
    So I turned the other way
    And I carry on, anyhow

    That's why I'm telling you
    I just want to celebrate, yeah, yeah
    Another day of living, yeah
    I just want to celebrate another day of life
    Had my hand on the dollar bill
    And the dollar bill flew away
    But the sun is shining down on me
    And it's here to stay

    That's why I'm telling you
    I just want to celebrate, yeah, yeah
    Another day of living, yeah
    I just want to celebrate another day of livin'
    I just want to celebrate another day of life

    Don't let it all get you down, no, no
    Don't let it turn you around and around and around, no

    Well, I can't be bothered with sorrow
    And I can't be bothered with hate, no, no
    I'm using up the time but feeling fine, every day
    That's why I'm telling you I just want to celebrate
    Oh, yeah
    I just want to celebrate another day
    Oh, I just want to celebrate another day of livin'
    I just want to celebrate another day of life

    Don't let it all get you down, no, no
    Don't let it turn you around and around, and around, and around
    And around, and round, and round
    Round, round, round, round
    Round, round, round, round
    Round, round, round, round
    Don't go round

    I just want to celebrate
    I just want to celebrate
    Well, I just want to celebrate
    Said I just want to celebrate (celebrate)
    I just want to celebrate (I want to celebrate)
    I just want to celebrate (I got to celebrate)
    I just want to celebrate Writer/s: DINO FEKARIS, NICK ZESSES
