I will survive (Snowboarding edition)

Zur Melodie von "I will survive" von Gloria Gaynor

At first I was afraid, I was petrified
Kept thinkin’ I could never stand with my feet fix’d ’n tied
But then I started to push snow
praying „can i do this, lord?“
And I grew fond and I tried how to ride the board.

And now I’m back up on the hill
I just went on the lift to see the great outlook upon the ridge
I should have got an instructor
I should have read what’s on my shelf
If I’d’ve known for just one second it’d be hard to learn myself

Go on now, go hop on the board
Just turn around now cause that’s how you do this sport
Weren’t you the one who said on show I’d never fly
But I scrambled ’till I’d ride low and high

Oh no not I, I will survive,
Oh as long as I know how to stand I know I’ll stay alive
I’ve got all my days to try
I’ve got all my bones to give
And I’ll survive, I will survive, hey hey

It took all the strength I had not to fall and stay,
Kept trying hard to mind the hurdles on my horrid way
And I spend oh so many days
Just felling sorrow in my tighs
I used to cry but now I hold my self up straight

And you see me snowboarding fast
I’m not that dropping shaky person still to try to grasp
And if you feel like dropping in
You can ride here next to me
But I’m boarding all my time no one’s keeping up with me
