It helps if you sing it, just sayin’… Here’s the tune (But you really should know it already)
At first I was afraid, I was petrified
Kept thinking I could never live without home by my side
But then I spent so many nights thinking how us two were wrong
And I chose Hopkins, so I could finally get along!
But now I’m back from Freshman year,
I just drove in to find you here with the same look, where’s engineers?
Should I have done a summer course?
Is Baltimore the place for me?
Whatever folks, now I’ve got time to watch old reruns of Glee!
My friends said “Go!” I walked out the door,
I took the train down for a fun weekend in B’more!
It was like Hop and I had never said goodbye,
We made apple crumble, it tasted just like pie!
Oh, well I, I will survive!
As long as I’ve got Horcruxes I know I’ll stay alive
I’ve got best friends here who care, I’ve still got amazing hair
And I’ll survive, I will survive! (hey hey!)
It took all the strength I had to ace every class,
The hours I spent reading, Oh! my tired a**!
But I lovingly look back on nights I felt sorry for myself
Because with that work, I can now hold my head up high!
And you see me, somebody new
I’m not that dorky little person (ish) who’s still missin’ you.
And I’m saving all my calories for the FFC!
Why can’t I go, around campus?
Being a tour guide, man that’s something that I miss!
What should I do these next two months, with no dorm and no things?
Because I, I will survive!
As long as I know I’ll return, I know I’ll stay alive
‘Cuz I’ve got three more years to live, and I’ve got so much more to give
And I’ll survive, I will survive, oh!
