OPENER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
I got rice cookin' in the microwave
Got a three day beard I don't plan to shave
And it's a goofy thing but I just gotta say
Hey I'm doin' alright

Allemande and weave
And it's a great day to be alive
I know the sun's still shinin' when I close my eyes
There's some hard times in the neighborhood
But why can't everyday be just this good


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads square thru, four hands you go
Find that corner girl and you dosado
Swing thru, boys run, bend the line
Do the right & left thru
Pass the ocean there, recycle round
Swing that girl and promenade on down
*It's neither drink nor drug induced
No I'm just doin' alright


ALTERNATE LYRICS

**Might even grow me a Fu Man Chu
Yeah, I'm just doin' alright


MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Four ladies chain across that ring
Turn chain them right back home I sing
Join hands circle left go round
Allemande left, weave the ring
And it's a great day to be alive
I know the sun's still shinin' when I close my eyes
There's some hard times in the neighborhood
But why can't everyday be just this good

I'm doin' all right

It's A Great Day To Be Alive
 
 

I got rice cooking in the microwave
I got a three day beard I don't plan to shave
It's a goofy thing but I just gotta say, hey
I'm doing alright

Yeah, I think I'll make me some home-made soup
I'm feeling pretty good and that's the truth
It's neither drink nor drug induced, no
I'm just doing alright

And it's a great day to be alive
I know the sun's still shining when I close my eyes
There's some hard times in the neighborhood
But why can't every day be just this good?

It's been fifteen years since I left home
I said good luck to every seed I'd sown
Gave it my best and then I left it alone
I hope they're doing alright

Now I look in the mirror and what do I see?
A lone wolf there staring back at me
Long in the tooth but harmless as can be
Lord, I guess he's doin' alright

And it's a great day to be alive
I know the sun's still shining when I close my eyes
There's some hard times in the neighborhood
But why can't every day be just this good?

Sometimes it's lonely, sometimes it's only me
And the shadows that fill this room
Sometimes I'm falling, desperately calling
Howling at the moon, ah-ooh, ah-ooh

Well, I might go get me a new tattoo
Or take my old Harley for three day cruise
Might even grow me a Fu Manchu

And it's a great day to be alive
I know the sun's still shining when I close my eyes
There's some hard times in the neighborhood
But why can't every day be just this good?

And it's a great day to be alive
I know the sun's still shining when I close my eyes
There's some hard times in the neighborhood
But why can't every day be just this good?
Ah-ooh, oh yeah!

Lyrics by Darrell Scott.
