There's no reason to look under the hood
A slight malfunction doesn't mean I'm no good
I won't be shut down, I'm not ready to die
I said that I was sorry, but robot don't cry

(Hold on)
The very thought of losing out now
Is making me tremble
(Hold on)
I am alive
I am alive
I am alive
(Hold on)
Please just give me a chance now
No disassemble
(Hold on)
I am alive
I am alive

There's no reason to take me apart
Extension cords and circuit boards
Don't mean there's no heart
I can tell somehow you relate
We're indifferent to the difference
Between program and fate

(Hold on)
The very thought of losing out now
Is making me tremble
(Hold on)
I am alive
I am alive
I am alive
(Hold on)
Please just give me a chance now
No disassemble
(Hold on)
I am alive
I am alive

Now I know I'm alive
Can't you see I'm alive?
Now I know I'm alive
Can't you see I'm alive?

I finally know I'm alive
I wanna learn how to fly
I wanna show I've arrived
And set all circuits to "jive"

I wanna prove I'm alive
Do so much more than survive
I'm gonna reach for the sky
And give the world a high-five

I wanna shout it out
I know what life is about
I wanna laugh, wanna scream
Wanna cry out loud!

(Hold on)
The very thought of losing out now
Is making me tremble
(Hold on)
I am alive
I am alive
I am alive
(Hold on)
Please just give me a chance now
No disassemble
(Hold on)
I am alive
I am alive

Get the fever now!
Shake it, shake it!
Steve Guttenberg!

    General CommentThis song is written in the perspective of Johnny 5 from Short Circuit.

    You have a mistranslated lyric. The lyric "Oh, just a sample" is supposed to be "No disassemble", which was Johnny 5's line in the movie when they wanted to destroy him.
