I will survive – ‘ReKindled’ version

Author Carol Wyer

I will survive – ‘ReKindled’ version.’

Dedicated to the team at Indies Unlimited who have guided me through the maze of Google Plus, Stumble On, Diggit, Twitter and Facebook to mention a few of the tutorial subjects that have helped me become a social networking genius.

At first I was afraid
I was petrified
Kept typing promo emails
With wine gums by my side
And then I spent so many nights
Thinking I was going wrong
But I grew strong
And I learned how to get along
 
Thanks to this site
In cyber space
I signed up to find some help
And found some clever folk who’re ace
I should have checked them out before
I should have read all helpful posts
If I’ve have known for just one second
They were such accommodating hosts
 
So thanks to Hise
And KS Brooks
I have recently
Learned to pimp my fellow author’s books
Weren’t they the ones who tried to tutor me, oh my!
Did you think I would Stumble
Did you think I’d fall down and cry?
Oh no, not I
 
I will survive
Oh, as long as I have my laptop
I know I’ll stay online
I’ve got lots of likes, oh look
On my page now on Facebook
And I’ll survive
I will survive, hey hey.
 
It took all the strength I had
Not to fall apart
Kept trying hard to understand
Tech lessons and all that craft
And I spent oh so many nights
Just struggling with their tips
I used to sigh
But now I hold my head up high
 
And you see me
Somebody new
I’m not that confused aged person
Now I’m feeling ‘phew!’
I can tweet loud like a crow
I can share with all my mates*
And now I know how to promote
So many peeps in cyber space.
 
Come on and try
For goodness sake
Get mingling with us
You won’t make more mistakes
Weren’t you the agent who tried to break me with ‘goodbye’
Did you think I’d crumble?
Did you think I’d lay down and cry?
Oh no, not I
 
I will survive
Oh, as long as I have my laptop
I know I’ll stay online
I’ve got lots of likes, oh look
On my page now on Facebook
And I’ll survive
I will survive
I will survive…

*mates – British slang for ‘friends’

Apologies to Gloria Gaynor but just be thankful I didn’t post a YouTube video of me singing this.

Want to sing along? You can!

    1. Rosanne – thank you very much. I think we should all video ourselves singing it and get a montage made. Hmmm I might investigate that further.

  1. Oh pure bloody genius! I used to love that song back in the Jurassic but I love it even more now.

    I nominate 'I will survive' as the Indies Unlimited theme song 😀 Must be a few of you who can sing. Go on! For the good of all indies everywhere… make it happen 😉

    1. Meeks – I am completely behind this idea as long as I get to stand at the back of the class and mime like I used to at school assemblies. I think we should adopt it as our anthem and sing it out loud.

  2. Melissa – making people smile is my 'raison d'etre'. (not to be confused with a 'pain aux raisin'. Glad you are smiling. x

  3. Hi leetle Carol. Good to be able to read some of your humour again and your words to Gloria Gaynor's song really did make me smile! It's always been one of my favourite songs. Glad to see you haven't lost your touch ! Eeeek!

    1. Glad you are here you naughty minx! Hope this has made you feel better. I hope Inever lose my touch…my mind probably, but my touch….heaven forbid!

    1. Thank you Laurie. Oh yes, wine gums. I now have midget gems which work quite well but don't have the same kick! My dentist hates me 🙂

  4. I second Meeks! Absolute stroke of genius; I came to work in a foul mood and that just really cheered me up!

    You know those promo videos for Bad Book? Can’t you just see Stephen, Kat and Dan singing these lyrics giving it the 70s disco moves… Ha ha, I’m still chuckling…

    1. Oh dear I have tears running down my face now. They would be brilliant. Could Dan and Stephen wear tight lycra suits like Boney M used to – just to add the finishing touch?
