Michel Aoun's Version of "I Will Survive"

Yesterday, Michel Aoun said: “The problem is not over electing a certain person as president of the republic but rather over 'electing the republic' and the survival of the republic...”
What he really meant was:

"In Baabda I was afraid I was petrified 
Kept thinking I could never live without the republic by my side 
But in Paris I spent so many nights 
Thinking how Assad did me wrong 
And I grew strong 
And I learned how to get along with his son 
And so now I am back 
from outer space 
I just walked in to find Hassan here with that fun look upon his face 
I should have allied with his stupid flock 
I should have made you leave Baabda's keys 
If I had known for just one second Geagea be back to bother me 
Go on now go, walk out the door 
Just turn around now 
'Cause you're not welcoming me anymore 
Weren't you the one who went to Sleiman and said bye 
Do you think I'd crumble 
Did you think I'd lay down and die?
Oh no not I. I will survive 
Oh as long as I know how to lie 
I know Gebran will stay alive 
and I've got all my life to live 
I've got you Republic and you'll give and I'll survive 
I will survive! Hey, Hey!"

Sorry Aoun but I enjoy Gloria Gaynor's original version of "I will survive" much more than your weekly desperate "I want to become president" speeches.
