Bee Gees - Stayin' Alive

Inglês

Stayin' Alive

Well, you can tell by the way I use my walk
I'm a woman's man, no time to talk
Music loud and women warm
I've been kicked around since I was born
But now it's all right, that's okay
And you may look the other way
We can try to understand
The New York Times' effect on man
 
Whether you're a brother or whether you're a mother
You're stayin' alive, stayin' alive
Feel the city breakin' and everybody shakin'
I'm a-stayin' alive, stayin' alive
Ah, ah, ah, ah, stayin' alive, stayin' alive
Ah, ah, ah, ah, stayin' ali-i-i-i-ive
Oh, when you walk
 
Well, now I get low and I get high
And if I can't get either, I really try
Got the wings of heaven on my shoes
I'm a dancin' man, and I just can't lose
You know, it's all right, it's okay
I'll live to see another day
We can try to understand
The New York Times' effect on man
 
Whether you're a brother or whether you're a mother
You're stayin' alive, stayin' alive
Feel the city breakin' and everybody shakin'
I'm a-stayin' alive, stayin' alive
Ah, ah, ah, ah, stayin' alive, stayin' alive
Ah, ah, ah, ah, stayin' ali-i-i-i-ive
Oh
 
Life goin' nowhere, somebody help me
Somebody help me, yeah
Life goin' nowhere, somebody help me, yeah
[I'm stayin' alive]

I have tried to add a video, but no one has worked.

The obscure "New York Times' effect" can be interpreted in many ways.

A rather straightforward explanation is the one from Songfacts:
"Robert Stigwood, who produced Saturday Night Fever, is the one who asked The Bee Gees to write music for the film. Stigwood got the idea for the film from a New York Magazine article about the Brooklyn club scene." (http://www.songfacts.com/detail.php?id=2626)
Somehow "New York Magazine" became "New York Times" for the final lyrics, either by error or because it fit the rhythm better.
So the "New York Times' effect" would be "the changes to social life when clubbing became mainstream".

Other people interpret it as "New York time's effect", i.e. the changes one undergoes from living in the big city.
