Living Single (Theme Song) Lyrics

Check, check, check it out
Check, check, check it out
Do what you want, girlfriend, 'cause it's your world

We are living (Ooh)
Single (Hey)
Yes, we're living the single life, yeah
We are living (Hey)
Ooh, and in a '90s kind of world
I'm glad I got my girls

Keep your head up (What?)
Keep your head up (That's right)
Whenever this life get tough (You gotta fight with)
My homegirls standing to my left (and my right)
True blue, (it's tight like glue)

We are living (Hey)
And in a '90s kind of world
I'm glad I got my girls

How to Format Lyrics:

  • Lyrics should be broken down into individual lines
  • Use section headers above different song parts like [Verse], [Chorus], etc.
  • Use italics (<i>lyric</i>) and bold (<b>lyric</b>) to distinguish between different vocalists in the same song part
  • If you don’t understand a lyric, use [?]
