    Lyrics

    I see you sittin' there all alone
    Crying your eyes out
    While everything's going wrong
    You know there's gonna be
    A whole lot of trouble in your life
    Listen to me, get up off your knees
    'Cause only the strong survive

    Only the strong survive
    Only the strong survive
    Hey, you gotta be strong
    You gotta hold on
    I said don't give up, no don't

    I said don't go around
    With your head looking down
    don't you let'em make you feel like a clown
    There's a lot of opportunity
    Out there just waiting for you
    But you'll never succeed if you've given up
    And say your life is through
    Listen this minute what I'm tellin' you

    Only the strong survive
    Only the strong survive
    Hey, you gotta be strong
    Gotta hold on
    You gotta be a man, take a stand

    Only the strong survive
    Only the strong survive

    Weak fall by the wayside
    You gotta hold on
    You gotta keep on, keep on
    Keep on, keep on, keep on gettin' on

    'Cause only the strong survive
    Only the strong survive
    Weak fall by the wayside
    You gotta be strong
    You gotta hold on
    You gotta keep goin' on

    Only the strong survive
    Only the strong survive
    Weak fall by the wayside
    You gotta be a man
    You gotta take a stand

    Get up, set your body in motion
    You know the strong survive
    Wake up and get your education
    So you can keep your family alive
    Get away from negative situations
    It can only bring you a lot of frustrations
    'Cause only the strong survive

    Only the strong survive
    Only the strong survive
    Hey, you gotta be strong
    Gotta hold on
    You gotta be a man, take a stand
