(Gamble - Huff - Butler)


I remember my first love affair
Somehow or another the whole darn thing went wrong
My mamma had some great advice
So I thought I'd put it into words of this song
I can still hear her sayin' it

Boy, Oh, I see you're sittin' out there all alone
Cryin' your eyes out
'cos the woman that you love has gone
Oh, there's gonna be, there's gonna be
a whole lot of trouble in your life
Oh, so listen to me get up off your knees
'cos only the strong survive
That's what she said, only the strong survive

Only the strong survive,
Oh you've got to be strong, you'd better hold on
Don't go all around with your head hung down
Well I wouldn't let that little girl
No, I wouldn't let her know
that she made me feel like a clown
There's a whole lot a girls
lookin' for a good man like you
Oh but you'll never meet 'em if you give up now
and say that your life is through
Yes she said: Only the strong survive,
only the strong survive,
You've got to be a man, you've got to take a stand

Only the strong survive, only the strong survive,
Oh, you've got to be strong, you'd better hold on
'Cos only the strong survive
Only the strong survive, only the strong survive,
Well, you've got to be a man, you've got to take a stand
Only the strong survive, only the strong survive
