They say I'm somebody so I try to live up to the name
But I'm just not that good at dealin' with fortune and fame
I've made mistakes, more than I care to recall
But one way or another I always get over the fall.

I'm a survivor, I've paid my dues
I wrote the book on hard knocks and I've bathed in the blues
I've been the feature on the six o'clock news
Well, I'm a survivor, dancin' the blues.

Sometimes I'd wonder how I've managed to live through it all
Yes, I've spent a lifetime of living with my back to the wall
The records will show that I've had my share of regrets
But as long as I'm breathing you ain't heard the last of me yet.

I'm a survivor, I've paid my dues
Doing my best with the hand that I drew
Just playing the part Lord, I couldn't refuse
Yeah, I'm a survivor win, draw or lose.

Yeah, I'm a survivor win, draw or lose
