You say you're leaving; you've shattered my dreams
All of our plans, dear, forgotten it seems
Yes, it had to happen
I'm not surprised, but I'll, I'll survive

Your friends have shown you a much better way
All of my loving you, baby, all of those years ended today
Yes, you go on, darlin'
I'll dry my eyes, but I'll, I'll survive

Go on, may god bless you
It was fun while it was fun
Baby, I hate to lose you
I say I hate to lose you, baby
It's all over; what's done is done

Hey, you go on, darlin', seek your fortune and fame
All your good luck or bad luck
Your friends must take the blame
Oh, I can't beg you no more, baby
I've got too much pride, but I'll, I'll survive

Oh, go on, may god bless you
Oh, it was fun while it was fun
Oh baby, I hate to lose you
I say I hate to lose you, baby
It's all over--what's done is done

Hey, you go on, baby, seek your fortune and fame
All your good, good luck or bad luck
Friends must take the blame
Oh, I can't beg you no more
I've got too much pride, but I'll, I'll survive

Oh, I'll, I'll survive
Baby, I'll survive
