Lyrics Post: “The Champion”

This song is the first one on a playlist my wife created to get fired up.

Mission Accomplished, I’ll say that.  Our kids love the music, and so do I. Our oldest said recently, “Mom, these songs have a lot of power…”, or something like that.

Yes honey, YES THEY DO.  And this one kicks it off…

The Champion by Carrie Underwood, featuring Ludacris;

Lyricists:  Brett James, Carrie Underwood, Chris DeStefano, Christopher Bridges

I’ll be the last one standing

Two hands in the air, I’m a champion

You’ll be looking up at me when it’s over

I live for the battle, I’m a soldier, yeah

I’m a fighter like Rocky

Put you flat on your back like Ali

Yeah, I’m the greatest, I’m stronger

Paid my dues, can’t lose, Imma own ya, ay

I’ve been working my whole life

And now it’s do or die

I am invincible, unbreakable

Unstoppable, unshakeable

They knock me down, I get up again

I am the champion

You’re gonna know my name

You can’t hurt me now

I can’t feel the pain

I was made for this, yeah, I was born to win

I am the champion

When they write my story

They’re gonna say that I did it for the glory

But don’t think that I did it for the fame, yeah

I did it for the love of the game, yeah

And this is my chance I’m taking

All them old records I’m breaking

All you people watching on the TV

You go ahead and put your bets on me, ay

I’ve been waiting my whole life

To see my name in lights

I am invincible, unbreakable

Unstoppable, unshakeable

They knock me down, I get up again

I am the champion

You’re gonna know my name

You can’t hurt me now

I can’t feel the pain

I was made for this, yeah, I was born to win

I am the champion, oh

Born champion, Luda

The C is for the courage I possess through the drama

H is for the hurt but it’s all for the honor

A is for my attitude working through the patience

Money comes and goes so the M is for motivation

Gotta stay consistent, the P is to persevere

The I is for integrity, innovative career

The O is optimistic, open and never shut

And the N is necessary ’cause I’m never giving up

See they ask me how I did it, I just did it from the heart

Crushing the competition, been doing it from the start

They say that every champion is all about his principles

Carrie

I am invincible, unbreakable

Unstoppable, unshakeable

They knock me down, I get up again

I am the champion

You’re gonna know my name

You can’t hurt me now

I can’t feel the pain

I was made for this, yeah, I was born to win

I am the champion

I’m the champion, yeah

Surpassed all rivals

It’s all about who wants it the most (I am the champion)

Fight for what we believe in

That’s what champions are made of

I am the champion
