Smile though your heart is aching
Smile even though it's breaking
When there are clouds in the sky, you'll get by
If you smile through your fear and sorrow
Smile and maybe tomorrow
You'll see the sun come shining through for you

Light up your face with gladness
Hide every trace of sadness
Although a tear may be ever so near
That's the time you must keep on trying
Smile, what's the use of crying?
You'll find that life is still worthwhile.
No time for losers 'Cause we are the champions of the world

I've paid my dues - Time after time
I've done my sentence But committed no crime
And bad mistakes - I've made a few
I've had my share of sand kicked in my face
But I've come through

We are the champions - my friends
And we'll keep on fighting - till the end

We are the champions - We are the champions
No time for losers 'Cause we are the champions of the world

I've taken my bows And my curtain calls
You brought me fame and fortune
and everything that goes with it
I thank you all
But it's been no bed of roses - No pleasure cruise
I consider it a challenge before the whole human race
And I ain't gonna lose

We are the champions - my friends
And we'll keep on fighting - till the end

We are the champions - We are the champions

No time for losers 'Cause we are the champions of the world
