Lyrics of "We Are the Champions":
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 fortuen 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 -
