ONLY THE STRONG SURVIVE (Kenny Gamble / Leon Huff / Jerry Butler) Jerry Butler - 1969 Elvis Presley - 1969 SPOKEN: I remember my first love affair Somehow or another the whole darn thing went wrong My mamma had some great advice So I thought I'd put it into words of this song I can still hear her sayin' it.... Boy, Oh, I see you're sittin' out there all alone Cryin' your eyes out 'cos the woman that you love has gone Oh, there's gonna be, there's gonna be a whole lot of trouble in your life Oh, so listen to me get up off your knees 'cos only the strong survive That's what she said, only the strong survive Only the strong survive, Oh you've got to be strong, you'd better hold on Don't go all around with your head hung down Well I wouldn't let that little girl No, I wouldn't let her know that she made me feel like a clown There's a whole lot a girls lookin' for a good man like you Oh but you'll never meet 'em if you give up now and say that your life is through Yes she said: Only the strong survive, only the strong survive, You've got to be a man, you've got to take a stand Only the strong survive, only the strong survive, Oh, you've got to be strong, you'd better hold on 'Cos only the strong survive Only the strong survive, only the strong survive, Well, you've got to be a man, you've got to take a stand Only the strong survive, only the strong survive
