Album The Iceman Cometh/Ice on Ice I remember my first love affair Somehow or another the whole darn thing went wrong My mama had some great advice So I thought I'd put it into words of this song, I can still hear her sayin' Boy, oh, I see you're sittin' out there all alone Cryin' your eyes out, 'cause 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, 'cause only the strong survive That's what she said Only the strong survive Only the strong survive Hey, 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 know Wouldn't let her know that she made me feel like a clown There are whole lot of girls lookin' for a good man like you Oh, but you'll never meet 'em if you give up now and say your life is through Then she said Only the strong survive Only the strong survive Hey, you've got to be a man, you've got to take a stand, yeah So I'm telling you right now Only the strong survive Only the strong survive Hey, you've got to be strong, you'd better hold on Don't worry about it Don't you know that things are gonna change? Oh, but you've got to be a man, you've got to take a stand Don't ever feel that, you can make it, baby
