The winner takes all, It's the thrill of one more kill, The last one to fall, will never sacrifice their will!
Don't ever look back, on the world closing in, be on the attack with your wings on the wind, Oh, the games will begin.
And its sweet sweet sweet victory, yeah! It's ours for the taking, it’s ours for the fight. And it's sweet sweet sweet victory, yeah! And the one who's last to fall. The winner takes all.
You don't win no silver, Oh, You only lose the gold, You push with a fever for your time keeps tolling on,
Against all the odds, against all your pain, Your back’s on the wall with no one to blame, Wild hearts won't be tamed.
And it's sweet sweet sweet victory, oh! It's ours for the taking, it’s ours for the fight. And it's sweet sweet sweet victory, And the one who's last to fall. The winner takes all...
And the one who's last to fall.
Sweet sweet sweet victory, yeah! It's ours for the taking, it’s ours for the fight. And it's sweet sweet sweet victory, yeah! And the one who's last to fall. The winner takes all!
The song's initial release date is unknown. Many assume it to have been made during the 1980s due to how it sounds. However, there is some evidence that proves that this song was specifically written for the episode.
This is the second song where SpongeBob sings, but his voice was not provided by Tom Kenny. The first was the Ripped Pants (song).
The song ends after the first chorus in the show version.
SpongeBob's eyes are closed for most of the song, escpecially during the pre-chorus.
Clips of this song has been used in various SpongeBob music videos on YouTube.
