Carrie Underwood (Feat. Ludacris) - "The Champion"

Read the lyrics to the song Carrie wrote for The Super Bowl and NBC's coverage of The 2018 Winter Olympics.

I’ll be the last one standing
Two hands in the air, I’m a champion
You’ll be looking up at me when it’s over
I live for the battle, I’m a soldier, yeah
I’m a fighter like Rocky
Put you flat on your back like Ali
Yeah I’m the greatest, I’m stronger
Paid my dues, can’t lose, I’m-a own ya
Been working my whole life
And now it’s do or die

I am invincible, unbreakable, unstoppable, unshakeable
They knock me down, I get up again
I am the champion
You gonna know my name
You can’t hurt me now
I can’t feel the pain
I was made for this
I was born to win
I am the champion

When they write my story
They gonna say that I did it for the glory
But don’t think that I did it for the fame, yeah
I did it for the love of the game, yeah
This is my chance I’m taking
All them old records I’m breaking
All you people watching on the TV
You go ahead and put your bets on me
I’ve been waiting my whole life
To see my name in lights

Repeat Chorus

(Ludacris Rap:)
Born champion


The C is for the courage I possess through the drama
H is for the hurt but it’s all for the honor
A is for my attitude working through the patience
Money comes and goes
The M is for motivation
Gotta stay consistent, the P is to persevere
The I is for integrity, innovative career
The O is optimistic, open and never shut
And the N is necessary cuz I’m never giving up
See they ask me how I did it, I just did it from the heart
Crushing the competition, been doing it from the start
They say that every champion is all about his principles

Repeat Chorus

Yeah (The champion, yeah, surpassed all rivals)
I am the champion, oh, oh, oh (It’s all about who wants it the most, fight for what we believe in, that’s what champions are made of)
I am the champion (Yeah, champion)
