Written by dennis deyoung, charles lofrando
Lead vocals by james young

You've got to be strong
If you're going to make it baby
You've got to stand tall
If you're going to survive

So just take my hand
And I'll show you how to feel alive
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah

Winner take all
That's the way I play it
Playing my cards as the world goes by
Winner take all
That's the way that I get high

You live your own life
Always needing someone baby
Then I appear to answer your call
Together I know
We can ride the highway past them all
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah

Winner take all
That's the way I play it
Playing my cards as the world goes by
Winner take all
That's the way that I get high
High high

Winner take all
That's the way I play it
Playing my cards as the world goes by
Winner take all
That's the way that I get high
