You don't know you're winnin'
Unless you know the score
You can't tell you're losin'
Unless you feel the agony
Then you know what conquers defeat

Hey you don't know you're winnin'
Brother, unless you know the score
You can't tell you're losin'
Unless you feel the agony
Then you know what conquers defeat

Say, "Can't win 'em all, won't lose 'em all"
It's like you win some and then you lose some
Lose some and then you win some
But you know what conquers defeat
Conquers defeat yea, conquers defeat

Say, "The competition higher", nah guh gi yu nuh blie
We thinking about the youths dem
Youths from longer time
We thinking about the youths dem
Youth longer time and oh, said "The competition high"
Nah guh pass unuh by

Can't win 'em all, won't lose 'em all
Is like you win some and then you lose some
Lose some brother, win some
Then you know, hey it's trouble on the road

Said, "It conquers defeat", what conquers defeat?
I said, "It conquers defeat", it conquers defeat
Brother it conquers defeat, yes sister it conquers defeat
Hey it conquers defeat
Yes, then you know it conquers defeat
Then you know, it conquers defeat
