  • Uh-oh, running out of breath, but I
    Oh, I, I got stamina
    Uh-oh, running now, I close my eyes
    Well, oh, I got stamina
    And uh-oh, I see another mountain to climb
    But I, I, I got stamina
    Uh-oh, I need another lover, be mine
    Cause I, I, I got stamina

    Don't give up, I won't give up
    Don't give up, no no no
    Don't give up, I won't give up
    Don't give up, no no no

    I'm free to be the greatest, I'm alive
    I'm free to be the greatest here tonight, the greatest
    The greatest, the greatest alive
    The greatest, the greatest alive

    Well, uh-oh, running out of breath, but I
    Oh, I, I got stamina
    Uh-oh, running now, I close my eyes
    But, oh oh, I got stamina
    And oh yeah, running through the waves of love
    But I, I got stamina
    And oh yeah, I'm running and I've just enough
    And uh-oh, I got stamina

    Don't give up, I won't give up
    Don't give up, no no no
    Don't give up, I won't give up
    Don't give up, no no no

    I'm free to be the greatest, I'm alive
    I'm free to be the greatest here tonight, the greatest
    The greatest, the greatest alive
    The greatest, the greatest alive (oh oh)

    Oh-oh, I got stamina (ooh hoo ooh)
    Oh-oh, I got stamina (ooh hoo ooh)
    Oh-oh, I got stamina (ooh hoo ooh)
    Oh-oh, I got stamina (ooh hoo)

    Ay, I am the truth
    Ay, I am the wisdom of the fallen, I'm the youth
    Ay, I am the greatest
    Ay, this is the proof
    Ay, I work hard, pray hard, pay dues, ay
    I transform with pressure, I'm hands-on with effort
    I fell twice before, my bounce back was special
    Letdowns'll get you, and the critics will test you
    But the strong'll survive, another scar may bless you, ah

    Don't give up (no no), I won't give up (no no)
    Don't give up, no no no (nah)
    Don't give up, I won't give up
    Don't give up, no no no

    I'm free to be the greatest, I'm alive
    I'm free to be the greatest here tonight, the greatest
    The greatest, the greatest alive (don't give up, don't give up, don't give up, no no no)
    The greatest, the greatest alive (don't give up, don't give up, don't give up, no no no)

    The greatest, the greatest alive (don't give up, don't give up, don't give up, no no no)
    The greatest, the greatest alive (don't give up, don't give up, don't give up, no no no)
    The greatest, the greatest alive (don't give up, don't give up, don't give up, no no no)
    The greatest, the greatest alive (I got stamina)
    The greatest, the greatest alive (I got stamina)
    The greatest, the greatest alive (I got stamina) Writer/s: Blair Mackichan, Greg Kurstin, Kendrick Lamar, Sia Furler
