Song Lyric Sunday/Takes

I know it’s Monday and this is a day late, but better late than never.  These weekends go by so quickly and I was out all day, both days.  Then last night I remembered Song Lyric Sunday.  This theme was pretty easy for me when it comes to songs & music.  I picked out one from a group from back in the day.  They were one of my fav’s !!  ABBA and my song for this Song Lyric Sunday…..drum roll please……..”The Winner Takes it All.”  Enjoy ❤

The Winner Takes It All
I don’t want to talk
About the things we’ve gone through
Though it’s hurting me
Now it’s history
I’ve played all my cards
And that’s what you’ve done too
Nothing more to say
No more ace to play
The winner takes it all
The loser standing small
Beside the victory
That’s her destiny
I was in your arms
Thinking I belonged there
I figured it made sense
Building me a fence
Building me a home
Thinking I’d be strong there
But I was a fool
Playing by the rules
The gods may throw a dice
Their minds as cold as ice
And someone way down here
Loses someone dear
The winner takes it all
The loser has to fall
It’s simple and it’s plain
Why should I complain
But tell me does she kiss
Like I used to kiss you?
Does it feel the same
When she calls your name?
Somewhere deep inside
You must know I miss you
But what can I say
Rules must be obeyed
The judges will decide
The likes of me abide
Spectators of the show
Always staying low
The game is on again
A lover or a friend
A big thing or a small
The winner takes it all
I don’t want to talk
If it makes you feel sad
And I understand
You’ve come to shake my hand
I apologize
If it makes you feel bad
Seeing me so tense
No self-confidence
But you see
The winner takes it all
The winner takes it all
So the winner takes it all
And the the loser has to fall
Throw a dice, cold as ice
Way down here, someone dear
Takes it all, has to fall
It seems plain to me
Songwriters: Benny Goran Bror Andersson / Bjoern K Ulvaeus
I didn’t see the movie Mama Mia, but I really should because I was huge fan of ABBA back in the day.  Have a great week blogger’s, Blessings ❤

  1. I saw the new Mama Mia movie with my daughter and then went and got the Abba’s Greatest Hits CD from the library to add to my music collection.

    • I remember you talking about it. I’ve got to watch it!! I really love them. I saw the musical (I’m addicted to musical theater 🎭). Have a great week Mz. Janet 🍂🍁🍂🍁🍂. Getting ready for the Holidays and our road trip out east to see our guys. Hockey Blackhawks will be in DC when we’re out there… Woo Hoo. Blessings 🙏🏻
