Full Lyrics

The cup of life This is the one Now it is time Don't ever stop Push it along Gotta be strong Right to the top Como Cain y Able Es un partido cruel Tienes que pelear Por una estrella Consigue con honor La copa del amor Para sobrevivir y luchar poe ella Luchar por ella (yeah) Do you really want it (yeah) Here we go! Ale, ale, ale! Go, go, go! Ale, ale! Arriba va! El mundo esta de pie Go, go, go! Ale, ale, ale! La vida es Competicion Hay que sonar Ser campeon La copa es La bendicion La ganaras Go, go, go! And when you feel the heat The world is at your feet No one can hold you down If you really want it Just steal your destiny Right from the hands of fate Reach for the cup of life ´Cause your name is on it Do you really want it (yeah) Do you really want it (yeah) Tu y yo! Ale, ale, ale! Go, go, go! Ale, ale, ale! Tonight's the night we're gonna celebrate The cup of life! Ale, ale, ale!
