"  I've paid my dues
   Time after time
   I've done my sentence
   But committed no crime
   And bad mistakes
   I've made a few
   I've had my share of sand kicked in my face
   But I've come through  "

"  I've taken my bows
   And my curtain calls
   You brought me fame and fortune and everything that goes with it
   I thank you all
   But it's been no bed of roses
   No pleasure cruise
   I consider it a challenge before the whole human race
   And I ain't gonna lose  "

 This huge song CAN actually be boiled down to these chords, which the song
 is based around. The chords aren't exactly simple, but this is really just
 the song basically: a verse, a chorus and a little thing in between...

 LYRICS
**********
I've paid my dues
Time after time
I've done my sentence
But committed no crime
And bad mistakes
I've made a few
I've had my share of sand kicked in my face
But I've come through

We are the champions, my friends
And we'll keep on fighting till the end
We are the champions
We are the champions
No time for losers
'Cause we are the champions - of the world

I've taken my bows
And my curtain calls
You brought me fame and fortune and everything that goes with it
I thank you all
But it's been no bed of roses
No pleasure cruise
I consider it a challenge before the whole human race
And I ain't gonna lose
