I Play To Win
(Dee Shipman / Roger Webb)

I've got so much going for me
There's so much that I've got to see
There are things that I've got to do
There are dreams that have to come true
The wheel of life begins it's lucky spin
I'm staking my claim in the game
And I play to win

I'm the one who's playing for real
Waiting on each turn of the wheel
For my chance to get up and fly
Spread my wings and take to the sky
A lucky charm will be my next of kin
Success is the name of the game
And I play to win

Step by step
Day by day
I know that I am gonna get there anyway
Don't have the time for hesitating
No debating
There's a whole exciting world just waiting

I have got whatever it takes
I'll provide my only lucky breaks
I know I will make it some day
Look out world, I'm heading your way
The game of life has started
Count me in...........

Look up at the stars and you will see
That the brightest star that shines is me
And that's the only way
That it can ever be
You'll see
Yes, everything begins from here on in
Move out of my way 
I'm starting to play
And I play to win

Step by step
Day by day
I know that I am gonna get there any way
Don't have the time for hesitating
No debating
There's a whole exciting world just waiting

I have got whatever it takes
I'll provide my only lucky breaks
I know I will make it someday
Look out world, I'm heading your way
The game of life has started
Count me in

Look up at the stars and you will see
That the brightest star that shines is me
And that's the only way
That it can ever be
You'll see
Yes, everything begins from here on in

Look up at the stars and you will see
That the brightest star that shines is me
And that's the only way
That it can ever be
You'll see
Yes, everything begins from here on in
Move out of my way
I'm ready to play.............
And I play to win
I play to win.............!
