ABBA - The Winner Takes It All

Английский

The Winner Takes It All

I don’t wanna 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 wanna 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 then 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

The correct fading out background choir is:
(So the winner takes it all
And the loser has to fall
Throw a dice, cold as ice
Way down here, someone dear
Takes it all, has to fall
And it's plain, why complain?)

Additionally I would set this also into brackets, because it isn't the main lyrics anymore... Regular smile

Note to translators: in "the likes of me abide", "abide" means "remain" (spectators of the show), not "obey" (which would be "abide *by* (the rules)").
The lines mean "those who are like me only remain spectators, unable to make a difference".
