Kool & The Gang - Victory Lyrics

People get ready it's time to show
What you got
Players take your place it's only
One way to the top
You must feel the victory release that
Energy and ride like the wind
With fire in your eyes shake those
Butterflies and do the best you can
Victory Victory let the party begin
Victory victory let's do it again

You are the best, you seem to stand
Out from the rest
Your intentions to be more than a honorable mention
You must feel that victory, release that
Energy and ride like the wind
Fire in your eyes shake those
Butterflies, go ahead and go
For the win now
Victory victory let the party begin
Victory victory everybody can win

'Cause it's the same way in life
Same way in life
Inside the tunnel see the light
- See the light
The perfect balance you must find
It's the same way in life
Victory victory victory

Victory-sweet-can you feel It?
Victory sweet, so sweet, so sweet

There's only one way to the top if You really want it
You can never stop pushin' for the
Victory-go ahead
Players take your places-go ahead
Feel that victory release that energy
So sweet to the top-go ahead, go ahead

Players take your places to the top Victory

Kool & The Gang Victory Comments
  1. Patrick Irvin

    I saw them last year, not all the original members but , with there substitutions, they were the best “Taste of Colorado” concert I have ever seen. I’ve been going there for forty years!

  2. Ezra Shachar

    great song

  3. Ronnie Acerra

    Would love to see a boxer come out to this song instead of that god awful shit they come out with today. Now I have nothing against Hip- Hop . I was there from jump, Boogie Down Productions, Melly Mel, Houdini , LL, Run , Public Enemy, the movement! Shit is just mainstream today that’s why rock is creeping back. Say sometime ! Rep something besides your dry ass self!

    Kool & The Gang made great music that you could dance to, and everyone could listen to it. The messages in their songs were always positive and classy.

  75. Bob Cummings

    Everybody still wants VICTORY!!!! I sure do!!

  76. grosskopf2

    I have to say that if I was the coach and my player tries to do a 360 on a game winning breakaway and missed like that I would have either benched for the rest of the season or ran him after the game until he puked up everything he ate the last to days

  77. Robert Cummings

    All these 80's jams are still JAMS to me in 2018! I jammed to them back then and still do!

  78. Robert Cummings

    This marked JT Taylor's last lp with KATG! What a VICTORY eh?? Still a jam to me!!

  79. jazmeen Jake

    Damn! JT was so sexy and hott🔥🔥🔥

  80. Marcus Rob

    I always got the impression that other 80s funk bands (and funk music loyalists) sorta wrote Kool & The Gang off as "pop sellouts" (not my words nor my opinion), due to them seeing so many of their singles do well on the pop charts during the 80s (through 1987). As big as bands like The Gap Band, Zapp, Midnight Star, Starpoint, Skyy, Con Funk Shun, the S.O.S. Band, One Way, and Cameo all were in the 80s, Kool and the Gang were the only ones consistently putting out singles that did well on BOTH the pop and R&B charts (as well as the Adult Contemporary chart). Some of it may have been influenced by the labels, but I know that's something that probably irked some of their peers and contemporaries.

  81. Usman Ahmad

    sweet music

  82. Dzera think

    better than michael jackson!!!

    Yasin özkan

    Dzera think hell no.no way.MJ is always gonna be better than Kool!
