[Intro: 'Otuto Nke Chukwu'] Gi nwa nke chukwu, gini ka ina ekwu N'ihi ihe nile Nke chukwu mere
[Verse 1: Chris Martin] I tried my best to be just like The other boys in school I tried my best to get it right And died at every duel This mountainside is suicide This dream will never work Still the sign upon my headstone, write "A champion of the world"
[Interlude] Oh oh-oh Oh oh-oh-oh oh oh
[Verse 2: Chris Martin] I tried my best to stay alight Fly like a firework I tried my best at taking flight But my rocket ship reversed Oh, referee, don't stop the fight Everyone can see I'm hurt But I'll stand before conquistadors Till I'm champion of the world
[Chorus: Chris Martin, Chris & Will] (When I sail) And when I sail I'm sailing west (Know I might fail) Knowing I might fail But still I'm hoping for the best (In my dreams) And in my dreams Onto my chest She'll pin the colours and say "I wandered the whole wide world but Baby, you're the best"
[Interlude: Chris Martin] Lo lo-lo-lo lo oh Ee-yo-ee-yo-ee-yo-ee-yeah Lo lo-lo-lo lo
[Outro: Chris Martin & Will Champion] So I'm flying on my bicycle Heading upwards from the Earth I am jumping with no parachute Out into the universe I have E.T. on my bicycle Because giving up won't work Now I'm riding on my rocketship And I'm champion of the world
