Survivor/I Will Survive is a mash-up song which is featured in the eighth episode of the third season, Hold on to Sixteen. The song is composed of Survivor, originally sung by Destiny's Child, and I Will Survive, originally sung by Gloria Gaynor, and is performed by The Troubletones at Sectionals in 2011. It is their last performance as a group, since it was disbanded after losing Sectionals to the New Directions. However, Will and Rachel agree to let The Troubletones perform once in every competition that remains.

Lyrics

Santana (with The Troubletones harmonizing):
At first I was afraid, I was petrified,
Kept thinkin' I could never live without you by my side,
But then I spent so many nights thinkin' how you did me wrong,
And I grew strong, and I learned how to get along

Mercedes:
And so you're back,
From outer space,
I just walked in to find you here with that sad look upon your face,
I should've changed that stupid lock,
I should've made you leave your key,
If I had known for just one second you'd be back to bother me

Santana:
Oh now go,
Walk out the door,
Just turn around now,
Cause you're not welcome anymore,
Weren't you the one who tried to hurt me with goodbye,
You think I'd crumble, you think I'd lay down and die

Brittany and The Troubletones:
I'm a survivor (Sugar: what),
I'm not gonna give up (Sugar: what)
I'm not gon' stop (Sugar: what),
I'm gonna work harder (Sugar: what)
I'm a survivor (Sugar: what),
I'm gonna make it (Sugar: what)
I will survive (Sugar: what),
keep on survivin' (Sugar: what)

Mercedes (with The Troubletones harmonizing):
It took all the strength I had
Not to fall apart
Kept trying hard to mend the pieces
Of my broken heart.

Santana (with The Troubletones harmonizing):
And I spent oh so many nights
Just feeling sorry for myself
I used to cry
But now I hold my head up high.

Brittany and The Troubletones:
I'm a survivor (Sugar: what),
I'm not gonna give up (Sugar: what)
I'm not gon' stop (Sugar: what),
I'm gonna work harder (Sugar: what)
I'm a survivor (Sugar: what),
I'm gonna make it (Sugar: what)
I will survive (Sugar: what),
keep on survivin' (Sugar: what)

Mercedes:
Yeahhhh

Mercedes (with Brittany harmonizing):
Thought I couldn't breathe without ya,
I'm inhalin'
You thought I couldn't see without ya,
perfect vision
You thought I couldn't last without ya,
but I'm lastin'
You thought that I would die without ya,
but I'm livin'

Santana (with The Troubletones harmonizing):
Thought that I would fail without ya,
but I'm on top
Thought it would be over by now,
but it won't stop
Thought that I would self destruct,
but I'm still here
Even in my years to come,
I'm still gonna be here

Brittany and The Troubletones:
I'm a survivor (Sugar: what) (Santana: I'm a survivor, yeahhh),
I'm not gonna give up (Sugar: what)
I'm not gon' stop (Sugar: what) (Mercedes: I'm not gon' stop),
I'm gonna work harder (Sugar: what) (Mercedes: I'm gonna work harder)
I'm a survivor (Sugar: what),
I'm gonna make it (Sugar: what) (Mercedes: I'm gonna make it)
I will survive (Sugar: what) (Mercedes: I will survive),
keep on survivin' (Sugar: what) (Mercedes: And keep on survivin')

I'm a survivor (Sugar: what) (Santana: I'm a survivor),
I'm not gonna give up (Sugar: what) (Santana: Yeah, yeah)
I'm not gon' stop (Sugar: what),
I'm gonna work harder (Sugar: what) (Santana: Ain't gonna stop me now)
I'm a survivor (Sugar: what),
I'm gonna make it (Sugar: what) (Santana: I'm gonna make it)
I will survive (Sugar: what) (Santana: I will survive),
keep on survivin' (Sugar: what) (Santana: Survivin' yeahhh)

Mercedes with The Troubletones:
Oh no not I, I will survive
Oh as long as i know how to love
I know I'll stay alive (Brittany: I'm a survivor)
I've got all my life to live (Brittany with The Troubletones: Survivor)
I've got all my love to give (Brittany: I'm a survivor)
And I'll survive (Brittany with The Troubletones: Survivor)
I will survive (Brittany with The Troubletones: Survivor)
Hey Hey

Mercedes, Santana and Brittany with The Troubletones:
I'm a survivor (Sugar: what)
I'm not goin' give up ( Sugar: what)
I'm not goin' stop (Sugar: what)
(Only Santana with Brittany: I'm goin' work harder!) (Sugar: what)
I'm a survivor (Sugar: what)
I'm gonna make it (Sugar: what)
I will survive (Sugar: what)
