Go, Go, Go! Ale, Ale, Ale!

Our theme for today’s Song Lyric Sunday is about sports songs and yes, I totally remember that one song that’s become so popular all over the world in 1998-1999.

“The Cup of Life” (Spanish: La Copa de la Vida) is a song recorded by Puerto Rican singer Ricky Martin for his fourth studio album, Vuelve (1998). Martin created the song after FIFA requested him an anthem. The song was written by Luis Gómez Escolar, Desmond Child and Draco Rosa, while the production was handled by the latter two. It was released by Columbia Records on March 9, 1998, as the second single from the album, and became the official song of the 1998 FIFA World Cup in France. A primarily Spanish language samba-rooted Latin pop song, it carries a soccer-heavy message with fully positive lyrics.

It’s the Ricky Martin hype that made this song so popular — not to mention how it’s related to FIFA 😀 Ricky had the time of his life! He’s the hottest artist with chart-topping songs! I love Ricky Martin!

The Cup of Life

The cup of life, this is the one
Now is the time, don’t ever stop
Push it along, gotta be strong
Push it along, right to the top

The feelin’ in your soul is gonna take control
Nothing can hold you back if you really want it
I see it in your eyes you want the cup of life
Now that the day is here, gotta go and get it
Do you really want it? (Yeah!)
Do you really want it? (Yeah!)

Here we go! Ale, ale, ale!
Go, go, go! Ale, ale, ale!
Tonight’s the night we’re gonna celebrate
The cup of life! Ale, ale, ale!

The cup of life, it’s do or die
It’s here, it’s now, turn up the lights
Push it along, then let it roll
Push it along, go, go, goal

And when you feel that heat, the world is at your feet
No one can hold you down if you really want it
Just steal your destiny, rght from the hands of fate
Reach for the cup of life ’cause your name is on it
Do you really want it (Yeah!)
Do you really want it (Yeah!)Here we go! Ale, ale, ale!
Go, go, go! Ale, ale, ale!
Tonight’s the night we’re gonna celebrate
The cup of life! Ale, ale, ale!

The feelin’ in your soul is gonna take control
Nothing can hold you back if you really want it
I see it in your eyes you want the cup of life
Now that the day is here, we’re gotta go and get it
Do you really want it? (Yeah!)
Do you really want it? (Yeah!)
Do you really want it (Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!)

Here we go! Ale, ale, ale!
Go, go, go! Ale, ale, ale!
Tonight’s the night we’re gonna celebrate
The cup of life! Ale, ale, ale!

Un, dos, tres! Ole, ole, ole!
Un, deux, trois! Ale, Ale, Ale!
Tonight’s the night we’re gonna celebrate
The cup of life! Ale, ale, ale!

      1. Yes, your music would work well with us 😊😊😊 More musical creations are on their way, Janis. I was recording some material yesterday and then I got distracted when I started playing a few of Bryan Ferry’s songs 😂🤣😂
