Survivor/I Will Survive by Destiny's Child/Gloria Gaynor is a mash-up featured in Hold on to Sixteen, the eighth episode of Season Three. It is sung by the The Troubletones with solos from Brittany, Santana, Mercedes and Sugar. It is sung at Sectionals.

It is their last performance as a group, since it was disbanded after losing Sectionals to the New Directions, and the girls from the Trouble Tones who were in glee club before rejoin, along with Sugar who was unable to join previously, as they thought she was not a good enough singer. However, Will and Rachel agree to let The Troubletones perform once in every competition that remains. This is the only song in their Sectionals setlist. 

Lyrics Edit

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 gon' give up (Sugar: what)
I'm not gon' stop (Sugar: what)
I'm gon' 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 gon' give up (Sugar: what)
I'm not gon' stop (Sugar: what)
I'm gon' 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!
Yeah-yeah!
Yeah-yeahh!

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

Santana with The Troubletones harmonizing:
Thought that I would fail without you, 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 gon' be here

Mercedes and Santana with Brittany and The Troubletones:
I'm a survivor (Sugar: what) (Santana: yeahh)

Brittany and The Troubletones:
I'm not gon' give up (Sugar: what)

Mercedes with Brittany and The Troubletones:
I'm not gon' stop (Sugar: what)
I'm gon' work harder (Sugar: what)

Brittany and The Troubletones:
I'm a survivor (Sugar: what)

Mercedes with Brittany and The Troubletones:
I'm gonna make it (Sugar: what)
I will survive (Sugar: what)
And keep on survivin' (Sugar: what)

Santana with Brittany and The Troubletones:
I'm a survivor (Sugar: what)

Brittany and The Troubletones:
I'm not gon' give up (Sugar: what) (Santana: Yeah, yeah)
I'm not gon' stop (Sugar: what),
I'm gon' work harder (Sugar: what) (Santana: Ain't gon' stop me now!)
I'm a survivor (Sugar: what)

Santana with Brittany and The Troubletones:

Oh, as long as I know how to love
I know I'll stay alive (Brittany with The Troubletones: I'm a survivor)

Mercedes:
I've got all my life to live (The Troubletones: Survivor)

And I'll survive (The Troubletones: Survivor)
I will survive (The Troubletones: Survivor)
