I'm heading upstream
And chasing after my dream
You oughta come, you say

But in my canoe
It's much harder with two
And I can't paddle that way

Oh, you say let's marry
And promise you'll carry
Your sail alone

Girl, can'tyou take it
Until I make it
Life is a real bumpy road

[Chorus:]
Nothing succeeds like success
And I guess, I wanna be
Just like all of the rest
Like all the rich men
Who have been blessed
Nothing succeeds like success

I'll sympathize with
All the tears in your eyes
But, baby, I can't stay

I've got a date with success
And unless I make it
I won't pay

And when I get up to
The top of the ladder
Baby, I'll look down

I'll reach out my hand to you
I'll try to pull you through
I hope you'll still be around

[Repeat chorus]

And when I get up to
The top of the ladder
Baby, I'll look down

I'll reach out my hand to you
I'll try to pull you through
I hope you'll still be around

[Repeat chorus 2x]
