The Winner Takes It All" is a song recorded by the Swedish pop group ABBA. Released as the first single from the group's Super Trouper album on 21 July 1980, it is a ballad in the key of F-sharp major, reflecting the end of a romance. The single's B-side was the non-album track "Elaine". It was the group's first single after a seven-month hiatus and peaked at N. in several countries, including the UK, where it became their eight chart-topper.

The Winner Takes It All Lyrics. I don't wanna talk About things we've gone through Though it's hurting me Now it's history I've played all my cards And that's what you've done, too Nothing more to say No more ace to play. The winner takes it all The loser's standing small Beside the victory That's her destiny. I was in your arms Thinking I belonged there I figured it made sense Building me a fence Building me a home Thinking I'd be strong there But I was a fool Playing by the rules.

Complete your ABBA collection. The uptempo ballad was one of ABBA's biggest hits. Considered the prime example of ABBA's divorce themed songs, lead vocals were by Agnetha, whose then-recent divorce from ABBA's Björn formed the starting point for the lyrics - which Björn wrote.

The gods may throw a dice Their minds as cold as ice And someone way down here Loses someone dear The winner takes it all The loser has to fall It's simple and it's plain Why should I complain? But tell me does she kiss Like I used to kiss you? Does it feel the same When she calls your name? Somewhere deep inside You must know I miss you But what can I say? . This is the first single from their album "Super Trouper" (1980). Björn Ulvaeus wrote this after he and ABBA's Agnetha Fältskog got divorced. He was unsure about whether she should sing it at all, but she did after he went to the studio and played the song. The song, of course, was very personal for both of them though it's not merely autobiographical but rather a reflection of a divorce.
