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 Troubletones with solos by Santana, Mercedes, Brittany, and Sugar.

It is technically their last performance as a group, since the Troubletones were disbanded after losing Sectionals to the New Directions. However, Will and Rachel agree to let The Troubletones perform one song in every competition that remains. This is the only song in their Sectionals setlist. 

Lyrics

Santana:
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 with The Troubletones (Sugar):
I'm a survivor (What!)
I'm not gon' give up (What!)
I'm not gon' stop (What!)
I'm gon' work harder (What!)
I'm a survivor (What!)
I'm gonna make it (What!)
I will survive (What!)
Keep on survivin' (What!)

Mercedes:
It took all the strength I had,
Not to fall apart,
Kept trying hard to mend,
The pieces of my broken heart

Santana:
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 with The Troubletones (Sugar):
I'm a survivor (What!)
I'm not gon' give up (What!)
I'm not gon' stop (What!)
I'm gon' work harder (What!)
I'm a survivor (What!)
I'm gonna make it (What!)
I will survive (What!)
Keep on survivin' (What!)

Mercedes (The Troubletones):
Yeahhhh!
Yeah, yeah!
Yeah-eah!

Thought I couldn't (Aaah) breathe without you,
I'm (Aaah) inhalin'
You thought I couldn't (Aaah) see without you,
Perfect (Aaah) vision
You thought I couldn't (Aaah) last without you,
But I'm (Aaah) lastin'
You thought that I would (Aaah) die without you,
But I'm (Aaah) livin'

Santana (The Troubletones):
Thought that I would (Aaah) fail without you,
But I'm (Aaah) on top
Thought it would be (Aaah) over by now,
But it (Aaah) won't stop
Thought that I would (Aaah) self-destruct,
But I'm (Aaah) still here
Even in my (Aaah) years to come,
I'm still gon' be here!

Mercedes and Santana with Brittany and The Troubletones (Sugar):
I'm a survivor (What!) (Santana: Yeahh!)

Mercedes with Brittany and The Troubletones (Sugar):
I'm not gon' give up (What!)
I'm not gon' stop (What!)
I'm gon' work harder (What!)

Oh, as long as I know how to love
I know I'll stay alive
