I'm Never Giving Up was the United Kingdom entry at the Eurovision Song Contest 1983 in Munich performed by Sweet Dreams.

The song was sung up-tempo and related to the story of the singers "never giving up" in their quest to win back their lover, and restoring their love "the way it was before." The performance featured the trio dressed in exercise gear, with McVay colour-coordinated in blue, and Gray and Kray in red and yellow accessories, respectively. Also unique that year was their use of stools as props, sliding off them at one point to signify a key change in the melody.

It was performed 3rd on the night, following Norway and preceding Sweden. At the close of voting, it finished in 6th place with 79 points.

Lyrics

I don't believe in idle gossip
The jealous mind can be unfair
I hear them make their accusations
But baby, come what may
No matter what the people say

I'm never givin' up, not givin' in
If there's the slightest chance that I could win
The battle may be lost, but I can win the war
And get your lovin' back the way it was before

At times it's hard to see the changes
Or read the writing on the wall
We may become the best of strangers
But I'll keep holding on
Until I know my chance has gone

I'm never givin' up, not givin' in
If there's the slightest chance that I could win
The battle may be lost, but I can win the war
And get your lovin' back the way it was before

Never givin' up, I'm never givin' up

I'm never givin' up, not givin' in
If there's the slightest chance that I could win
The battle may be lost, but I can win the war
And get your lovin' back the way it was

I'm never givin' up, not givin' in
If there's the slightest chance that I could win
The battle may be lost, but I can win the war
And get your lovin' back the way it was before

Never givin' up, I'm never givin' up
(I'm allowed to... all I want to... need your lovin')
I'm never never givin'... never never givin'... never givin' up
