I've actually been wondering that it's so long since I put up a cool lyrics post. I saw Rocky Balboa a few days ago and was reminded of this song. It's by Survivor, in it's 1982 album, 'Eye Of The Tiger'. It was made for a theme song for Rocky III. I really like that song but never bothered to pay attention to the lyrics (only so much English I can understand from movies, see?). But turns out that it has some wonderful lyrics that totally reflects Rocky. I should put it on my blog. So here goes, for the best ever hero...


Risin' up, back on the streets -
Did my time, took my chances -
Went the distance now I'm back on my feet -
Just a man and his will to survive.
So many times it happens too fast -
You trade your passion for glory.
Don't lose your grip on the dreams of the past.
You must fight just to keep them alive.


It's the eye of the tiger, it's the thrill of the fight -
Rising up to the challenge of our rival.
And the last known survivor stalks his prey in the night.
And he's watching us all with the eye of the tiger.


Face to face, out in the heat -
Hangin' tough, stayin' hungry -
They stack the odds, still we take to the street
For the kill, with the skill to survive.


It's the eye of the tiger, it's the thrill of the fight -
Rising up to the challenge of our rival.
And the last known survivor stalks his prey in the night.
And he's watching us all with the eye of the tiger.


Risin' up, straight to the top.
Had the guts, got the glory.
Went the distance, now I'm not gonna stop.
Just a man and his will to survive.


It's the eye of the tiger, it's the thrill of the fight -
Rising up to the challenge of our rival.
And the last known survivor stalks his prey in the night.
And he's watching us all with the eye of the tiger.


The eye of the tiger.
The eye of the tiger.
The eye of the tiger.
The eye of the tiger.
