Music Video: Eye of the Tiger

Average: 3.8 (45 votes)

I decided to use this song for a lesson today as my boyfriend was exercising to it this morning! It is a classic 80's tune and definitely a motivational song. It was also the theme song for the well-known movie, Rockie III. Read through the lyrics and see if you can guess which words complete the gaps. Then listen and see if you were right! Good luck.

Lyrics

Risin' up, back on the street
Did my time, took my _1_
Went the _2_ 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 _3_ for glory
Don't lose your grip on the _4_ of the past
You must fight just to keep them _5_

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

Face to face, out in the heat
Hangin' tough, stayin' _6_
They stack the odds, still we take to the street
For the kill with the _7_ to survive

It's the eye of the tiger, it's the thrill of the fight
Risin' up to the _8_ of our rival
And the last known survivor stalks his prey in the night
And he's watchin' us all with the eye of the tiger

Risin' up, straight to the top
Had the guts, got the _9_
Went the distance now I'm not gonna stop
Just a man and his will to survive
