Music Video: Eye of the Tiger

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.
