"Eye of the Tiger" as written by and James Michael/sullivan Peterik....
Risin' up, back on the street
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
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' hungry
They stack the odds 'till we take to the street
For the kill with the skill to survive

It's the eye of the tiger, it's the dream 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

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 dream 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

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

    My InterpretationThis song has one of the best lyrics ever, you can apply it in every challenge you have in your life.

    Fight, work, get a job, get confidence, tell a girl\boy you like her\him, study, make important decisions, hard past...

    Basically the song tells you to not give up, the past has passed and it gave you experience, you know what is to be the hunted and now it's time to become the hunter, be the best, if not, be the best you can be.

    What's important it's not the beard you have outside, but the beard you have inside.
