You’re Gonna Hear Me Roar

The theme Jim Adams, aka Newwpicauthor, has chosen for this week’s SONG-LYRIC-SUNDAY is Animal. This should be a really fun theme. I can’t wait to see what everyone comes up with!

I have to admit I am not a great fan of modern pop music. Some of it is alright. But most of it I avoid.

Jack, my ex-flatmate, had more of a thing for pop music. He loved all music. He was a performer after all. He loved singing. He used to sing in the shower, sing in the kitchen early in the morning. In fact it was one of the things I loved about living with him – he was always singing.

He went through a stage when this song was stuck in his head! I cannot tell you how many times I woke up hearing Jack singing the chorus to this song at the top of his voice!

bakeJust before you look at my song choice for today – could I just mention that you are of course all invited to join THE GREAT BLOGGERS’ BAKE-OFF on Sunday 24th March 2019.

This is one of the promotional posts I published…but lots more details to come. It’s not so much a competition, more a great fun day for the blogging community!

I used to bite my tongue and hold my breath
Scared to rock the boat and make a mess
So I sit quietly, agree politely
I guess that I forgot I had a choice
I let you push me past the breaking point
I stood for nothing, so I fell for everything

You held me down, but I got up (HEY!)
Already brushing off the dust
You hear my voice, you hear that sound
Like thunder gonna shake the ground
You held me down, but I got up (HEY!)
Get ready ’cause I’ve had enough
I see it all, I see it now

I got the eye of the tiger, a fighter, dancing through the fire
‘Cause I am a champion and you’re gonna hear me roar
Louder, louder than a lion
‘Cause I am a champion and you’re gonna hear me roar
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
You’re gonna hear me roar

Now I’m floating like a butterfly
Stinging like a bee I earned my stripes
I went from zero, to my own hero

You held me down, but I got up (HEY!)
Already brushing off the dust
You hear my voice, you hear that sound
Like thunder gonna shake the ground
You held me down, but I got up (HEY!)
Get ready ’cause I’ve had enough
I see it all, I see it now

I got the eye of the tiger, a fighter, dancing through the fire
‘Cause I am a champion and you’re gonna hear me roar
Louder, louder than a lion
‘Cause I am a champion and you’re gonna hear me roar
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
(You’re gonna hear me roar)
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
(You’ll hear me roar)
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
You’re gonna hear me roar…

Ro-oar, ro-oar, ro-oar, ro-oar, ro-oar

I got the eye of the tiger, a fighter, dancing through the fire
‘Cause I am a champion and you’re gonna hear me roar
Louder, louder than a lion
‘Cause I am a champion and you’re gonna hear me roar
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
(You’re gonna hear me roar)
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
(You’ll hear me roar)
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
You’re gonna hear me roar…

      More details to come about the Bake-Off. We are trying to draw attention to it at the moment. But there will be some key posts with the ingredients needed and of course the challenge itself.

      Can't wait – should be a really fun event.
