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
