[Originally by Survivor]

Risin' up back on the street
Did my time took my chances
I went the distance
Now I'm back on my feet
Just a man with the will to survive

So Many times it happens too fast
You change your passion for glory
Don't lose your grip
On dreams of the past
You must fight to keep them alive

It's the eye of a tiger
The thrill of the fight
Risin' up to challenge our rival
And the last known survivor
Stalks his prey in the night
And he's watching us all with the eye of the tiger

Face to face out in the night
Hangin' tough, stayin' hungry
They stack the odds
Till we tak'em to the street
We kill with the skill to survive

Yes yes the eye of the tiger
It's the dream of the fight
Risin' up to challenge a rival
And it's the last known survivor
Who stalks in the night
Watching us all in the eye of the tiger

Risin' up straight to the top
I got the guts got the glory
I went the distance
Not gonna stop
Just a man with the will to survive, yes

And it's the eye of the tiger
It's the dream of the fight
Risin' up to challenge a rival
It's the last known survivor
Stalking prey in the night
Watching us all in the eye of the tiger
The eye of the tiger
Yes he's ready to fight
Stalking prey in the night
And he's watching
Eye of the tiger
