...And it's far, far worse than you can imagine.
If you were ever of a mind to "remember the 1980s," we have something that might have you thinking twice. Two-hit wonder John Parr, who wrote the "Man in Motion" song that became the theme to noted Brat Pack movie "St. Elmo's Fire" in 1985, has changed the lyrics of the song to reflect the singer's admiration for one Tim Tebow.
"I was inspired by Tim Tebow, so I wanted to modify the lyrics...in his honor of the way that he lives his life as being a great example,"
Parr told FOX31 Denver on Monday.
The original "Man in Motion" hit No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1985 and was nominated for a Grammy. Parr re-recorded the track in October of 2011 at ESPN's request (of course) and later released the new version as a single. It wouldn't be the first time the song has enjoyed a rebirth — a dance mix take hit the charts in 2006 — but this could appeal to an entirely new (and ever-growing) audience. After all, you don't sell 10 million albums worldwide by being a dummy — generally speaking, the dummies sell a LOT more.
In any case, you can read the lyrics after the jump. We're off to stock up on canned goods and retire to the comfort of the underground bunker.
Tim Tebow's Fire (Lyrics) by John Parr Growin' up Gotta keep your eye on the ball Make it fly, Give it everything, give your all But maybe sometimes if you feel the pain You'll find you're all alone Everything has changed Play the game You know you can't quit until it's won Soldier on Only you can do what must be done You know I'm out there Down on one knee a prisoner And I'm tryin' to break free
I can see a new horizon Underneath the blazin' sky I'll be where the eagle's Flyin' higher and higher Gonna be a man in motion All I needs my Broncos team Take me where my future's lyin' Tim Tebow's Fire Oooh... Burnin' up Don't know just how far that I can go (Just how far I go) Soon be home Only just 4 downs to go I can make it I know I can You broke the boy in me But you won't break the man (CHORUS) I can see a new horizon blazin' on the Mile High I'll be where the eagle's Flyin' higher and higher Gonna be your man in motion All I needs my Broncos team Take me where my future's lyin' Tim Tebow's Fire I can climb the highest mountain These Broncos can't be beat I can feel St Elmo's Fire burnin' in me Burnin' in me Just once in his life A man has his time And my time is now And I'm comin' alive I can hear the music playin' I can see the banners fly Feel like a man again I'll hold my head high Gonna be a man in motion These broncos can't be beat Take me where my future's lyin' Tim Tebow's fire (CHORUS) I can climb the highest mountain Cross the wildest sea I can feel St. Elmo's Fire burnin' in me Burnin' Burnin' in me I can feel it burnin' Oooh, burnin' inside of me Other popular content on the Y! network: • Packers star Jordy Nelson proud of humble roots • Video: Fans crash Mavericks' bench during NBA game • What hiring managers don't want you to know
