Eye of the Tiger Roar Lyrics by Katy Perry

 (Scroll down for the Official Video)

I used to bite my tongue and hold my breath
Scared to rock the boat and make a mess
So I sat quietly, agreed 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, your hear that sound
Like thunder, gonna shake the ground
You held me down, but I got up
Get ready ’cause I had enough
I see it all, I see it now

I got the eye of the tiger, the fire
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 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, your hear that sound
Like thunder, gonna shake the ground
You held me down, but I got up
Get ready ’cause I’ve had enough
I see it all, I see it now

I got the eye of the tiger, the fire
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 oh oh oh
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 oh oh oh
You’re gonna hear me roar!

Roar, roar, roar, roar, roar!

I got the eye of the tiger, the fire
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 oh oh oh
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 oh oh oh
You’re gonna hear me roar!

Some Facts About Eye of the Tiger “Roar” Lyrics Sung by Katy Perry

Roar” is a very popular song by Katy Perry, which is also the lead single from her fourth studio album, Prism (2013). The song was written by Perry, Dr. Luke, Max Martin, Bonnie McKee, and Cirkut. “Roar” is a midtempo power pop song; its lyrics are all about standing up for yourself.

Some music critics deemed “Roar” a “determined note” for Prism, and described it as a “sure-to-be radio hit”. However other critics thought the lyrics were predictable, “cheesy” and contained “clichés”; describing the song as “more of a yelp than a roar”. Upon the release, Perry received significant negative press due to accusations of plagiarism stemming from “uncomfortably close” similarities between “Roar” and Sara Bareilles’ “Brave”.

The single became the singer’s eighth non-consecutive US Billboard Hot 100 number one, and topped music charts in eight other countries. The music video for “Roar” was released on September 5, 2013, which was directed by Grady Hall and Mark Kudsi, and filmed at the Los Angeles County Arboretum and Botanic Garden.

“Roar” was written and recorded in March 2013. Prior to the release of the single, Perry released four teasers, all of which stated the single would be released August 12, 2013. The first teaser showed her burning a blue wig and revealed the song title and release date. The second teaser showed her at a funeral for her peppermint swirl outfit. The third teaser showed a cat eating a feather toy and roaring afterwards. The fourth teaser showed Perry walking into a recording studio.

The song made its official radio debut on August 10, 2013 and was released on iTunes on August 12.

On August 12, 2013, a lyric video for “Roar” was released onto VEVO and YouTube, which was directed/produced by Joe Humpay, Aya Tanimura, Tim Zimmer, and Tuan Le. It depicts Perry doing daily activities such as eating, using the toilet, working out, and taking a bath, while she texts the lyrics on her iPhone to various people; Emoji characters are used in place of certain words. Music producer Dillon Francis felt that the “Roar” lyric video copied his “Messages” video, as it also used the concept of instant messaging.

The official full-length music video for “Roar” was released on September 5, 2013, directed by Grady Hall and Mark Kudsi, and filmed at the Los Angeles County Arboretum and Botanic Garden. A 21-second teaser of the video had previously been uploaded on August 25, 2013. Nokia posted an additional behind the scenes video on September 4, 2013.

James Montgomery, of MTV News, believed that the video drew inspiration from Sheena, Queen of the Jungle and stated the video didn’t take itself too seriously, describing it as “camp”.

Perry was criticized by PETA for using exotic animals in the video for “Roar”. Merrilee Burke from PETA stated: “Animals used for entertainment….. endure horrific cruelty and suffer from extreme confinement and violent training methods.” Burke also declared that the animals involved in the music video were allegedly provided by a company who was criticized by US officials.

Perry responded by obtaining a letter from the American Humane Association, which had representatives present at the three-day shoot. It stated that “After reviewing the reports, we believe that the Guidelines for the Safe Use of Animals in Filmed Media were followed and that no animal was harmed in the making of this music video”.
