I'm the best! Around!

So I watched Karate Kid last night (and it's funny how many lines I still remembered from watching it over and over as a kid). Now I'm all motivated to enter a tournament and Crane someone's ass.

For the rest of the night (and day) I've had the song from the very end of the movie ("You're the best") running through my head. I wonder if I can download that bad boy from iTunes.

Here are the lyrics; if you've ever seen the movie, this should be enough to jog your memory--now you can have it in YOUR head, too.

(PS--I love how towards the end, they typed in "Inspiring guitar solo." LOLOL)

Artist: Joe Esposito
Song: You're the Best

Try to be best
‘Cause you’re only a man
And a man’s gotta learn to take it
Try to believe
Though the going gets rough
That you gotta hang tough to make it
History repeats itself
Try and you’ll succeed
Never doubt that you’re the one
And you can have your dreams!

You’re the best!Around!
Nothing’s gonna ever keep you down
You’re the Best!Around!
Nothing’s gonna ever keep you down
You’re the Best!Around!
Nothing’s gonna ever keep you dow-ow-ow-ow-own

Fight ‘til the end
Cause your life will depend
On the strength that you have inside you
Ah you gotta be proud
starin’ out in the cloud
When the odds in the game defy you
Try your best to win them all
and one day time will tell
when you’re the one that’s standing there
you’ll reach the final bell!

You’re the best!Around!
Nothing’s gonna ever keep you down
You’re the Best!Around!
Nothing’s gonna ever keep you down
You’re the Best!Around!
Nothing’s gonna ever keep you dow-ow-ow-ow-own


INSPIRING GUITAR SOLO

You’re the best! Around!
Nothing’s gonna ever keep you down
You’re the Best!Around!
Nothing’s gonna ever keep you down
You’re the Best!Around!
Nothing’s gonna ever keep you dow-ow-ow-ow-own

Fight ‘til you drop
never stop
can’t give up
Til you reach the top (FIGHT!)
you’re the best in town (FIGHT!)
Listen to that sound
A little bit of all you got
Can never bring you down

You’re the best!Around!
Nothing’s gonna ever keep you down
You’re the Best!Around!

I watched it like a month ago. Trying to decide if it was appropriate for Brent to watch. What an AWESOME movie, though! I heart Mr. Miagi.
