Come Monday...Tim Tebow's Fire


“Come Monday…” is a weekly series that will involve a review of, or commentary about,  websites, movies, documentaries, television shows, sports, music, and whatever else may tickle my fancy at the time.  Be assured that these reviews will be generally positive, as in accordance to the Jimmy Buffett song “Come Monday.”  This is subject to change, however.  In fact, I would be most derelict in my duties to neglect going on a rant every once in a while.  For rants promote change, and change can be good—right?  Therefore, since good is generally considered as being a positive force in 99.3% of the parallel universes that I am aware of, even a rant could be considered as being something positive, and a genuine hissy-fit would be even better (so I’m told).

I was quite distraught when I heard the news that [John Parr] had released a rewritten version of St. Elmo’s Fire (Man In Motion).  For it is one of my all-time favorite songs, and it adds all the more to the wrong message, which Tim Tebow is either completely ignorant of, or secretly welcomes all of the attention it brings.

If you have no idea what I am talking about, please go [here].  Yeah, I suppose I should be thankful that he didn’t title the new version as St. Tebow’s Fire.

St. Elmo’s Fire (Man In Motion)
John Parr
Growin' up
You don't see the writin’ on the wall
Passin' by
Movin' straight ahead
You knew it all
But maybe sometime
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 in some way
You're a lot like me
You're just a prisoner
And you're 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 your man in motion
All I need is a pair of wheels
Take me where my future's lyin'
St. Elmo's Fire
Ooooh ooh

Burnin’ up
Don't know just how far that I can go
Just how far I go
Soon be home
Only just a few miles down the road
I can make it
I know I can
You broke the boy in me
But you won't break the man

I can see a new horizon
Underneath the blazin' sky
I'll be where the eagle's flyin’
Higher and higher
Gonna be your man in motion
All I need is a pair of wheels
Take me where my future's lyin'
St. Elmo's Fire
I can climb the highest mountain
Cross the wildest sea
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
I'm comin’ alive

I can hear the music playin'
I can see the banners fly
Feel like you're back again
And hope ridin' high
Gonna be your man in motion
All I need is a pair of wheels
Take me where my future's lyin'
St. Elmo's Fire

I can see a new horizon
Underneath the blazin' sky
I'll be where the eagle's flyin’
Higher and higher
Gonna be your man in motion
All I need is a pair of wheels
Take me where my future's lyin'
St. Elmo's Fire
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

Tim Tebow’s Fire
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 need is 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 four downs to go
I can make it
I know I can
You broke the boy in me
But you won't break the man

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 need is 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
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
I can see a new horizon
Blazin on the Mile High
I'll be where the eagle's flyin'
Higher and higher
Gonna be a man in motion
These Broncos can’t be beat
Take me where my future's lyin'
Tim Tebow’s fire
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'

  4. I have to agree with A Quiet Corner, the original is much better. It's been ages since I've heard that one

  6. Thanks for stopping by again, my dear Ann!!! I don't know just exactly what it is actually called, but this is one of several songs that came out in the 80's that had a bigger, almost orchestral sound on account of synthesizers (I think), to them, which I really love.

  7. If you had of left just one comment, my dear Sugu, I might have left it alone, but since you have left the same comment (twice!) on four different pieces, it is pretty obvious that you are spammer. Now, I have not marked your comments as such yet, but I will the next time I see one like what you have left this round.
