The Trouble With Katy Perry's "Roar"

Is She A Boxer Or A Tiger?

Posted on

The lyrics are baffling. Let's break it down.

I stood for nothing, so I fell for everything
You held me down, but I got up (HEY!)

Get ready 'cause I've had enough

I see it all, I see it now

I got the eye of the tiger, a fighter, 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
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 hear my voice, you hear that sound
Like thunder gonna shake the ground

Apologies, Ms. Perry.

Two metaphors in one song. It's too much for the brain.

Getting close, though.

[Chorus]
I got the eye of the tiger, a fighter, dancing through the fire

'Cause I am a champion and you're gonna hear me roar

Oh oh oh oh oh oh
You're gonna hear me roar...

Ro-oar, ro-oar, ro-oar, ro-oar, ro-oar

I got the eye of the tiger, a fighter,
dancing through the fire

'Cause I am a champion...

Wait a second here...

hold on...

Wait...

Yup.

That's Right.

Got it.
