Yeah, you could be the greatest
You can be the best
You can be the King Kong banging on your chest

You could beat the world
You could beat the war
You could talk to God, go banging on his door

You can throw your hands up
You can beat the clock
You can move a mountain
You can break rocks
You can be a master
Don’t wait for luck
Dedicate yourself and you can find yourself

Standing in the hall of fame
And the world’s gonna know your name
‘Cause you burn with the brightest flame
And the world’s gonna know your name
And you’ll be on the walls of the hall of fame

You could go the distance
You could run the mile
You could walk straight through hell with a smile

You could be the hero
You could get the gold
Breaking all the records that thought, never could be broke

Do it for your people
Do it for your pride
How you ever gonna know if you never even try?

Do it for your country
Do it for you name
‘Cause there’s gonna be a day

When your, standing in the hall of fame
And the world’s gonna know your name
‘Cause you burn with the brightest flame
And the world’s gonna know your name
And you’ll be on the walls of the hall of fame

Be a champion, be a champion, be a champion, be a champion

On the walls of the hall of fame

Be students, be teachers
Be politicians, be preachers

Be believers, be leaders
Be astronauts Be champions
Be truth seekers

Be students, be teachers
Be politicians, be preachers

Be believers, be leaders
Be astronauts, be champions

Standing in the hall of fame
And the world’s gonna know your name
‘Cause you burn with the brightest flame
And the world’s gonna know your name
And you’ll be on the walls of the hall of fame

    hero,champion and best because I can be the best at a certain type of topic.
    Silver:
    It is similar because in blinded by your grace the message anything is possible , and the message in hall of fame is similar. The differences are stormzy was talking about what god got him in a situation and helped him get out of the situation ,but in hall of fame they were saying you can do anything your the best.

  11. The most important words and the key word is hall of fame because it’s also in the title so I think it’s a key word and as well it’s a reapeted word also there were some lyrics like banging on your chest is a key word as well.when it you got king Kong banging on your chest the person might get a deep feeling.

      • Gold:

        In my opinion the phrase
        “Do it for your people”
        “Do it for your pride”
        “How you ever gonna know if you never even try?”
        This is because the saying “How you ever gonna know if you never even try?” Means keep on trying you would rather, Look back and say I wish that would have worked, but you don’t want to look back and say, I wish I would’ve tried.
        It means keep on trying, work hard and be committed, no matter what❗️
        This why I believe this is a phrase of resilience❗️
