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

  1. Bronze:
    Greatest Best. YOU could beat the world war. You can. Pride. Champion. Hero
    These are all great things we all can achieve but we all must at least TRY .
    I believe these words suite my personality in different ways

  2. SILVER READING CHALLENGE
    This relates to I’m blinded by your grace because in the first paragraph it say Yeah, you could be the greatest
    You can be the best and that’s telling you that you can’t do the best you can

    • Silver:
      This song relates to Stormzy’s ‘ Blinded by your grace ‘ because I’m Hall Of Fame, It says,
      “ 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”

      This is showing that to never give up and always try your best.

      ‘Blinded by your grace’ means that Stormzy would not by in his position without believing and with a the help of god. These two songs link in by self belief and growth mindset.
