Lyrics:

Hall of Fame

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

You can beat the world
You can beat the war
You can talk to God
Go banging on his door

You can throw your hands up
You can beat the clock, yeah
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 can beat the world
You can beat the war
You can talk to God
Go banging on his door

You can be the hero
You can get the gold
Breaking all the records
They thought never could be broke

Yeah, do it for your people
Do it for your pride
How are you ever gonna know
If you never even try?

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

When you’re 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

You can be the greatest
You can be the best
You can be the King Kong
Banging on your chest

You can beat the world
You can beat the war
You can talk to God
Go banging on his door

You can throw your hands up
You can beat the clock, yeah
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

Peace Like a River
