What does the phrase “eye of the tiger mean” ? Please be specific!!
In the wild, seeing the “eyes” of the tiger signifies death, because right before a tiger attacks, it turns its ears forward so that the spot on the back of each ear faces nearer its prey. The “eye spots” on the back of tigers’ ears serve to confuse predators and reduce the risk of attack from behind. Hence, once someone sees these “eyes”, the tiger is about to attack.
The song used in Rocky is “Eye of the Tiger” by a band called Survivor. Some of the lyrics….
It’s the Eye of the Tiger,
It’s the thrill of the fight,
Rising up to the challenge of our rival,
And the last known survivor
Stalks his prey in the night,
And he’s watching us all
With the Eye of the Tiger.
It’s a song from “Rocky” I’m guessing it means the tiger has a certain look in his eye right before he eats your a** up!!
