Tim Tebow is now the subject of a reworked 1980s song.
Tim Tebow wasn't even born until 1987, but a hit song from 1985 has been reworked to honor him.
British musician John Parr, who had a #1 hit with "St. Elmo's Fire (Man in Motion)" in 1985, wrote new lyrics for his song focusing on the Denver Broncos quarterback.
Where the original song went "Gonna be your man in motion, all I need's a pair of wheels," the Tebow-ized lyrics read "Gonna be a man in motion, all I need's my Broncos team." And instead of "soon be home, only just a few miles down the road," the new lyrics read "Soon be home, only just four downs to go."
And of course, the title lyric, "St. Elmo's Fire," has been changed in one reference to "Tim Tebow's Fire."
The song was actually released last fall, after Parr performed it on ESPN's "SportsNation," but is getting more attention now that the Broncos are in the NFL playoffs. Denver TV station FOX31 spoke to Parr, who told them "I was inspired by Tim Tebow so I wanted to modify the lyrics ... in his honor of the way he lives his life as being a great example."
The changes may not be as far off as you might think. The song was originally written to honor a wheelchair athlete, Canadian paralympian Rick Hansen, whose "Man in Motion" world tour took him around the world in 1985.
