John Parr Re-Records "St. Elmo's Fire" For Tim Tebow

On the heels of Tim Tebow’s most insane, improbable comeback yet, and the subsequent shattering of Twitter records, John Parr has finally heeded the call to re-record his 1985 hit “St. Elmo’s Fire” with Tebow-centric lyrical tweaks. Some examples:

Down on one knee
A prisoner
And I’m tryin’ to break free

The chorus:

I can see a new horizon
Underneath the blazin’ sky
I’ll be where the eagle’s
Flyin’ higher and higher

Gonna be a man in motion
All I needs my Broncos team
Take me where my future’s lyin’
Tim Tebows Fire

Have at it after the jump.

Deadspin points out that Parr tried the song out a while back on ESPN’s Sportsnation, but we’re glad he threw his heart into the polished, studio version. May God (and his nephew Tim) smile down upon you, this day.

  1. And this is how the end times begin…

  2. It wasn’t Tim Tebow’s improbable comeback, he actually stopped the Steelers’ comeback but that’s not what’s important here. What’s important here is John Parr needs to cut this shit out.

    • Ha, fair point. It’s easier in my mind to phrase everything he does as a comeback. With a story like this, there’s so little to make sense of that you have to give yourself some allowances.

  3. Ahhh WTF?!

    I thought you meant Brian Eno & Robert Fripp’s “St. Elmo’s Fire”

  4. … and may God have mercy on our souls.

  5. Rather put glass in my eyes than listen to this song again.

    On another note, the Broncos didn’t win that game. Royal never got his left foot in on that touchdown, the 50-yard pass interference was non-existent, and I just hate Tim Fucking Tebow. I’m not even a Steelers fan.

    This is worse than the Chicago Bears rap from the 80s.

    • Royal didn’t need his left foot in, his knee was down with possession: Touchdown. Taylor had the receiver wrapped around the left arm with a solid bump to the back, knocking him down before going for the ball. Can’t do that.

      Also, this Pats fan thinks it’s weird that you actually “hate” Tim Tebow.
