Katy Perry Turns 29, and Her 'Roar' Is as Loud as Ever!

The birthday girl's latest song is a hit, thanks in no small part to its empowering lyrics. So let's take a closer look at them!

Since pop superstar Katy Perry turns 29 today, we thought we'd take a closer look at some of the powerful lyrics in her chart-topping single, "Roar."

Hailed as one of the biggest, most inspirational songs of the year -- in particular touching a large number of young adults around the world -- fans are still propelling the song and its powerful message to the top of the charts.

The chorus is the most emotion-filled part of the song. And every time we hear it, Perry makes us feel like this:

"I got the eye of the tiger..."

"A fighter..."

"Dancing through the fire..."

"Cause I am a champion..."

"And you're gonna hear me ROAR..."

"Louder than a lion..."

"Cause I am a champion..."

"And you're gonna hear me ROAR..."

"Oh oh oh oh oh oh..."

"You’re gonna hear me ROOAARRRR!!!"
