You've got to reach your prime.\\
That's when you need to put yourself to the test\\
And show us a passage of time\\
We're going to need a montage (montage!)\\
Ooh it takes a montage (montage!)''
-->-- "Montage", from ''Film/TeamAmericaWorldPolice''

->''Guts! Guts and might!\\
Liftin' weights and feelin' alright!\\
It's a showdown!\\
Goin' downtown! You gonna mess around!\\
Get your nose down!\\

You gotta dream the dream, you gotta win the prize\\
You're gonna go the miles\\
You're gonna face the trials\\
Never lose sight of the sights you see\\
You gotta believe your beliefs are real\\
Now you're drinkin' from a fire hydrant\\
Teach your uncle how to wear a cummerbund\\
Now you're gonna jump a crazy gorge\\
Keep on shaving that hairy uncle!\\
Uh, I don't really know what's happening in this part\\
Your heart's on fire and the fire is in your heart!''
