Holding Out for a Hero (The Matt Flynn Tribute, Part 2)

Blast this video as loud as you can. The lyrics will match up with the song. Part 1 can be found here.

Where has Aaron Rodgers gone
With the season on the line?
Can a castoff quarterback
keep playoff hopes alive?
Will you be our green knight upon a fiery steed?
Late at night we toss and we turn and we dream of destiny

[Chorus]
WE NEED A HERO! (Matt Flynn!)
We’re holding on for a hero for Thanksgiving’s fight
He’s gotta be strong, and he’s gotta be fast
And he’s gotta be fresh for the fight
WE NEED A HERO! (Matt Flynn!)
We’re holding on for a hero for Thanksgiving’s fight
He’s gotta be sure, and it’s gotta be soon
And he’s gotta be larger than life… larger than life

Sometime midday Thursday
On that crummy Ford Field
I’ll be reaching toward my big screen
To give you the courage that you need
With Lacy as the thunder, will you provide the heat
To be our superman and beat that loser team?

[Chorus]
WE NEED A HERO! (Matt Flynn!)
We’re holding on for a hero for Thanksgiving’s fight
He’s gotta be strong, and he’s gotta be fast
And he’s gotta be fresh for the fight
WE NEED A HERO! (Matt Flynn!)
We’re holding on for a hero for Thanksgiving’s fight
He’s gotta be sure, and it’s gotta be soon
And he’s gotta be larger than life

WE NEED A HERO! (Matt Flynn!)
We’re holding on for a hero for Thanksgiving’s fight

Across the lake somewhere deep in Michigan
Close to where 8 Mile was filmed
You can bet that Lombardi will be watching over you
Through the crowd and the noise and the turf
Let them feel your approach
With a fire in your blood! With a fire in your blood! With a fire in your blood! With a fire in your blood!
With a fire in your…RAWR!!! KILL!!!

[Chorus]
WE NEED A HERO! (Matt Flynn!)
We’re holding on for a hero for Thanksgiving’s fight
He’s gotta be strong, and he’s gotta be fast
And he’s gotta be fresh for the fight
WE NEED A HERO! (Matt Flynn!)
We’re holding on for a hero for Thanksgiving’s fight
He’s gotta be sure, and it’s gotta be soon
And he’s gotta be larger than life

  1. I'm sitting at my desk and just turned it up real loud. COME ON, FLYNN!

  2. Some things (like cold pizza) may be even better the second time around. Side note: if you haven't checked out Josh Sitton's interview regarding Detroit "scumbags" it is a must listen. I'm voting Sitton for Packer media spokesman 2013.

    1. Oh yeah, Buck. I head the Sitton interview live and it was awesome. Definitely not breaking news, but so glad he told it like it was.

    I like that he's not backing down from his comments, even after the absolute smoking debacle that was the game.
