Lyrics

When the going gets tough,
The tough get going.
Keep in shape
While our bodies are growing!
Bends and stretches are the way to stay fit.
Shake your body! Get the hang of it.
When my body gets strong
I can play much longer,
My brain is sharp
My mind gets stronger.
Do two stretches right where you are!
How many stretches have we done so far?
Well, two! You're right!
Tuck that tummy
And hold those lines!
Two! That's right!
Healthy bodies make healthy minds.
When I lie on the floor
And I do a sit-up,
My blood starts pumping
And my skin feels lit up.
Do three sit-ups, c'mon everyone!
How many sit-ups do you think we've done?
Well, three! You're right!
Feel those muscles!
Straighten those spines!
Three! That's right!
Healthy bodies
Make healthy minds.
Bend and stretch! Stretch and bend...
Your outer and your inner!
That's the spirit! Help your friend!
Then everyone's a winner!
When my muscles warm up,
They get firm and sturdy,
I do ten push-ups
Maybe twenty - or thirty!
Doing bends makes you feel so good!
Would you do a hundred if you thought you could?
You would? All right!
Feel those muscles!
Straighten those lines!
You would? All right!
Healthy bodies
Make healthy minds.
Bend once! Bend twice!
How many bends
'Til you need some ice?
Extend those spines!
Healthy bodies
Make healthy minds.
Stretch up! Stretch down!
How many stretches
'Til you just break down?
A champion finds...
That healthy bodies
Make healthy minds.
