Let's Exercise

Story Behind The Song

This is my kid-friendly "get up off the couch and quit playing your computer game and go outside and exercise" song. I am increasingly concerned with device-addicted children who are nature and exercise deprived and deficient. So I wrote a motivational song to get 'em up, out an MOVING!

Song Description

Here's a fun exercise song great for the classroom and home. Might not work for the car (smile!). Kids love it because there are fun actions, 4 animals complete with sound effects and puppets (if you come to one of my live shows!). Song starts out medium tempo and ramps up to fast, with exciting piano tracks by Scott Griffin of Captivating Keyboards.

You've gotta run a little, jump a little, climb a tree.
Get your body movin' like a bumblebee.
Kick up your heels and reach for the sky
Make the extra effort! Try! Try! Try!

And you will leap like a lion (ROAR)
Be swift, like the cheetah runs.
And you'll climb like a monkey (HOO HOO HA HA)
Havin' so much fun.

C'mon, Work it out; work it out! Push, Push, Push!
Limit your screen time! Get up off your tush.
Exercise! Be all you can be!

Very entertaining. The different sections of the song are very clever and keep the listener on board. It is very dynamic. I like the vocal arrangement and the instrumentation. Despite the child-friendly nature of the song to my ear it's quite a sophisticated tune in terms of its structure. Very nicely recorded.
