as a follow up to the exercise friday five...

Go You Chicken Fat, Go was actually on youtube! Apparently 1961 was the first year this song was used in PE classes, but it went strong for many years. Mrs. Scherbenske (my gym teacher) would probably still be using it if she wasn't retired.

It was weird to hear it again after all these years. I remembered a lot of the lyrics -- apparently they were seared on my brain.

I remember this program, but neither my husband nor I remember this song....very funny! (Of course we were 4 in 1961, didn't start school until 1962)....

Haha, we didn't sing it -- we had to exercise to it! :)

(Rodger, I agree!)
