You've Got To Choose With Choice


If you ate more protein,
To keep your body lean...
You'd move a lot faster.
And avoid a disaster.

If you had more discipline,
And did it without end...
You'd move a lot faster.
To avoid a disaster.

You've got to choose with choice...
To want to feel a better mood.
And not to do it to prove.
But to do it for you.
Oh,
You've got to choose with choice...
To get in the mood to move.

If you had more discipline,
And did it without end...
You'd move a lot faster.
To avoid a disaster.

If you ate more protein,
To keep your body lean...
You'd move a lot faster.
And avoid,
A disaster.

You've got to choose with choice...
Yes you do.
Let it be said,
That...
You've got to choose with choice.
Yes you do.
Say...
You've got to choose with choice.
It's not a mistake.
You can not fake it.
You've got to choose with choice,
If a better you is due.

You've got to choose with choice.
Only you.
Yes you do.
You've got to choose with choice.
To get that better attitude.
Yes you do.

If you ate more protein,
To keep your body lean...
You'd move a lot faster.
And avoid a disaster.

Yeah...
You've got to choose with choice,
To put away the munches...
And that nibbling that you do too!
You've got to choose with choice...
To want a better attitude
Yes you do.
Yes...
You've got to choose with choice,
To reveal the new YOU!
But just don't say it not to do.
'Cause...
Only you've got to choose with choice,
To reveal the new YOU!
And choose with choice,
To reveal the new YOU!
Choose with choice,
To reveal that new YOU!

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
