Why I Walk
by Ed Cunningham

Why Do I Walk? Tain’t no Mystery
Wanna have a Good Medical History
Helps them blood cells circulate, Great for the Lungs
Great for the Ticker, can’t nothin’ Getcha in
better shape quicker.
Feels so healthy, feels so sweet, pumpin’my arms
and flappin my feet moldin my muscles, firmin’ my form, pantin’ like a Pack Mule, sweatin’ up a storm
Keeps me youthful, keeps me loose.
Tightens my tummy and shrinks my caboose.
Beats bein’ sluggish
Beats being lazy
Why do I walk? Maybe I’m crazy.
