The Lyrics

See the song performed by Bob and Denise at www.youtube.com/watch?v=7-iV2jey_GE.
Young man
There's a class at the spa, it’s got
Women
Wearing tights and sports bras, they do
Poses
Known as Y-O-G-A
And most of the guys there are gay!

Focus
On your prana or breath, as the
Teacher
Guides you through every step, you’ll feel
Stronger
And more flexible too,
And you’ll learn a bunch of Hindu-----

It's time to get with the Y-O-G-A!
It's time to get with the Y-O-G-A!
Take a rollup pad
And a towel or two
They’ve got stretchy bands just for you!

It's time to get with the Y-O-G-A!
It's time to get with the Y-O-G-A!
You can make some new friends,
Even dress like a slob,
Take a break from your stupid job!!!

Young man,
Throw away your iPod, I said,
Young man,
How close are you to God? I said
Dammit,
Stop your texting for now
I can easily show you how!

Sun Pose!
Reaching up to the sky, or the
Cat Pose!
Arch your back up real high, now you’ve
Got it!
Let’s do Warrior Three
Don’t put too much weight on that knee!-----

It's time to get with the Y-O-G-A!
It's time to get with the Y-O-G-A!
If the Mountain Pose
Is an uphill slog
You can hang with the Downward Dog!

It's time to get with the Y-O-G-A!
It's time to get with the Y-O-G-A!
In Savasana pose
Sink right into the floor
Just relax but try not to snore!

Young man,
I was flabby like you, I was
Chunky!
Couldn’t tie my own shoes, I could
Not sit
Cross-legged on the floor
And my back was always so sore!

That's when
Someone came up to me,
Said, “Namaste”
That’s a pretty nice greeting it
Means that
I respect who you are
And the path you’ve chosen, go far!

It's time to get with the Y-O-G-A!
It's time to get with the Y-O-G-A!
If you make it to class
For fifteen or more years
You can touch your heels to your ears!!

Y-O-G-A! You'll stretch it with the Y-O-G-A!
Young man, young man, take a tip from this song!
Yoga! Yoga! Not tai chi or qi gong!

Y-O-G-A! You'll flex it with the Y-O-G-A!
Young man, young man, take a breath and sit down!
Young man, young man, get your ass on the ground!

Y-O-G-A! Yeah, get with the Y-O-G-A!
Young man, young man, time to make some new friends!
Young man, young man, every Friday at ten!

Y-O-G-A!
