The Lyrics

Jack LaLanne is healthier than I am, and he's almost three times my age. His stunts of towing 80 boats through a harbor on his 80th birthday are part of his legend. Now, to celebrate his 90th... Don't be fooled, his mind is otherwise still sharp.
Twenty-six miles across the sea!
Jack is gonna swim it when he turns ninety!
Santa Catalina to Long Beach swims
LaLanne! LaLanne! LaLanne! LaLanne!

Water all around it eveyrwhere!
Jack is getting older but he don't care!
Jack is young at heart and stronger than a bear!
LaLanne! LaLanne! LaLanne! LaLanne!

It seems so crazy, twenty-six miles away!
Jack may not be using his bean!
He is the only one who'd be so crazy
to try this health nut's big harebrained scheme!

Twenty-six miles, so near, yet far!
It seems like a bet made up on drinks in a bar!
But he just might do it, he's a fitness star!
LaLanne! LaLanne! LaLanne! LaLanne!

Twenty-six miles across the sea!
Jack is gonna swim it when he turns ninety!
Santa Catalina to Long Beach swims
LaLanne! LaLanne! LaLanne! LaLanne!

Definately not your best stuff. Jack LaLenne is truly amazing. At 90 he looks like he's 20! I'm like you, out of shape. In fact, the last time I did a sit up was in the 6th grade when my teacher (a nun) yelled at me and said: "Patrick, SIT UP!"
