Promotes Reduced Sedentary Behavior

Verse 1:

On the couch I watch TV
Then my momma says to me
Get up, get up, get up right now
We’ll have fun, I’ll show you how

Chorus:

Yebo let’s go Yebo!
Aweh let’s play Aweh!
Walk or run, skip in the sun
Ride a bike, go on a hike
Climb or swing, let’s hear you sing
Yebo let’s go Yebo!

Verse 2:

Video games, they can be fine
Just don’t play them all the time.
Get up and move it’s oh so good
So for goodness sake you should

Bridge:

Go outside and play awhile
You will love your active style
Use your mind and body too
Show your family what you can do

Tag:

Yebo let’s go Let’s go!
Aweh let’s play Aweh!
Yebo let’s go Let’s go!
