1 – HEALTHY IS GOOD FOR ME

[Altered Chorus]
Healthy is good for me
Healthy is good for me
Healthy is good for me
Healthy is good for me, woah!

[Verse 1]
This is my body, I only get one
So I gotta take good care of it to keep having fun
It’s fruit that I eat, it’s water I choose
Growing is my biggest job and I’m on the loose

[Chorus]
Healthy is good for me (My Body!)
Take a good look at me (My Body!)
Better like what you see (My Body!)
Because healthy is good for me (My Body!)

Healthy is good for me (My Body!)
Take a good look at me (My Body!)
Better like what you see (My Body!)
Because healthy is good for me (My Body!)

[Verse 2]
When I look in the mirror, what do I see?
I see a stronger person looking back at me
Because I love my body, love what I do
So I keep getting fresher with my food attitude, yeah

Yeah, that’s me!

[Chorus]

[Bridge]
My body is amazing from each thought to each toe
I feel it deep within me and right down to my soul
Because I look, think, react to my food
It nourishes my mind and thoughts and things that I do
Rice, beans, that healthy stuff
Make me wanna act my age and sprout right up
Milk or soy whatever you please
Help me grow into the person I want to be

Healthy is good for me
Healthy is good for me
Healthy is good for me
Healthy is good for me

[Chorus]

[Riff]
This is my body, yeah, my body, yeah
Healthy is good, healthy is good – woah-oh-oh
I only get one of these bodies, bodies, bodies – yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

2 – ENERGY

[Chorus]

Energy! Energy! Energy! Energy!

[Verse 1]

Life’s a race, you fall in line

But when you eat those healthy foods, you get a better time

Rev your engines, the starting line

Get the power from the foods that get you ready for the ride

Because your body needs…

[Chorus]

Energy! Energy! Energy! Energy!

[Verse 2]

To get to school, to take a test

Even when you daydream, you need the absolute best

To concentrate, to tell a joke

Better food will make the punchline jump right out of your throat

Because your body needs…

[Chorus]

Energy! Energy! Energy! Energy!

[Bridge]

Hey! Listen up, I got something to say

If sugars all you got for me, get out of my way

I’m looking for the kinds of foods that build up my game

I’m feeling good just like I should with what’s on my plate

Because I need energy for everything

Running, jumping, thinking, even when I’m sleeping

So here’s a thought I’m brewing over every day

My food is thinking for me so I’m choosing wisely

Energy for everything, energy for everything, energy for everything

That’s why I’ll be eating the best foods for me

[Verse 3]

And when you’re out, and hunger comes

And it seems it doesn’t matter what you’re grabbing at to eat for lunch

Remember what we said…

[Chorus x 3]

3 – GET ME GOIN’

[Spoken] Breakfast!

[Chorus]
Gotta g-g-get me goin’
Gotta g-g-get me goin’
Gotta g-g-get me goin’
Gotta g-g-get me breakfast!

Gotta g-g-get me goin’ Jump with Jill in the house!
Gotta g-g-get me goin’
Gotta g-g-get me goin’ ¡Salta con Jill en la casa!
Gotta g-g-get me breakfast!

[Spoken]
Mr. Desayuno, dropping on the scene of your morning routine, living proof that when you get breakfast in your life, you can turn getting up on the wrong side of the bed into the right side of the bed. Yeah, I’m dreamin’ of a world where it’s sunny-side up so I’m rockin’ so hot that the beat pops up. Hey. You ready to get this goin’? Ha.

[Verse 1]
I’ve been waiting all night ¡Adiós noche!
for this moment to arrive ¡Rise and shine, mi amigo!
I can hear my stomach growl You gonna hear me roar.
from at least a quarter mile 10-4, roger that!
Prowling for some energy Somebody feed this girl!
Hunting foods my body needs
My day will never stand a chance It’s ocho o’clock somewhere!
When I do this breakfast dance ¡Dímelo cantando!

[Pre-Chorus]
E-i-e-i-e-oh, e-i-e-i-e-oh, e-i-e-i-e-oh – It’s breakfast time!

[Chorus]

[Verse 2]
Grabbing up my spoon and bowl Cuchara y cuenco
pouring in my cereal ¡Leche semi-descremada!
Splash it with some low fat milk Make it rain, yo!
to give me that energy fill Not too much, gon’ get soggy
Toasting up some jam and bread Don’t drop it like it’s hot
Cooking up another egg ¡Huevos calientes!
Mixing yogurt up with fruit Hit it, DJ!
Or spin it all into a smoothie

[Pre-Chorus] Re-re-re-remix!!!

[Chorus]

[Spoken]
¡Esta canción me da hambre! This song makes me hungry! ¡Cántalo Jill! Sing it, Jill!

It’s the break of a long night fast! That’s why they call it… Breakfast!!

[Bridge]
Eat it at the table
At the table
Eat it at your desk
At the your desk
Eat it out your bookbag
Out your bookbag
BOTH: Break the fast yeah break the fast
Desayuno or a breakfast
All up in your morning checklist
Call me señor, call me mister
Can I get a shout out
“It’s Jill on the vocals!”
Breakfast! Breakfast!
Desayuno!
Mister! Señor! Jill!
BOTH: We duo!
English! Spanish!
BOTH: We just wanna say….

Was that too much? Let me slow it down… drop that beat, suelta el ritmo.

[Pre-Chorus]

4 – NATURE’S CANDY

[Verse 1]

Cantaloupe-cantaloupe-canta-do-bop-a-loupe

I’ve got a case of the munchies and I need something sweet

I won’t go grabbing candy fruit is what I need

I could go bananas Pears make me berserk

And yogurt on my pineapple is perfect for dessert

[Chorus]

Nature’s candy, Nature’s candy

Nature’s candy, Nature’s candy

I’ve got a sweet tooth for my favorite fruit

Nature’s candy

[Verse 2]

Strawberry-strawberry-straw-ba-do-bop-a-berry

I don’t need cotton candy, I don’t need jelly beans

You’ll find me with watermelon spitting out the seeds

Toast with avocado a slice of harmony

Or blend a smoothie with a frozen berry symphony

[Chorus]

[Bridge]

You know why I love fruit so much? Well, it’s sweeter than candy.

Cantaloupe-cantaloupe-canta-do-bop-a-loupe

But it’s even better than tasting better than candy.

Fruit is full of healthy stuff like vitamins and minerals and fiber that your body needs to grow big and strong.

Strawberry-strawberry-straw-ba-do-bop-a-berry

A great tastin’ food that’s great for you?! Well, that’s makes me wanna….

Tangerine-tangerine-tange-do-bop-a-rine

[Verse 3]

Vitamins and fiber complete my healthy checklist

And oh how sweet that such a treat could also be my breakfast

[Chorus]

I’ve got a sweet tooth for my favorite tooth, Nature’s candy

I’ve got a sweet tooth for my favorite tooth, Nature’s candy

5 – SUPERPOWER VEGETABLES

[Verse 1]

You think Superman is something, flying in to save the day

Faster than a speeding bullet, how did he get that way?

[Chorus Version 1]

Superpower vegetables

Great for my skin, my hair, my muscles, my eyes, my bones

Superpower vegetables

Great for my skin, my hair, my muscles, my eyes, my bones

Even Superman is a vegetable fan 100 miles an hour with peas and cauliflower

Woah, superpower vegetables!

[Verse 2]

Wonder Woman loves adventure, her power comes with ease

Because when it’s time for dinner she says, “I’ll have spinach, please”

[Chorus Version 2]

Superpower vegetables

Great for my skin, my hair, my muscles, my eyes, my bones

Superpower vegetables

Great for my skin, my hair, my muscles, my eyes, my bones

Have no fear Wonder Woman makes her veggies disappear

You better look quick there’ll be no more carrot sticks

Woah, superpower vegetables!

[Bridge]

Want to get fast, want to get strong! VEG OUT!

Want to get fast, want to get strong! VEG OUT!

The superpowers… strong muscles! awesome bones! healthy teeth! VEG OUT!

The superheroes… that’s YOU! VEG OUT!

7 – WATER

[Spoken] Hey!

[Verse 1]
One afternoon my mouth was dry for I had just run until I tired
My brow was wet from all the sweat that I had just perspired
My friend said, “Won’t you drink with me a soda from the vending machine?”
I shook my head and said instead that I drink water

[Chorus]
Water! Water! Water!
Oh, I drink water! Water! Water!
There’s nothing I would rather have than a cup of water in my hand
To sweat, to breathe, to poo & pee, that’s why I drink water!

[Verse 2]
My friend, he just stared at me like I was off my trolley
How could I turn down his drink, he said himself to me
I told him, “When you sweat and breathe, it’s water that your body needs!”
So we raised our glasses and we sing a toast to drinking water

[Chorus]
Water! Water! Water! Water!
Oh, I drink water! Water! Water! Water!
There’s nothing I would rather have than a pint of water in my hand
To sweat, to breathe, to poo & pee, That’s why I drink water!

[Dance Break]

[Verse 3]
So we went outside only to find our friend had kind of lost his mind
His thirst had him all flattened out like pancakes on the skittle
We ran to him and offered up some water from our drinking cup…
Drinking cup! “Why thanks, me lads, that’s quite refreshing!”
And there we were the three of us, a toast to drinking water

[Chorus]
Water! Water! Water! Water!
Oh, I drink water! Water! Water! Water!
There’s nothing I would rather have than a quart of water in my hand
To sweat, to breathe, to poo & pee, that’s why I drink water!
To sweat, to breathe, to poo & pee, that’s why I drink water!

9 – SPECIAL GLASSES

Oh-way-oh, yeah, yeah

[Verse 1]

I walked down the cereal aisle, and what did I see?

A cartoon on a cereal box was staring back at me

[Chorus]

My special glasses, for looking at my food

My special glasses, to help me see cartoons

It’s one of the easiest ways to tell if your food is healthy

Oh-way-oh, my special glasses

[Verse 2]

I walked down the snack aisle, and what did I see?

A cartoon on the cheesy puffs was staring back at me

[Chorus]

[Bridge A]

When you see a cartoon or someone with fame

On the side of a food box, don’t get too crazed

Get out your glasses and decide for yourself

Don’t let those cartoons trick you into forgetting about your health

[Chorus]

[Bridge B]

Now get on your glasses and take a look with me

You’re a rebel detective with the food police

Is there a cartoon on that cereal box? Oh yeah

Are you gonna think twice? Oh yeah

Is there a cartoon at the drive thru? Oh yeah

Are you gonna think twice? Oh yeah

Before you get sucked in to eating something, won’t you stop and think…

My special glasses, for looking at my food

My special glasses, to help me see cartoons

Oh-way-oh, my special glasses

[Spoken]

Get your hands up! Every body in the air! Make them go like, hey-ho-hey-ho-hey-ho-hey-ho. Your bones need calcium to be strong. But I’m not going to just talk about it. I’m not even going to just sing about it. I’m going to rap about it. Here. We. Go. Break it down!

[Chorus]

These are your bones, you’ve got to work them out


You’ve got to eat the foods that keep them growing strong


Say what? What!

Say what? What!


You’ve got to eat the foods that keep them growing strong

[Single Pre-Chorus]

These are your bones, these are your bones

[Verse 1]

Calcium. What? Calcium. What?

Represent with calcium to keep your bones strong


Milk, cheese, and yogurt – to name drop a few

I’m rolling with the stars of the bone building crew

[Double Pre-Chorus]

These are your bones, these are your bones

These are your bones, these are your bones

[Verse 2]

[Chorus]

Low fat milk! Low fat milk!

Low fat milk! Low fat milk!

[Bridge with Breakdance Solo]

I’m rapping about my bones because I want you to remember

Your bones needs calcium like your broccoli needs cheddar

You know what I’m talking about, you heard it all before

But now you know it better, because it’s milk that you pour

[Dance off Chorus x 2]


These are your bones, you’ve got to work them out – These are your bones, you’ve got to work them out


You’ve got to eat the foods that keep them growing strong – You’ve got to eat the foods that keep them growing strong

Say what? – Say what?

Say what?
– Say what?

You’ve got to eat the foods that keep them growing strong – You’ve got to eat the foods that keep them growing strong

[Spoken]

We’ve got to move that body, yo, and we’ve got to eat right, too. You know what I’m saying? Oh yeah, you know what I’m saying. It’s because I’m rapping about Calcium. Yeah. Uh. Calcium. That’s a word.
