Take a Hike

painting

Portrait of Dr Gachet, by Vincent Van Gogh

Go, go, go, go, go, go, go, go,

Get your bustle off that chair!
Get outside and breathe the pure country air!
Find a good stick, rugged and thick,
And tramp off your nervousness, your hellish despair! Woah,

Get some hustle in your step!
Get outside and move with vigor and pep,
Chin up, don’t slouch!
Up off that couch!
And take a, take a, take a, take a hike!

Feeling down, as melancholic as a whippoorwill?
You’re brooding, panic stricken, like you’ve been through the mill?
You get that horrid dread at the pit of your gut,
You’re too near the edge?
You’re stuck in a rut? Well,

Get your bustle into gear!
Get out and blaze a trail to your next frontier!
Chin up, don’t slouch, up off that couch,
Find a good stick, sturdy and thick,
Take your life back! Go on the counter attack!
Dont be polite, pick up the gauntlet and fight!
And take a, take a, take a, take a
Take a, take a, take a, take a,
Take a, take a, take a, take a HIKE!
