Chickenfat, Reprise

Over dinner last night, Miles started singing — a familiar refrain, but not one I’ve heard from him before:

Push up! / 10 times! / Every morning. / Not just. Now and then… Give that chickenfat back to the chickens, and don’t be chicken again…!

Could not believe my ears. Thought the song was lost to the 70s, but nope — apparently his preschool teachers have the same great memory of it that many of us do, and have decided to use it as an intro-level exercise song (I don’t recall hearing it until 4th grade). The three of us ran into the office, cranked the MP3 version, and did jumping jacks together right in the middle of dinner.

Ironically, we were having chicken that night.
