Take a deep breath, then some more
Do not hurry, three-and-four,
Spirit, grace, plasticity are emphasized
All around strengthening
In the mornings sobering
(If youíre still alive, of course) is exercise.
Those of you who have clean floor
Can lie down, three-and-four,
Do the exercises and donít say a word
Try to get rid of the tension
You will learn to pay attention
Take a deep breath so it really, really hurts.
Very active íround the world
Is the flu, and-three-and-four,
The desease is widening and deepening
If youíre frail - you will die
So in order to survive
Take a cold wet towel, rub yourself with it.
Now please donít talk at all
Do the sit-ups till you fall
Try your hardest not to look all grim and cross
If you canít stand any longer
Rub yourself with something colder
Then proceed to shower which is right across.
Those of you who are fatigued
Weíre not afraid of Arctic and Antarctic
Our main professor Joffe
Proved to us that booze and coffee
Can be both replaced by sports and prohylactic.
Weíre not scared by lifeís pace
In response we run in place
Even total novice will be happy here
Wonderful: from the beginning
No oneís losing, no oneís winning
Stationary running is agreeable.
