Flashbeagle - 04 Peppermint Patty's PE Program (I'm in Shape)

"Peppermint Patty's P.E. Program (I'm in Shape!)" as heard on the Flashbeagle soundtrack album.

"Peppermint Patty's P.E. Program (I'm in Shape!)" is a song from the 1984 TV special It's Flashbeagle, Charlie Brown. It is sung while Peppermint Patty is coaching her friends in gym class. The song contains an obvious reference to Toni Basil's 1979 bubble gum pop song "Mickey" with its cheerleader chant-like chorus of "Hey, Mickey! Hey, Mickey!"

Lyrics

Charlie Brown: Gee, that little red-haired girl sure is cute.
Peppermint Patty: Y'know, Chuck, I may not be as cute as that little red-haired girl, and I may not have naturally curly hair like Frieda, and I may not be as smart as Lucy, but I've got one thing none of them has: I'm in shape!
I run five miles every morning,
I do a hundred pushups every day,
I pedal every night, take a swim, take a hike,
I'm in shape, I'm in shape, I'm in shape!
Others: She's practicing Peppermint Patty's PE program.
She's in shape, she's in shape, she's in shape!
Peppermint Patty: When other kids are fading at the finish,
When all the others fail to break the tape,
I saunter round the track and wave to Daddy.
I'm in shape, I'm in shape, I'm in shape.
Others: She's practicing Peppermint Patty's PE program,
She's in shape, she's in shape, she's in shape!
Peppermint Patty: Hey Linus, get in shape,
Pretty soon it'll be too late.
Hey, Linus! Hey, Linus! 
Hey, Chuck, you know how,
Get in shape, do it now.
Hey, Chuck! 
Others: Hey, Chuck!
Peppermint Patty: Hey, Chuck!
Others: Hey, Chuck!
Peppermint Patty: Everybody get fit.
Stop thinkin' about it, this is it.
Lucy, Linus, Schroeder, Sally, everybody work!
Others: AAAUGHH!!
Peppermint Patty: So if you want to follow my example,
You're gonna have to work, there's no escape.
You gotta get with Peppermint Patty's PE program,
Get in shape, get in shape, get in shape!
Others: She's practicing Peppermint Patty's PE program.
She's in shape!
Peppermint Patty: I'm in shape!
Others: She's in shape!
Peppermint Patty: I'm in shape, I'm in shape!
Others: She's in shape!
Peppermint Patty: I'm in shape!
Others: She's in shape!
Peppermint Patty: I'm in shape!
Others: Shape! In shape! In shape!

Trivia

  • In the TV version, "Hey Linus" is used, but in the album version "Hey Snoopy" is used. Also, during said part, the other children do not repeat the "Hey Linus" chant in the TV version, but they do repeat the "Hey Snoopy" chant in the album version.
