By Author

​During the kick-off of the 2013 My Heart Challenge, the student choir from St. Vincent de Paul School captured the entire crowd with an amazing performance of "Be Heart Smart" - a song full of messages about ways to be heart healthy. This may be the cutest video you watch all week.

Watch the full, extended version of the song,​ and in case you didn't catch all the lyrics, here they are in print:
 

It's easy to spend all day long just snackin' and yackin' with friends.

On the net, never breaking a sweat or taking a deep breath.

Get up and exercise. The habits we form today will last all of our lives.

Eat fruits and vegetables. Don't smoke. Drugs? Don't even think about it!

Take care of your heart. Take care of your health. It's time you start taking care of yourself.

Watch what you eat. Get on your feet. Can you feel the beat?

Be Heart Smart

Take care of your heart. Take care of your health. It's time you start taking care of yourself.

Watch what you eat. Get on your feet. Can you feel the beat?

Be Heart Smart

It's easy to say, "I promise I'll start working out another day."

Then you sit, doing nothin' bout it. So lazy that you'll get...

You try to justify, sayin' your too busy to go to the gym tonight. "I'll do it tomorrow." But then.... What? A little voice keeps tellin' ya.

Take care of your heart. Take care of your health. It's time you start taking care of yourself.

Watch what you eat. Get on your feet. Can you feel the beat?

Be Heart Smart

Take care of your heart. Take care of your health. It's time you start taking care of yourself.

Watch what you eat. Get on your feet. Can you feel the beat?

Be Heart Smart

That little voice keeps saying over and over again too...

Exercise. Exercise. Exercise. Exercise.

Eat right. Eat right. Eat right. Eat right.

Don't smoke. Don't smoke. Don't smoke.

It's easy to see that when you take care of your body you will feel great.

Then you'll say, "I should have done this earlier."

"I have so much energy!"

It's not too late to get a fresh start and work out every day.

Then people will say to you.... What? "You're looking so much better."

Take care of your heart. Take care of your health. It's time you start taking care of yourself.

Watch what you eat. Get on your feet. Can you feel the beat?

Be Heart Smart

Take care of your heart. Take care of your health. It's time you start taking care of yourself.

Watch what you eat. Get on your feet. Can you feel the beat?

Be Heart Smart

Be Heart Smart. Be Heart Smart. Be Heart Smart. Be Heart Smart.

Exercise. Exercise. Eat right. Don't smoke and take care of your body.

Exercise. Exercise. Eat right. Don't smoke and be... Be Heart Smart.

A special thanks to the choir for sharing such an important message, and to Principal Mark Longe for engaging his school in the 2013 My Heart Challenge.
