Getting strong, getting strong (Anthony: Hey, that's right. Getting strong, right.)

Getting strong, getting strong (Anthony: Getting strong.)

Getting strong

Anthony: (chuckling) Skipping.

Greg: Skipping with a rope, skip, skip, skip

Anthony: I like this.

Greg: Getting strong, getting strong

Getting strong, getting strong

Getting strong, getting strong (Anthony: I'm getting strong. Yes, I'm really doing that. I'm getting strong. Yeah.)

Getting strong, getting strong

Getting strong, getting strong

Getting strong, getting strong (Anthony: Oh, I'm getting strong. Yes, wow, yeah! This is fun!)

Getting strong
