"Mr. Apollo" as written by Neil Innes and Vivian Stanshall....
I have seen Mr. Apollo
Uproot trees with his bare hands
I have seen Mr. Apollo
Bodybuilding man

He's the strongest man
The world has ever seen
And if you take his courses
He'll make you big and rough
[Spoken]: And you can beat up bullies 'til they cry "Oh Lord, oh crikey, let go you rotter, don't punish me!"

When you're tough
(You're very fit)
Your voice is rough
(It sounds like bricks)
You are so strong
(And proud of it)
Thanks to Mr. Apollo

Follow Mr. Apollo
Everybody knows he's the greatest benefactor of mankind
Follow Mr. Apollo
Everybody knows that a healthy body makes a healthy mind

He's the strongest man
The world has ever seen
And if you take his courses
He'll make you big and rough
[Spoken]: And you can kick the sand right back in their faces! Kick!

When you're tough
(You're very fit)
Your voice is rough
(It sounds like bricks)
You are so strong
(And proud of it)
Thanks to Mr. Apollo

Follow Mr. Apollo
Everybody knows he's the greatest benefactor of mankind
Follow Mr. Apollo
Everybody knows that a healthy body makes a healthy mind

[Spoken]: Yes. Just give me ten years of your life, and I'll trade in that puny flab for living muscle. Physique you desire! Strong. Shoulders to hold your shirt up. Five years ago I was a poor student at college; today, I am two separate gorillas. No tiresome exercises, no tricks, no unpleasant bending. Wrestle poodles and win! Play beach ball! Shave your legs! Look over walls! Tease people! Brush them aside as though they were matchsticks!

(Follow Mr. Apollo)
