This is repeated throughout the song over the C F# progression.
I just indicated an open C chord to illustrate the rythym of the
C portion of the progression.  You can play any form of the C chord
you want.

C                        F#
Vigor, vim, vitality and punch
C                              F#
The ability to act on a sudden hunch
F                   G
Nerve to tackle the hardest thing
     F                   G
With feet that climb and hands that cling
  F                   G
A heart that never forgets to sing

       A    D/A
That's pep
       A    D/A

       A    D/A B E D (Then back to tab note 1) for 4 bars
That's pep

C                           F#
Sand and grit in a concrete base
C                             F#
A friendly smile on an honest face
F                        G
Spirit that helps when another's down
F                      G
Know how to tackle the blackest frown
F                    G
Loves it's neighbor, loves it's town

       A    D/A
That's pep
       A    D/A

Then back to the tab note 1.

C                                F#
Say "I will" for you know I can
C                                F#
Look for the best in every man
F                     G
Meet each thundering knockout blow
F                G
Come back with a smile 'cause you know
       F                    G
You'll get the best of the whole damn show

       A    D/A
