Mary Kay Enthusiasm

01-12-2015 10:13 AM

Today, we are delighted to kick off a new series of blog posts: Mary Kay Mondays! Each Monday, we will bring you a story, quote, image or reminder about Mary Kay Ash, the lady behind The Mary Kay Foundation℠.

We welcome your participation too! If you have a story about Mary Kay Ash that you’d like us to consider, please email me at stacy.graves@me.com. I’d love to hear from you!

In her autobiography, Mary Kay told about a song contest that she held in the early years of the business. They sang the songs at Seminar and awarded prizes for the songs that generated the most enthusiasm. This one became a theme song and was used to kick off the Company’s special events in the early years. It’s sung to the tune of the beloved hymn “I've Got the Joy, Joy, Joy.”

If you have any videos of the Mary Kay Enthusiasm being sung, please share them in the comments below or on our Facebook page!

MARY KAY ENTHUSIASM

I’ve got that Mary Kay enthusiasm down in my heart,
Down in my heart, down in my heart.
I’ve got that Mary Kay enthusiasm down in my heart,
Down in my heart to stay!

I’ve got that Mary Kay enthusiasm down in my feet,
Down in my feet, down in my feet.
I’ve got that Mary Kay enthusiasm down in my feet,
Down in my feet to stay!

I’ve got that Mary Kay enthusiasm up in my head,
Up in my head, up in my head.
I’ve got that Mary Kay enthusiasm up in my head,
Up in my head to stay!

I’ve got that Mary Kay enthusiasm all over me,
All over me, all over me.
I’ve got that Mary Kay enthusiasm all over me,
All over me to stay!

Stacy Graves is Contributing Editor for The Mary Kay Foundation℠ blog. She really wanted to use the Mary Kay Enthusiasm song for her wedding recessional. Her husband even agreed! He loved the hymn behind it, and their reception was held at The Mary Kay Building. However, they couldn't convince their very traditional organist to go for it. Looking back now 16 years, she would have insisted.
