English Theme Song

[Translation]
SOMETIMES YOU'VE GOT TO TAKE IT EASY

Let's go! Sometimes you've got to take it easy, Speed
We'll leave the city behind, the crows go "caw"
Falling back, pulling ahead
We're tail to nose
Nose to tail
Now some busy crows on the way home have passed us by
Ah don't let it get you down
Why not go for a stroll, Speed
Trixie, Spritle, Chim Chim, Speed

Let's go! Sometimes you've got to let your cares go, Speed
We're on a country road, the pigs go "oink"
Falling back, pulling ahead
We're tail to nose
Nose to tail
Now some hungry little piggies have passed us by
Ah don't let it get you down
Why not go on a date, Speed
Trixie, Spritle, Chim Chim, Speed

Let's go! Sometimes you've got to take it slow, Speed
We're at the seaside, the whales go "whoosh"
Falling back, pulling ahead
We're tail to nose
Nose to tail
Now a newborn whale has passed us by
Ah don't let it get you down
Why not stay for tea, Speed
Trixie, Spritle, Chim Chim, Speed

Here are the lyrics to the Speed Racer theme song. If you've ever wondered, yes, it's the same melody as the original Japanese song.

Here he comes, here comes Speed Racer
He's a demon on wheels
He's a demon and he's gonna be chasing after someone
He's gaining on you so you better look alive
He's busy revving up the powerful Mach Five
And when the odds are against him and there's daaangerous work to do
You bet your life Speed Racer's gonna see it through

Go Speed Racer
Go Speed Racer
Go Speed Racer go

He's off and flying as he guns the car around the track
He's jamming down the pedal like he's never coming back
Adventure's waiting just aheeeeeeeeaaaaad

Go Speed Racer
Go Speed Racer
Go Speed Racer Go!

And now that your gas pedal foot is pressed to the floor, and you're just itching to sing along, listen to the theme song itself! (App. 0.6 Mbytes, wav)
