The Lyrics

Uh--you know they've made a movie of this, right?
(jazzy instrumental intro—techno-popped for today’s audience)

Here it comes! Here comes “Speed Racer”!
It’s a movie redux!
It’s a movie
And it’s based upon cartoons from the ‘60s!
Japanimation, but they went and filmed it live.
They made a copy of the powerful Mach 5!
Suppose the odds are against it? It’s been 40 years—redo!
Will the Gen X and Y’ers come and see it through?

Earn, Speed Racer!
Earn, Speed Racer!
Earn, Speed Racer, earn!

This known material
Should rake the money in—ka-ching!—
With movie tie-ins
At McDonald’s or at Burger King
And merchandise at Toys R Us!

Dough, Speed Racer!
Dough, Speed Racer!
Dough, Speed Racer, dough!
