lyrics

Well I
Felt down felt so sad
Couldn't
Get my self back on track
So I took a walk to my doctor to see what could be done
He said
I'm sorry, you need help son
But I
Got just the right prescription
what you need is a dose of hundred fifty CCs of fun

The guy in the cloud signals with his lights
And you wave at me as you're wearing heels and revving your bike

The light's turnin' green
My engine is startin'
That's why we like to go
like to go karting

Though I
Missed the boost I can catchup
gonna
pass by and drop bananas
And as I drift right into the curve I leave a few more in the dust
shoot a
green shell, his tail's draggin'
shoot a
red shell at his badwagon
And soon I find that I have been turned upside down this Mobius

When I hit anti-grav, well I can feel the breeze
and I notice thatI I get a big boost when you bump into me

The light's turnin' green
My engine is startin'
That's why we like to go
like to go karting

We’ll cruise on through the square
On the turnpike, see it all
We’ll skip right through the meadows
Window shop at the mall
We'll skate over the lake
and swim on by the shoals
make great time on the clock
livin' on the edge of rainbows

[interlude]

you are
my love and my rival
but now
this lap is the final
We've both raced our journey together but one of us must win
I'm in
second place but I can tell
that’s the
sound of a nearing blue shell
But you honk your super-horn to stop it and drive off with a grin

You slide into first, but I feel gratitude
‘cause there is no way I would have come this far without you


The light's turnin' green
My engine is startin'
That's why we like to go
like to go karting
