The Lyrics

I know the Sonic parodies I've written thus far have been gentle, lighthearted fun, but something occurred to me along the way: it can't be all that easy to be the Blue Blur. I mean, when you're able to run really fast, pull off all sorts of fancy moves and repeatedly get called upon to save the world because of it, it's gotta be pretty draining, which is why I wrote this one. Enjoy the parody!
On a long and lonesome highway in eastern Mobius,*
You can witness that blue hedgehog runnin’ to see what’s the fuss,
And he’ll stop that evil Doctor and a victory will be set for us.

But his thoughts will soon be wanderin’ the way they always do
When he’s runnin’ sixteen hours and he hasn’t got a clue,
And he’s sometimes feelin’ lonely; he just hopes his friends stay true.

Say, here he is, on his feet again.
There he is, breakin’ the cage.
Here he goes, in the limelight again.
There he goes, the next stage.

Well, he wants to get some chili dogs, stomach’s grumblin’ loud,
And he sees a fan upon him and he gets lost in the crowd,
He pretends it doesn’t bother him, but his time won’t be allowed.

Most times, he’ll give autographs, queried by the fans,
All the same old questions, from the US to Japan,
And he always seems so carefree, but most days he can’t stand.

Here he is, on his feet again.
There he is, breakin’ the cage.
Here he goes, in the limelight again.
There he goes, the next stage.

Out there in the Green Hills, he’s a million miles away,
When there’s danger on the line, he tries to save the day
As the stress runs through his body while he runs into the fray.

Later in the evening as he lies awake in bed
With the power of the Chaos Emeralds pulsing through his head,
He eats the day’s last chili dog rememberin’ what he’s said.

Now here he is, on his feet again.
There he is, breakin’ the cage.
Here he goes, in the limelight again.
There he goes, the next stage.

Ah, here he is, on his feet again.
There he is, breakin’ the cage.
Here he goes, in the limelight again.
There he goes…
There he goes!
