The Lyrics

Enjoy the parody!
You see a blue streak speedin’ by,
It’s too fast for your eyes to see it.
Down on South Island
You stop and you sense certain doom.
Some Doctor’s makin’ robots
From the fauna.
You feel all right
When you hear that sonic boom.

Well, now you step aside
And you watch that dude as he races.
Gonna fight through the pain to see that Doc get pwned.
Competition from other faces,
But that dude, he’s holdin’ his own.
Way on down south…
Way on down south, Green Hill Zone.

Check out his friend Tails,
This cat never fails.
And though he’s a sidekick,
He always grabs his share of golden rings.
Yes, and an old tool belt is all he really needs
When he gets up to boogie down and do his thing.

And Knuckles doesn’t mind if he doesn’t make the scene,
He’s got that guardian job; he’s doin’ all right.
He can guard his home from threats; they won’t succeed.
Kickin’ it up all day and night
With the Sultan…
With the Sultan of Speed.

And now Rouge and Shadow,
They’re doin’ their work in the darkness.
Tough and dressed in her best bodysuit
And his hover soles.
They don’t give a damn ‘bout any dubstep-playin’ band;
It ain’t what they call rock ‘n roll.
And the Sultan…
Yeah, the Sultan hits his goal!
His goal.

[guitar solo]

And then Eggman,
He crashed right down in a gloomy bog.
And says at last
Just as the freedom rings:
“That’s it! I just hate that hedgehog!”
Sonic’s runnin’ past;
His world is freed.
He is the Sultan…
He is the Sultan of Speed.
