The Lyrics

I've noticed that sometimes when I complete a parody it's much easier to go on with a second one on the same theme, so here's the follow-up to yesterday's "On Legs Near Finito" (which was a much harder write and is a much better song, but aren't sequels always a tad lame?).

A YouTube version of the original song can currently be found here:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-aWcXlG1sgY
I'm always happy when I run
I'm always happy jogging unabated
And during fartlek fully undulated
I'm always happy when I run

You know I'll even head for tracks gone bad
And out in winter storms when fully clad
I'm always happy when I run

Full velocity down…
Full velocity down the street
Full velocity down…
Full velocity down the street

I'm always happy when I run
I wish I could proceed so all day long
I'm always trying hard to pelt along
I'm always happy when I run

I don't fear running in the dark
My one discomfort's some nails not grown back
And sometimes chafing on my you-know-what
I'm always happy when I run

I'll get the new-itch for a seasoned shoe
Then I go out and by a pair or two
I'm kinda giddy on the run

Full velocity down… (Full velocity down)
Full velocity down the street (Full velocity down)
Full velocity down… (Full velocity down)
Full velocity down the street (Full velocity down)
Full velocity down… (Full velocity down)
Full velocity down the street (Full velocity down)
Full velocity down… (Full velocity down)

Yes it is my cup of tea
Though turtle more than hare

I'm always happy when I run
You know I've forty shoes in my possession
I've Runner's High after each practise session

I'm always happy when I run (Full velocity down the street)
I'm always happy when I run (Full velocity down the street)
I'm always happy when I run (Full velocity down the street)
I'm always happy when I run (Full velocity down the street)
I'm always happy when I run (Full velocity down the street)
