Characters singing


Part 1[]

Austin: Racing day, it’s racing day. Racing day, it’s racing da-a-ay!

It’s not nervous pacing day, today’s the day we race!

I'm ready to race a long, long race, this race goes almost every place.

It’s fast, it’s long, it’s vast, it’s far, it starts out right here where we are.

When the finish line’s unfurled, we will have raced around the world.

When I’ve finished this long, long race, I hope, I hope I take first place!

Racing day, it’s racing day. Racing day, it’s racing da-a-ay!

It’s not sausage-casing day, today’s the day we race!

Today's the day we race! Today's the day we race!

Part 2[]

All: Racing day, it’s racing day. Racing day, it’s racing da-a-ay!

It’s not picture tracing day, today’s the day we race!

Tyrone: We’ll run somewhere that’s not right here, and while we do the crowd will cheer.

Uniqua: Through the forest, over the snows, across the ocean and then, who knows?

Pablo: Whoever is the first around will get to make that victory sound.

Austin: “Dun, da-daaa!” is what they’ll say at the end of racing day!

All: Racing day, it’s racing day. Racing day, it’s racing da-a-ay!

It’s not puppy chasing day, today’s the day we race!

Today's the day we race! Today's the day we race!

Part 3[]

All: Racing day, it’s racing day. Racing day, it’s racing da-a-ay!

It’s not doily lacing day, today’s the day we race!

Uniqua: A long, long, long, long way we’ve come...

Tyrone: get back where we started from.

Pablo: We’ve raced real hard, but now it’s time...

Austin: break that tape and cross that line!

All: Racing day, it’s racing day. Racing day, it’s racing da-a-ay!

It’s not self-effacing day, today’s the day we race!

Today’s the day we race! Today’s the day we race!
