LYRICS: Cheetahs, ven aquí, vamos a correr!
One day you will chart your plan, in the wild take action when you can
Others will look to you so take a stand
If you cast your net too wide
You won’t go anywhere just side to side
To find the path that lights your way
A lign your heart and mind and fire away
Run toward what you desire
And you’ll go running far, Your heart and mind are the stars
You’ll go running far, faster than a racing car (Repeat)
Your big lungs will help u run, and your big heart will pump oxygen
Every bone in your body working as one
You will use your spots to hide, from the predators on every side
But when it gets down to the wire
Y ou will use your speed so fire away
Run toward what u desire
Alright my little cheetahs, who’s ready to run?
Listen up, gather ‘round because I want u to run with me!
Running (5x) STOP, 1, 2, 3, 4
Running (6x) STOP, 1, 2, 3, 4
Running running STOP, 1, 2 Running running STOP 1, 2
Running STOP 1, Running STOP 1
Running STOP Running STOP, Wooo!
Excellent running my little cheetahs!
You can go for miles and miles and miles
