Faster than a rocket,
or a speeding bullet train,
the Cyclone Kid streaks down the street
then whizzes back again.
His legs are pounding pistons,
his feet just fly away
as he whooshes wildly up and down
his personal speedway.
There seems no way to stop him,
but there’s one thing you can do:
just shout out loud ‘chocolate cake’
and he’ll race right up to you.
