The now-famous* end music to Sonic the Hedgehog 2 on the Sega Megadrive.** This was recorded for DocFuture's wonderful Let's Play thread, in which he showcased the rare and little-known Sonic 2 Special Edition for the Sega CD/32X peripherals, and in which I totally pre-empted that literal-music-video craze.

Watch the masterpiece that is the complete Sonic 2 Special Edition walkthrough here:
Everyone always asks what the lyrics are to the last verse. They are thus:
Grass and they are hooted all day
(Hope no cats are eaten)
Put head in moon and call "Moomin!"
And that's our mighty day
Donkey rode on the dead
Throw your mum off a wall and a heap
The leader came home
Sonic 2! (Special Edition, for the Sega CD / 32X peripherals!)
The reason for that verse is as follows:
EDIT: And now everyone's started asking about the rest of the lyrics. So:
So we've reached the end and finished Sonic 2
Look at Tails in greyscale with his tiny mates
He looks quite concerned
And now he's getting his plane out as well, look
(Watch my stuff, Clucks, while I'm gone)
(Why does he need a plane?)
Off he goes then
(Hasn't he got his tails? How's he of use at all?)
Hope he's there in time
(What is the point of him?)
Sonic's gone all yellow and he's falling down...
Look at the birds behind the plane (that's a fair few Flickies)
I know a bloke who hated this
'Cause he finished it too fast
As you might have seen him claim
But I loved it up
And the comics were good
(For the record, I'm talking about the UK comics. They were good!)
* I mean the actual music is famous, not my version.
** yeah, MEGADRIVE.
