Original HUNDO Theme Song"The Roller Coaster" by Dave Boylan
|"Sunlight breaks, the wheels are moving Far above this town I’m cruising
I've put behind those things that held me in my chair
For I am but a child spinnin’ Racing through this tree-line grinnin’
And I’m wishin’ you could see the things I’ve seen up here… Listen to and buy the song!
