The Slowpoke Song [ VIDEO ]

I remember sharing this video about a year or so ago, when it first came out, but it was in Japanese. Now that is the English version was finally released, I decided to share that version on here too. Lyrics included below.

The Slowpoke Song Lyrics

Slow slow slow
Ah-oo what’s your story, Slowpoke?
Slow slow slow
Ah-oo what’s your story, Slowpoke?
Every night, you’re the one
Dreams of waking with the sun
But you sleep in ’til noon (Slowpoke)
Your pink hue
Is your color, through and through
I can see it’s the real you (Slowpoke)
Your big mouth
Like a supermarket door
Open seven/twenty-four (Slowpoke)
Your sweet tail sap
Is a yummy yummy snack
We’re hungry and we want more
(Slowpoke)
You’re so slow, that
Your picture never blurs
The speedometer concurs
(Slowpoke)
Slow slow slow
Ah-oo what’s your story, Slowpoke?
Slow slow slow
Ah-oo what’s your story, Slowpoke?

Lose your tail, that’s all right
It’ll grow back someday
That’s really cool (Slowpoke)
Dopey Pokémon, the
Category they settled on
Too bad for you (Slowpoke)
What word starts with “S”
And ends with letter “E”?
It’s obviously…(Sunstroke)
You fish with your tail
But you’re too slow when they bite
And so they swim out of sight (Slowpoke)
Your slow-motion roll has got a lot of soul
It’s your cruise control
(Slowpoke!)
Slow slow slow
Ah-oo what’s your story, Slowpoke?
Slow slow slow
Ah-oo what’s your story, Slowpoke?
You yawn a single time
Down comes the rain sublime
If the famous legend is true
But you’ve been yawning all day long
And the blue skies aren’t gone
You’ve got some explaining to do
A Shellder bites your tail
And then you become a Slowbro
That’s a dopey evolution (Slowpoke)
Everywhere you go
There are Slowpoke passing through
Maybe there’s one right behind you (Slowpoke)
Plodding, poky,
sluggish, tardy,
so late you’re early (Slowpoke)

Slow slow slow
Dude, what’s your deal, Slowpoke?
Slow slow slow
Ah-oo what’s your story, Slowpoke?
A great big Berry fell
Bonked you on the head
But you feel no pain (Slowpoke)
Your ears curl in—there’s a reason, you said
What was it again? (Slowpoke)
You just said “SLO”
Did you feel that Berry only just now?
You’re really somethin’ (Slowpoke)
Someday you’ll be Slowbro, or maybe even Slowking
Or you’ll just keep bein’ (Slowpoke)
Stand in a ring
Bite your buddy’s tail for lunch
What a happy looking bunch
Slowpoke!

Slow slow slow
Ah-oo what’s your story, Slowpoke?
Slow slow slow
Slowpoke!

  • The punchline is marijuana.

    • Brian Gundersen

      No it’s not. This is just the English version of the famous Japanese song…

      • D…. do you not know of Bob Marley, and reggae in general?

        • Brian Gundersen

          Yeah but the entirety of Reggae isn’t about marijuana. Maybe it started that way but you can’t say the entire genre and every artist is referencing it.

          • And the whole song is about being slow and dopey. “Your sweet tail sap
            Is a yummy yummy snack. We’re hungry and we want more. Lose your tail, that’s all right. It’ll grow back someday. Your slow-motion roll has got a lot of soul.”
            Yaahhhh… no allusions to a blunt there.

          • Brian Gundersen

            How ignornat can you be? It’s about how Slowpoke’s tail is sought after in the poke verse because people eat it. Slowpoke IS SLOW AND DOPEY. No allusions there…

            It’s just a silly song about Slowpoke referencing it’s lifestyle and how it’s dumb but still loved.

            I told you it’s created for the official company in Japan. This isn’t fan made,

          • I’d guess less than someone who can’t spell “ignorant.”

            The official company, Game Freak and The Pokemon Company, have slipped adult material into pokemon before, from human-pokemon sexual relations, to straight-up murder and death: irrelevant if it’s fan-made or not.

            Plus, after 20 years of +720 pokemon, and they make a Reggae song about Slowpoke??

            Indeed, how “ignornat” can one be?

          • Brian Gundersen

            Do you always stupidly judge people based on one accidental typo? Lol serious grow the fuck up.

            So when I was typing I accidentally write ignornat instead of ignorant, it doesn’t mean I can’t spell it properly…like you’ve never misspelled anything in your life…

            Just go back to your hippie lifestyle you pothead jerk, kill your brain with that shit so you won’t be able to poison the net with your comments.
