From the music video.

Sugar Rush is one of the three theme songs in the film, Wreck-It Ralph. It is played when Ralph first enters the game, and later on during the end credits. The song was performed by the all female J-pop group, AKB48.[1][2] On March 25 2014, Thalía released her first children's album "VIVA KIDS, Vol. 1"[3] (Viva Kids, Volumen Uno) which features a cover of Sugar Rush.[4] Thalía then later released a music video for her version of Sugar Rush featuring animated children in a candy/dessert/etc. themed land on her YouTube channel on May 8th 2014.[5] See also, the soundtrack for Wreck-It Ralph.

Lyrics

Translation by Rachel Gravelle (rockleetist) via YouTube.[6] Every road that leads you
Every single turn that you can make
May not always be perfect
Winds you up - spins you out
You can't catch a break
And maybe sometimes life's not what you wanted and
Track is rough and the road goes on for miles ahead
When your thoughts turn sour make them sweet instead
S-U-G-A-R
Jump into your racing car
Say Sugar Rush!
Sugar Rush!
S-U-G-A-R
Jump into your racing car
Say Sugar Rush!
Sugar Rush!
Everybody has a bad day
Every racer has a day when they lose the race
Close your eyes - it's getting better
Don't let go of your dream of winning first place
And maybe sometimes our engine stalls a little while
It won't stop you from crossing the line up ahead
When your thoughts turn sour make them sweet instead
S-U-G-A-R
Jump into your racing car
Say Sugar Rush!
Sugar Rush!
S-U-G-A-R
Jump into your racing car
Say Sugar Rush!
Sugar Rush!
Come down the highway drift around the corner
On an open road
Keep it forward - pedal to the metal
Oh Oh Oh!
S-U-G-A-R
Jump into your racing car
Say Sugar Rush!
Sugar Rush!
S-U-G-A-R
Jump into your racing car
Say Sugar Rush!
Sugar Rush!
S-U-G-A-R
Jump into your racing car
Say Sugar Rush!
Sugar Rush!
S-U-G-A-R
Jump into your racing car
Say Sugar Rush!
Sugar Rush!
S-U-G-A-R
Jump into your racing car
Say Sugar Rush!
Sugar Rush!
S-U-G-A-R
Jump into your racing car
Say Sugar Rush!
Sugar Rush!
