Today I've got no-one to see And real life is kinda boring me So I go back to '85 And save the Princess for the millionth time I've got my overalls I shoot my fireballs I've got my brother by my side They call me Mario And that King Koopa's gonna die (These mushrooms make me kinda high) So let's go, Mario Grab those shrooms and grow Gotta save Princess Daisy Don't be slow Mario We can steal the show Gotta outshine Luigi This game is hard enough to play Without these spiky turtles in my way These mushrooms make me extra tall "Our Princess is in another castle" And for a chunky guy I can jump pretty high I'm gonna beat them in the end Bowser better stay down Or I'll just stomp his ass again (That mushroom guy's my only friend) And is her name Daisy, Toadstool or Peach? I play this game, suddenly I feel free Put on that racoon suit And those bunny ears too Strap on that cape and you'll Fly away...
