There are lyrics for the Super Mario Bros. theme

Posted on December 1, 2015 by (@NE_Brian) in General Nintendo, News

Did you know that the Super Mario Bros. theme song has lyrics? That’s actually something that was made public many, many years ago, but it’s not widely talked about today.

The lyrics were originally submitted by fans to a Japanese radio station. Nintendo eventually made them official, and a recorded version of the song was released on vinyl. Listen to it below.

Since the lyrics are in Japanese, you might have some trouble understanding what they are in English. But luckily, a translation can be found after the break!

Today, full of energy, Mario is still running, running

Go save Princess Peach! Go!

Today, full of energy, Mario runs

Today, full of energy, jumping!

Today, full of energy, searching for coins

Today, keep going, Mario!

Get a mushroom – it’s Super Mario!

Get a flower – it’s Fire Mario!

Goomba! Troopa! Buzzy Beetle! Beat them all!

Mario is always full of energy and strong!

Today, full of energy, Mario is still running, running

Go and beat the Koopa tribe, go!

Today, full of energy, Mario runs

Today, full of energy, jumping!

Today, full of energy, searching for coins

Today, keep going, Mario!

Get a star – become invincible!

Quickly, go save Princess Peach!

Lakitu! Blooper! Cheep Cheep! Beat them all!

Mario is always full of energy and strong!

Today, full of energy, Mario is still running, running

He’s made it to the castle and gets fireworks!

Lightly sidestepping the Hammer Bros.

Show the last of your power, Mario!

It’s been a long journey but it’s nearly at an end

You’ve done it, you’ve done it! You’ve defeated Bowser!

Princess Peach says “Thank you”

Mario’s got a great big heart!

Mario’s adventure is over for now, but

Mario’s dream lives forever…

As for why this is popping back up in the news? Starting today, the song will be available through the karaoke platform Joysound on Wii U, Wii, and 3DS.

    Im sorry but there is only one true set of lyrics to the Mario song and it goes something like this:

    Swing your arms from side to side 
    Come on, it’s time to go! 
    Do the Mario! 
    Take one step, and then again. 
    Let’s do the Mario, all together now! 
    You’ve got it! 
    It’s the Mario! 
    Do the Mario! 
    Swing your arms from side to side 
    Come on, it’s time to go! 
    Do the Mario! 
    Take one step, and then again. 
    Let’s do the Mario, all together now!

    Come on now, just like that!
