Hello!
Your hero has come to steal the show
It’s-a me! It’s Mario!
Each year at Nintendo, it’s always the sa-me.
Mario stars in another new game.

And why
Should a plumber guy rank so high above the rest?
Because, my powers and might put up a fight
that makes me the best. (yes oh yes!)

Fire Flowers burn you to a crisp
Mushroom might a princess can’t resist
Your battle’s lost and mine is won. Our match is done when we begin
Mama Mia, It’s-a Mario, and I’m-a gonna win!

And yet
You know, I feel a little pity
for you my friends, when we contend.
For once we have competed, my journey continues,
While your game ends (You comprehend?)

And dear little brother Luigi,
There’s always a place, a place for you.
As long as I’m still Player One,
You will be Player Two.

Super Leaf will take me to the sky
Star-man power – touch me and you die
Your battle’s lost and mine is won. Our match is done when we begin
Mama Mia, I’m-a Mario, and I’m-a gonna win!
