FEATURED VOXPOP samsmith614 Since game design is a business, I decided to see what's really selling well for the PS4. I did this search a week ago, and at the time, out of the top 20 bestsellers on Amazon 10 had not even been released yet. By now some have been released. But others still have not. And yet others...

DAILY MANIFESTO

Super Mario Bros. The 8-Bit Opera (with Lyrics!)

Posted on Monday, November 28 @ 08:45:50 Eastern by


Music, lyrics, and editing by Jon Kaplan and Al Kaplan. Mario performed by Daniel Chaney.

Lyrics below transcribed by yours truly!

It's-a me, Mario!
It's-a me, Mario!
So I'm off to find the princess
Magic Mushroom, make-a me tall
Then I take a pretty flower
It-a give me fireball
But the turtle, he-a touch me
And I'm back to being small
And I've got-ta be a-careful not to...

It's-a me, Mario!
It's-a me, Mario!
I'm-a jumping on the goomba
And I make 'em go a squish
Then I'm swimming underwater
with the pesky jellyfish
These-a two-a Hammer Brothers
They are difficult to kill
And the cannons, they a-shoot the Bullet Bill

Now I run away from Lakitu, who chase me in the cloud
Try to go inside the tunnel, but-a no, I'm not allowed
Climb-a the vines, take-a the coins [vines pronounced "veens"]
And now I'm really on a roll
When I finish, slide the flag-a down the pole

I'm invincible!
I'm invincible!
Now I touch a-you and a-you dying
Cause I'm invincible!
Oh, dee turtles and goombas or ghosts
I'm like, "Back off, I'm eating a ghost!"
I'm invincible!
So invincible!

Now I jump up on the ceiling, cause this level really tough
I a-take a-magic portal zone that skip a lot of stuff
I love finding you a princess and-a make-a you my wife
On my way I got to chase the extra life

It's a me, Mario!
It's a me, Mario!
Now I reach the final castle, it's-in-a Bowser's evil lair
Such a terrible hassle, there's a-lava everywhere
I defeat a-you, the Koopa King, but never it-a fall
You, I jump, I run, and look, a-no more floor!

(Princess) You came for me!
(Mario) It's a-me!
(Princess) You came for me!
(Mario) Let's a-get out of here!
(Princess) You came for me!
(Mario) You is-a free now!
(Princess) You came for me!
(Mario) Thanks to Mario!
(Princess) And now that you've taken a rest
(Princess) It is time to begin your next quest

It's a-me, Mario!
It's a-MEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!
