Yesterday, while cleaning up my media center, I found my copy of Ratchet & Clank: Into The Nexus, which I bought sometime before Christmas last year. I had been pretty excited about this game pre-release, what with it being the first "traditional", albeit shorter than usual,...

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!!!!!
