Super Mario Bros. Theme With Lyrics Included in Nintendo Japanese Karaoke Game

"Today, full of energy, Mario runs/Today, full of energy, jumping!/Today, full of energy, searching for coins"

I’m disappointed in myself for not knowing about this version of the Super Mario Bros theme song because it’s super cute and I’m making it my new ringtone. The song came out in 1985 after a Japanese radio station invited fans to send in lyrics. Nintendo ended up liking them, recorded the song, and will feature it on Joysound, their Japanese karaoke game for the Wii.

I couldn’t help smiling through the song and the translated lyrics are adorable as hell:

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…
