Super Mario Bros theme song has actual lyrics and you cannot unhear it

Beware, you might be whistling this one all weekend

Posted by

So it turns out all these years of humming the Super Mario Bros theme song and there were actually lyrics? Yes that’s right, in 1985 fans submitted lyrics for the song to a Japanese radio station, and it later became official after Nintendo¬†pressed it on vinyl. Having been somewhat lost in obscurity for all this time, the track is now available to enjoy digitally… if you have a Wii, Wii U, or 3DS, via the Joysound karaoke game. Of course, the entire song is in Japanese, which might be a fun way to learn a new language, but some of the translated lyrics include:

“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!”
