The Lyrics

I'm at

**Boo is a character from the Mushroom Kingdom (Nintendo games largely oriented around Mario) Boo is a wide variety of ghosts who usually play as a bad guy, but a playful one. Boo has appeared as a neutral character however, and even a playable one in several games, which I make reference too in the song. If you are not familiar with Nintendo or Mario the song may be hard to understand--if you followed Nintendo big time for a long period of time--then most of the references will likely be obvious.

Akira Yamaoka is a video game musician, but he's actually entertaining, this particular song was from Silent Hill 4 and was introduced to me through Karaoke Revolution Volume 3, I think you should check him out if you are looking for something new and unique, I enjoy his music. Original Song
They got Luigi scared
Their house is kinda scary
One said that ghosts don't die, and it laughed at me

and one's playing tennis too
Even Go-Karts they're haunting
I need E. Gadd's ghost vacuum
but the task is rather daunting

I'm scared while searching for boos
They'll scare you and they'll chase you
Can't stare or he'll hide from you
Must wait 'til they come for you

Their history's been found
King Bowser brought them out
but Boos are like bunnies there's more each week

The castle was just their first mark
and they spread when it got dark
They are cute and sorta cool
If you trust them you're a fool

I'm here and fighting big boos
They're haunting some game boards too
They like to steal from you
They hate flashlights and lamps too

He's at the golf course too and Soccer lawns
There's no more places they won't come into
to haunt you

In fear I'm watching for ghouls
The pink ones really hurt you
They love Merry Go Rounds too
Those playful Casperish Boos

I'm scared
I'm hunting down boos
They hide too
A whole lot, A whole lot of boos
Hope I catch them soon
Scary Boos
Scary Boos

This would be a very strange choice of original song if it wasn't for that Karaoke Revolution project that you're working on. Don't really know why this or Snake Eater are on Karaoke Revolution (Other than to promote and advertise their games). Good choice of turning this video game song into a song about a different video game.

Big boos and that crazy music. NES to 64 player, I'm just getting use to Smash Brothers Brawl and the wii.

TSB will probably be jealous of your work here. Vid -game music is getting lots of underground love, the way cartoon music and cocktail jazz did a few years back. I'll listen later because I know zilch about this song and most of the subject matter itself--and give you a presumptive 555.

I totally agree with Agrimorfee here!
