The Lyrics

Funny how Sega came out with Sonic the Hedgehog and boasted that 'Genesis does what Nintendon't'...now, Sonic is on Gameboy Advance, and you can't even trade old Sega games in...yet Nintendo keeps putting out new systems...go figure
A long, long time ago,
I can still remember
How Atari used to make me smile
And I knew if I had my way,
That I would simply sit and play
And truly, I'd be happy for a while

Mario, he fought a monkey,
I see Kong, but where's the Donkey?
Princess is in peril,
Gorillas throwing barrels

I can't remember if I tried
To rescue Mario's kidnapped bride
But something touched me deep inside
About...this Mario guy

Oh my, my this here Mario guy
Super-powered Fire Flowers make his enemies fry
And the boys and girls take just one look and they sigh
Saying this will be the game that I buy,
This will be the game that I buy

The Princess, she fell in love
Mario'd been sent from God above,
That made Bowser's temper blow
So, he stole the girl to his dungeon home
And Mario found a few warp zones
But can you tell him where the next tunnel goes?

Mario, he brought his bro with him
They had to run, and had to swim
They both ate big mushrooms,
Man, that Bowser met his doom!

I was a kid in 1985
When the new Nintendo first came alive
But that's when games begun to thrive
About...this Mario guy

I started singing

My, my this here Mario guy
Super-powered Fire Flowers make his enemies fry
And the boys and girls take just one look and they sigh
Saying this will be the game that I buy,
This will be the game that I buy

Now in four years, all the fans had grown,
And soon, it was time to change the tone
And give them something new to see
When the year became nineteen-eighty-nine
It was now Nintendo's time to shine
And they brought Gameboy to you and me

We kids, no longer tethered down,
Played Mario games all over town
The TV sets were spurned,
Nobody was concerned

And while Sega tried to find its spark,
We all played Gameboy in the park
We even played games in the dark
About...this Mario guy

We were singing

My, my this here Mario guy
Super-powered Fire Flowers make his enemies fry
And the boys and girls take just one look and they sigh
Saying this will be the game that I buy,
This will be the game that I buy

Hocus pocus, Sega's lost its focus
The dorks, they thought Sonic 'Hog would smoke us
Sales are low and falling fast
They landed right flat on their @$$
The gamers, tired of the boring past
They left them, and moved up to a higher class

Now, the year was nineteen ninety six
When Nintendo showed it's latest trick
Better than games before, WOW!
The Nintendo 64!!
And when Sony tried to take the field
The N64 refused to yield!
And a new chapter was revealed
About...this Mario guy

We started singing

Oh my, my this here Mario guy
Super-powered Fire Flowers make his enemies fry
And the boys and girls take just one look and they sigh
Saying this will be the game that I buy,
This will be the game that I buy

Oh, and here they are all in one place
The Mario games take up lots of space
That's when the new age would begin
So watch out, Sega Dreamcast,
P-S-2,
X-Box, your days will soon be through because
Nintendo's gonna bring you to your end

Oh, and as we watched back in '01
Our hands were waiting for the fun
Nothing that they could sell
Could break the Gamecube's spell

And as new games played into the night
With all new graphics, what a sight!
Guess who I saw laughing with delight
Oh yes...that Mario guy

We were singing

My, my this here Mario guy
Super-powered Fire Flowers make his enemies fry
And the boys and girls take just one look and they sigh
Saying this will be the game that I buy,
This will be the game that I buy

I found some Sega games I used
And I tried to trade for something new...
But they just laughed and turned away
I went down to the gaming store
Where I'd seen Sonic years before
But the man there said Nintendo's where he plays

And in the stores, the Sega's creamed
The system died, in the end, it seemed
The power was unspoken
The winning streak, unbroken

And the one man I admire most
The man who's earned the right to boast
He's number 1 from coast to coast
Oh yeah...that Mario guy

And we're all singing

Oh my, my this here Mario guy
Super-powered Fire Flowers make his enemies fry
And the boys and girls take just one look and they sigh
Saying this will be the game that I buy,
This will be the game that I buy

We'll be singin'

Oh my, my this here Mario guy
Super-powered Fire Flowers make his enemies fry
And the boys and girls take just one look and they sigh
Saying this will be the game that I buy
Luigi: Nobody ever writes songs about ME!!!!

Genius. However! I love Mario games, but I hate the GameCube. I'm an Xbox guy ;-)

I didn't think I could laugh at another 'American Pie' parody but this one proved me wrong. Very funny. (Great history of videogames, also)

Gotta give it up for being able to make yet another "American Pie" parody interesting

Just thought I'd also pass this on: My daughter has been wanting to write a parody like her dad for a while now, but hasn't been able to come up with an idea for it. After singing this one through, she went into her room and came out later with "Buy, Buy, Buy" - a parody of the Nsync song all about her wanting to buy new games! It's posted (or will be) under "L'il Pooch". Thanks for the inspiration!!!

it was mainly seeing this song and its success which inspired me to write ¨mario 2¨ which is up today and being treated very unfairly by voters compared to the comments its getting

Voice In Head: "Kill! Kill! Kill!" Little Boy: "Satan, is that you?" Voice In Head: "No, itsa me, Mario!!!" This is the first parody of American Pie I have heard which didn't make me say "This song :::insert adjective/verb here:::, I'm gonna go get a snack." And you're hearing this from a fifteen year old who can't sit still for more than a few minutes. Go Writer, Go.

Nice. hope you don't mind if me and a few friends use it as our theme song. Is there a copyright law for that? Oh well! Nice song! Even mom likes it...(and believe me, that's really saying something!)

Great job! You blew us away! We're big fans of Nintendo, even if our classmates still tease us for owning N64s.... Oh yeah! Just one minor suggestion.. Maybe you could write on about Yoshi? You would definitely do the green dinosaur real justice! ( Unless you already wrote one.. I'll check ) Keep it up

Even though I came up with the idea of "My, my this here Mario Guy" 1st, this song had a different concept than mine, good job.
