The Lyrics

Parody of the Mario series, contains 3 parts. First part is the intro. Second part is about graphics. Third part is about history of Mario.
Some pixels of red, some pixels of blue
Make the Mario of today’s tech crew
What a change that he’s gone through
He has irises and gloves, and you can make out his face
Some pixels of red, some pixels of white
Make the classic Fire Flower sprite
Nintendo’s come pretty far
With their Italian Superstar…

Gaming has improved these days
Got more blocks, they got a new engine
Got a new look, Wiimote is shook
And the Wi-Fi is fine.
Not just scrolling side to side.
Screens are now a bit more wide.
Those graphics look so nice after so much time.
You remember those days being shocked by the color scheme?
Nowadays 2D seems more like a faded dream.
Ah, You’re not impressed unless it has an realistic gleam.
Shadows, bright flames
Remember gameplay makes the games

Jumpman was famous as he rescued his dame
By dodging barrels thrown by Donkey Kong.
Then they decided that being a carpenter was simply wrong.
Shigeru made him a plumber
Some people thought that could not be dumber
And also they named Mario after a landlord.
Oh, But now Mario has the #1 score on the board.
Oh (repeated)
Their next arcade game wasn’t worthy of shame
Because Luigi was made player 2.
Then they moved on to Pipes, Mushrooms, Flagpoles, and Podoboos.
Had an adventure in Subcon, showed off Toad’s superhuman brawn
Then defeated Tatanga and all of his strange enemies.
Oh, And following that he entered combat overseas.
Well, the Koopalings struck and the kings out of luck
Until Mario came to assist.
And on Yoshi’s Isle they were equally hostile but Mario had to persist.
Wario conquered at least from what we heard.
So Mario reclenched his fist.
Yeah, they’re on a roll!
(Underground Theme Plays along with Normal Theme)
They moved on to 3D and made the game we know
is just wonderful to replay.
They went in to sports and a few other
sorts of games that gamers still favor today.
A game for Luigi was just too easy.
But why launch the Gamecube that way?
Sunshine with FLUDD was very far from a dud
But was a small slip in the trilogy
Oh, they kept going strong with Yoshi, Donkey Kong, a few RPGs.
Remade a game that was ageless
Super Smash Bros. was all the rage
This was certainly a sturdy time for this super franchise.
Oh, and Galaxy wowed and astounded the masses.
Everyone says that the game really passes
the standards that we have come to adore and admire.

Some pixels of red, ooh some pixels of white
Make the current Super Mushroom sprite
Nintendo’s come very far
With their Italian Superstar…

In case anyone noticed, in the second stanza it should say "a realistic gleam." And also in the third stanza, "Super Smash Bros. was all the rage, This" should all be on one line. It makes the rhythym work very nicely through the rest.
