The Lyrics

This song is about the "floating Mario head" Internet meme. You will probably find it on YouTube if you search for "Mario head". The source of this meme is "Mario Teaches Typing", a 1992 game intended to teach kids to type, and it's a disembodied Mario head that spouts phrases like "Can I sing a song for you?", sings, and says "WHEEE!"
I'm just a Mario and everywhere I go
People know the game they're playing
But I'm just a head yet I talk instead
Ooh, of lazing
YouTube video
From 20 years ago
That is, when the game came out
Talk in non sequitur
I blurt out random words
Right, 'cause I'm just a head
(2x)

Chorus:
'Cause I ain't got no body
No body stuck to me, no body
No body stuck to me
I sing like Dean Martin
Or so I think, or so I think
When I say "pizza pie"
It turns into a meme
From a game so bad

Weird and random all of the time
Can I sing a song, sing a, sing a song
(WHEE!)

(Chorus)

(Solo, with extended WHEE! where the thing that ends with "zee ga lee bop" is)

(Chorus)

Teaching kids to type
Was what I was supposed to do
Can I sing a song, badly, badly sing a song
No one types with me, they just laugh
Somehow live, got no body
No, no body, no body
No body, no body, nothing, nothing
Mario, floating, floating
Getting serious, unpredictable
Over there, no body, got nothing, no body
No body, no body, no body,
No body, no body stuck to me

Amanda - Hummala-skibbida-dibida- hoobilah-hummala-skibbida-dibida-bop! Check out the Louie Prima version when you can. Roth covered it note for note and nonsense syllable for nonsense syllable. ;D
