List of Super Mario World songs

Jump to: navigation, search

The following is a list of the various songs featured in the Super Mario World animated series. In all, there are fourteen songs, one for each episode plus the theme song. Each episode's song corresponds to the theme of the episode. For example: In "The Yoshi Shuffle", the theme for the episode is football so the song that corresponds to that episode is Fight to the Finish.

Theme Song[edit]

This is the opening theme to the animated series. The lyrics and melody of the theme song were written by Mark Mothersbaugh. An instrumental version is used at the end of all of the episodes. However, early German broadcasts used the intro with the German Plumber Rap from "The Super Mario Bros. Super Show" instead.

Super Mario. Super Mario. Super Mario WORLD!

(In the background, repeated: Super Mario.)
Super Mario World!
It's a blast from the past.
In Super Mario World
you've got to move fast.

Mario and Luigi
are doing what they can.
Yoshi and the Princess
are givin' them a hand.

Super Mario WORLD!

(In the background, repeated: Super Mario.)
Super Mario World!
It's a blast from the past.
In Super Mario World
it's a blast!
Super Mario WORLD!

Kootie Pie Rap[edit]

In the episode "Fire Sale", Kootie Pie Rap is the song sung by Mama Fireplant after she is captured and imprisoned by Kootie Pie Koopa in the Koopaling's Ice Palace.

Motor City, Here We Come[edit]

In the episode "The Wheel Thing", while Mario, Luigi, Yoshi and the cavepeople try to stop Bowser and Kooky Von Koopa from rampaging through Dome City in the Mega Mechanasaur, the 50's style song Motor City, Here We Come is played. (Note: This is the only song from the Super Mario World TV series to have its instrumental used to dub over cover songs in re-airings of The Super Mario Bros. Super Show!, all others are from The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3.)[citation needed]

Everything is ready, put the pedal down

Motor City, here we come
I've got the fastest set of wheels in town
Motor City, here we come
The road is busy every night and day
Motor City, here we come
Nobody could stop this awesome machine
Motor City, here we come
Yeah

Rev it up
Just a little bit faster
Crank it up
Just a little bit faster
Go, go, going

Motor City, Yeah
Motor City, here we come
Motor City
Motor City, here we come
Motor City

Rev it up

The Greatest Show in the World[edit]

In "Send in the Clown", while Mario is looking for an item to aid his friends, who have been captured by Bowser and Big Mouth Koopa, he rushes through Neon Castle. While he is being chased by dozens of enemies, The Greatest Show In The World plays in the background.

When they raise the tents

And light the lights, bingo
We will see the most amazing sights, yes
First the maestro will strike up the band, wow
You're the finest circus in the land
Spotlights shine
And people start to cheer
Fireworks light up the sky
We're gonna see the greatest show in the world
At the circus tonight

(entire song repeated twice)

There's a Wizard, Here Tonight[edit]

In "Ghosts 'R' Us", Yoshi, while searching Wizenheimer's Haunted House for the captured Mario, Luigi, Princess Toadstool and Oogtar, is chased by a gang of ghosts consisting of a Big Boo and several Boos while the song Theres A Wizard, Here Tonight plays. This is a cover and parody of Thriller.

You walk on tiptoe

Afraid of every sound
You can't believe it
This house is filled with fear
Creepy shadows
Follow you somehow
Look, there's a monster
He's after you right now
There's a wizard, here tonight
Don't walk into the darkness or some evil thing might grab us
There's a wizard, here tonight
Let's hope we only get out of haunted house of fright

Wizard

Rockin' With the Sleighbells[edit]

While rushing through Neon Castle searching for Oogtar in "The Night Before Cave Christmas", Mario and Yoshi evade dozens of enemies, all the while Rockin' With The Sleighbells plays in the background. It is sung to the tune of the song "Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree".

Rockin' with the sleighbells

The whole night through
Nothing could be nicer, than being with you
Everyone is dancing
The musics so fine
Been rockin' with the sleighbells
Havin' a swinging time
(above lyrics repeated)
Rockin' with the sleighbells
All night and day
Go look out the window
It's Santa's sleigh
Jingle bells are ringing
We're feelin' okay
Been rockin' with the sleighbells

Happy holidays! Yeah!

Keep on Running[edit]

In "King Scoopa Koopa", after the cave-people, who have been mutated into Chickadactyls, attack them, Mario and Princess Toadstool try to escape them using the Star Path, all the while Keep On Running is sung.

When darkness rains down from the sky

And you don't know where to turn
Just say the word
And leave tonight
As we watch our bridges burn
Just follow me (keep running)
Don't be afraid (keep running)
No matter what we face
Just take my hand and hold on tight (keep running, keep on running)
Together we'll finish the race
Right now, it's do or die (keep running, keep on keep on running)
(above lyrics repeated)
So don't look back
Now it's time to run (keep running, keep on keep on running)
Right now, we're under a gun (keep running, keep on running)
So don't look back

Now it's time to run!

Time to Get Wild[edit]

In "Born to Ride", Mario, Luigi, Princess Toadstool and Yoshi, after narrowly escaping a gang called the DinoRiders, find themselves caught-up in a motorcycle race against the gang while Time To Get Wild plays.

Time to get moving

Moving on out now
Time to kick it out now
Rev up the engine
Vroom, vroom
Leave it all behind us
We do anything we want to
Tell us where you wanna be
Time to get wild
Yeah!
Time to get wild
Groovin' to a clifftop
Ride out to the edge now
Rev up the engine
Lookin' now to fly down
Time to get wild!
Get wild!
Time to get wild!
Get wild!
Time to get wild!
Get wild!

Time to get wild

Listen to the Grapevine[edit]

In "Party Line", while the cave-people are distracted by their new phones, Mario is forced to defend Dome City from the T-Rex, while Listen to the Grapevine plays. The song's title and chorus are based on that of the 60s song "I Heard It Through the Grapevine".

If you really want to know everything I stole

Why not put a shell up next to your ear
You can get latest word
On anything you might've heard
The vine'll tell you what you need to hear
You don't need to scream or shout
You know what it's all about
Yeah!
Listen to the grapevine
Everybody
Listen to the grapevine
Can you do it?
If you really want to know everything I stole
Why not put a shell up next to your ear
You can get latest word
On anything you might've heard
The vine'll tell you what you need to hear
You don't need to scream or shout
Hey!
You know what it's all about
Yeah!
Listen to the grapevine
Everybody
Listen to the grapevine
Can you do it?
Everbody's feelin' fine
Honey, honey
Everybody's on the line
Just listen to the grapevine

Listen!

Cheatsy's Life[edit]

In "Gopher Bash", after successfully stealing all the food of the cave-people, Cheatsy Koopa begins to sing a self-praising song called Cheatsy's Life, with his Monty Mole minions singing backup.

CHEATSY KOOPA: Oh, Poppa Koopa sees a chance for some real mischief
Oh, but there’s the blackest of evil to be done
He smiles and then says, "Cheatsy, just go do it"
And Cheatsy’s life becomes a lot of fun!


MONTY MOLES: Oh, when there's underhanded evil to be done

To be done!
Then Cheatsy’s life becomes a lot of fun!
Lotsa' fun!


CHEATSY KOOPA: If you want to cheat a family of their mortgage

If you want to put some grandma on the street (Put her down)
Then I’m the one that has a plan, I know how to do it
Cheatsy's got the scheme's that can’t be beat!


MONTY MOLES: Oh, when there’s underhanded evil to be done

To be done!
Then Cheatsy’s life becomes a happy one!
Happy one!


CHEATSY KOOPA: If the idea is to take someone’s life savings

If you want to steal a little boy’s last dime
Then I’m the one that you should all be calling
I'll do the job no matter what the crime!


MARIO, LUIGI AND YOSHI: If there’s something really rotten to be done

To be done!
Then Cheatsy’s life becomes a worthwhile one!
Worthwhile one!
THAT’S CHEAT-SY’S LIFE!

Ready to Go[edit]

In "Rock TV", after being forced into a wrestling ring by Bowser, Mario and Luigi are forced to battle the monstrous Tyrannosaurus Twins, while Ready to Go plays.

Gonna jump higher

Than ever before
Reach for the top of the sky
Reach
Gonna cheer for the winner
Yell for more
Oh, yeah more
Right now it's do or die
Ready
Ready ready
Ready to go
Ready for a TKO
Ready
Ready, ready
Ready to go
Gonna wag the tail
Of the dinosaur
A, ha, ha, big ol' tail
Gonna wag the tail
Of the dinosaur

A, ha, ha!

Fight to the Finish[edit]

In "The Yoshi Shuffle", while playing a football game against Bully, Cheatsy and Big Mouth Koopa, Mario and Yoshi struggle to attain victory while the song Fight to the Finish is sung in the background.

Come on raise up all our spirits

Shout the home team cheer
Let's place our voices high, high, high
So everyone will hear
Yeah
And until the game is over
Exactly
This is what we'll do
This is what we're gonna do
So fight, fight, fight
Fight to the finish
We're all for you
So fight, fight, fight
Fight to the finish
We're all for you
So fight, fight, fight
Fight to the finish
We're all for you
So fight, fight, fight
Fight to the finish

We're all for you!

Rockin' the High School[edit]

In the episode "A Little Learning", after Hip and Hop Koopa's volcano project in the science fair for school goes out of control, the lava flow from it threatens to destroy Dome City. To make matters worse, a giant Piranha Plant has begun to go on a rampage to the beat of Rockin' the High School. (The title of this song is misquoted because of the elementary school scene.)

The temperature's risin'

It's gettin' hot
Rock, rock
Rockin' the high school
Boys are comin'
Ready or not
Rock, rock
Rockin' the high school
One big tree's gonna steal the show
Goin' down easy
Gonna swallow you whole
We can't stop it now
It's gonna explode
Gonna explode
We're rockin' the high school
Yeah
Rock, rock
Rockin' the high school
Rockin' the high school
Rock, rock
Rockin' the high school
One big tree's gonna steal the show
Goin' down easy
Gonna swallow you whole
We can't stop it now
Cuz it's gonna explode
That's right, it's gonna explode
Rock, rock
Rockin' the high school

Yeah!

Looking for You[edit]

In "Mama Luigi", as Mario and Luigi try to illuminate Neon Castle's dark basement, the recently hatched Yoshi wonders away into the bowels of the castle, with a frantic Mario and Luigi chasing after him as Looking for You plays.

First you're here, and then you're not

You never seem to stay in one spot
I'm looking, looking
Looking for you
I try to keep up as best I can
I wanna be there if you need a hand
I'm looking, looking
Looking for you
I'm just one step behind
Oh, why are you so hard to find?
I've looked high and I've looked low
You know that everywhere I go
I'm looking, looking
Looking for you
Looking, looking
Looking for you
Looking, looking

Looking for you
