Jump Up, Super Star![1] is the theme song of Super Mario Odyssey. It is sung by Pauline[2] and was used in gameplay footage of Super Mario Odyssey during E3 2017.

The song is big-band jazz style, and the most noticeable feature is its lyrics, something very rarely heard in songs from the Super Mario series. The song has Pauline detailing an adventure across the worlds of Super Mario Odyssey, referring to herself as Mario's "1-Up Girl". A Japanese version of the song has its own lyrics, unique to the international version.

This song was performed by The Super Mario Players and was sung by Kate Higgins (also known as Kate Davis[3]). This song was composed by Naoto Kubo.[4] The full version will be released on October 20, 2017 on the iTunes Store, while the short version is downloadable for free until January 2018.[5]

Lyrics[edit]

Here we go, off the rails
Don't you know it's time to raise our sails?
It's freedom like you never knew

Don't need bags, or a pass,
Say the word, I'll be there in a flash
You could say my hat is off to you

Oh, we can zoom all the way to the moon,
From this great wide wacky world,
Jump with me, grab coins with me, oh yeah!

It's time to jump up in the air, (Jump up in the air),
Jump up, don't be scared, (Jump up, don't be scared),
Jump up and your cares will soar away, (oohoohooh),
And if the dark clouds start to swirl, (Dark clouds start to swirl),
Don't fear, don't shed a tear, 'cause
I'll be your 1-Up Girl

So let's all jump up super high, (Jump up super high),
High up in the sky, (High up in the sky),
There's no power-up like dancing,
You know that you're my Super Star, (You're my Super Star)
No one else can take me this far
I'm flipping the switch,
Get ready for this, oh
Let's do the Odyssey!

Odyssey, ya see (x7),
Odyssey, Odyssey!

Spin the wheel, take a chance
Every journey starts a new romance
A new world's calling out to you

Take a turn, off the path
Find a new addition to the cast,
You know that any captain needs a crew

Take it in stride as you move, side to side,
They're just different points of view
Jump with me, grab coins with me, Oh yeah!

Come on and jump up in the air, (Jump up in the air),
Jump without a care, (Jump without a care),
Jump up 'cause you know that I'll be there
And if you find you're short on joy, (Find you're short on joy),
Don't fret, just don't forget that
You're still our 1-Up Boy

So go on, straighten up your cap, (Straighten up your cap),
Let your toes begin to tap, (Toes begin to tap),
This rhythm is a power 'shroom (oohoohooh)
Don't forget you're the Super Star (You're the Super Star)
No one else can make it this far
Put a comb through that stache,
Now you've got panache, oh
Let's do the Odyssey!

It's time to jump up in the air, (Jump up in the air),
Jump up, don't be scared, (Jump up don't be scared),
Just jump up and your cares will soar away, (oohoohooh),
And if the dark clouds start to swirl, (Dark clouds start to swirl),
Don't fear, don't shed a tear, 'cause
I'll be your 1-Up Girl

Now listen all you boys and girls, (All you boys and girls),
All around the world, (All around the world),
Don't be afraid to get up and move
You know that we're all Super Stars, (We're all Super Stars)
We're the ones who've made it this far
Put a smile on that face,
There's no time to waste, oh
Let's do the Odyssey!

Trivia[edit]

  • This song is the first main theme of a Super Mario series game to feature lyrics.
  • The theme of 25m from Donkey Kong can be heard during the part where Pauline repeats the lyrics "Odyssey, ya see". In addition, the sound effect played when Mario jumps over a barrel in the game can be heard at the end of the aforementioned riff.[6]
