"Show it to a composer somewhere in the world."
First appearance Paper Mario (2000)

The Lyrics (alternatively known as the Beautiful Lyrics)[1] are a special item found in Paper Mario. In the game, the Master Poet of Club 64 tries to write a special song for the Pop Diva to make her sing again. When he finishes writing the Lyrics, he realizes that he needs a composer to set music to the Lyrics. As it turns out, he had heard a rumor that there is a composer around the Mushroom Kingdom, living in Dry Dry Outpost. The Master Poet begs Mario to find the composer who can compose the Lyrics for the Pop Diva. When Mario gives the Lyrics to the composer, the latter is so impressed by them that he immediately sets the music for them, giving Mario the Melody in return.
