Penny's Song or Penny's Theme[1] is a song that plays during Penny's Mix in WarioWare: Get It Together! The song can also be heard in Penny's gallery after unlocking at least one of her pieces of artwork (making her the only character in the game whose gallery has unique music). The song is heavily associated with Penny, and is the only song in the game with lyrics. If the player fails at a microgame in Penny's Mix, the music distorts while alternate lyrics corresponding to the failure replace the original lyrics, such as "With missteps on the way" as opposed to "With inventions she made", similarly to Falling Off Tomorrow Hill in WarioWare: Smooth Moves. Due to this, the length of the timer in Penny's Mix depends on where the song is before the success or failure of a microgame, and the timer counts down to the beat of the music. Unlike other stages, the timer stays in beat with the song during the stage instead of ending more quickly after a microgame is won or lost (a long microgame is played every three rounds).

The instrumental for Penny's Song features a motif from Dr. Crygor's theme, similarly to the intro music for Penny's stage in WarioWare: Smooth Moves.

If Penny's Mix is replayed in Story mode, the song loops every 15 rounds. Portions of the song are skipped after round 75 due to there being no further "Speed Up!"s beyond that point.

Arrangements of Penny's Song can also be heard in the introductory cutscene for Penny's Mix and Penny's portion of the staff credits.

There are two different language versions of the song featured in the game: the English version, performed by Cristina Lucía Jáuregui,[2] and the Japanese version, performed by Hina Ito. On November 15, 2021, a Spanish version of Penny's Song was released on Nintendo's YouTube channel alongside the English version, making it the second WarioWare song with lyrics to have a version in a language other than English or Japanese (after 18 x 13). However, the Spanish version of the song is not featured in-game, with the Spanish translation of the game using the English version of the song instead.

Lyrics[edit]

English[edit]

The lyrics are taken from the official video's closed captions.

She's got her hair tied up in braids,
and glasses perched up on her face.
She is a small girl, takin' on a big world,
with inventions she made!
And though her plans may go awry,
she's gonna get back up and try.
Gonna be a shining star, she's going far, Penny!

She fills her days with pop songs and experiments,
poring over sheet music and blueprints.
Penny longs to become the best singer-scientist
in the whole universe.

Trial and error, fused with ingenuity,
Penny's a bundle of joyous positivity.
Tinker, thinker, dreamer to the core.
Singer, mechanic, she's all that and more.
Here comes the spotlight,
it's what you've been reaching for!

Not every song she sings will be in tune.
But even when she aims for the high note,
she will stand up proud, and sing out loud for you,
'cause it's true...
That's Penny through-and-through.

Her workshop is where she goes to
fix up contraptions, old and new.
This one's her favorite, here, you can try it!
She made it for you!
Whenever something falls apart,
it's nothing Penny can't jump-start.
Everything she fixes is a gift straight from the heart.

And every plan that goes all wrong,
becomes a line in her life's song.
She will try harder. She will sing louder.
Now let's all sing along!
All our mistakes from yesterday,
become new smiles today!

She's got her hair tied up in braids,
and glasses perched up on her face.
She is a small girl, takin' on a big world,
with inventions she made!
And though her plans may go awry,
she's gonna get back up and try.
Gonna be a shining star, she's going far, Penny!

She is a small girl, takin' on a big world,
with missteps on the way!
And though her plans may go awry,
she's gonna get back up and try.
Gonna be a shining star, she's going far, Penny?!

She fills her days with pop songs and experiments,
poring over sheet music and blueprints...
Penny longs to become the best singer-scientist
but oh, what a mess...

Trial and error, fused with ingenuity,
Penny's a bundle of joyous positivity.
Tinker, thinker, dreamer to the core.
Pick yourself up when you fall on the floor.
Here comes the spotlight,
it's what you've been reaching for!

Not every song she sings will be in tune.
But even when she lands on a flat note,
she will stand up proud, and sing out loud for you,
'cause it's true...
Even good songs can fall through.

Her workshop is where she goes to
fix up contraptions, old and new.
This one's her favorite, here, you can try it!
It's missing a screw!
Whenever something falls apart,
it's nothing Penny can't jump-start.
Everything she fixes is a gift straight from the heart...

And every plan that goes all wrong,
becomes a line in her life's song.
She will try harder. She will sing louder.
Now let's all sing along!
All our mistakes from yesterday,
may hurt, but it's okay!

She's got her hair tied up in braids,
and glasses perched up on her face.
She is a small girl, takin' on a big world,
with missteps on the way!
And though her plans may go awry,
she's gonna get back up and try.
Gonna be a shining star, she's going far, Penny?!

Sporting braids and round glasses
A small, bright inventor
Yesterday’s failures become today’s smiles
Everyone’s idol, shining Penny

Passionate about songs and experiments, she is a girl who loves excitement
Her dream is to be the number one singing idol-scientist in the universe
Positive train of thought, curiosity, trial-and-error
Steadily dreams become reality, overcome trials and errors, GO!
Look! Every day is getting brighter

When she's in a bit of a slump she gets disheartened, but
When all is said and done, we still love her

Strange ideas, bizarre gadgetry
Try out a prototype model made for her fans
Whatever the problem, Penny solves it
With her love embedded in a heart mark

Proceeding as planned or back to square one
None of that bothers her
Even her ongoing troubles are expected tomorrow

Sporting braids and round glasses
A small, bright inventor
Yesterday’s failures become today’s smiles
Everyone’s idol, loveable Penny

Spanish lyrics Translation

Es una chica intelectual
con un talento sin igual
Deslumbra al mundo con un par de lentes
y sus invenciones
Cuando las cosas salen mal
solo lo vuelve a intentar
No hay quien detenga a la única y estelar ¡Penny!

Vive de experimentos y canciones pop
Sencillos y ensayos son su perdición
Penny sueña con ser la mejor
y prepara su voz para la audición

Prueba y error con creatividad,
nunca pierde una oportunidad
(Racional, musical, soñadora hasta el final)
(Cantante, mecánica, es eso y más)
Llegó tu momento, ¡demuestra tu talento!

No todas sus canciones suenan bien
Pero aunque falle lucha hasta el final
Seguirá cantando fuerte para ti
Es así... Penny no se rendirá

En su taller la encontrarás
creando cosas mágicas
Mira este invento, tan especial,
¡lo hizo para ti!
Con decisión y precisión,
aspira a la perfección
Todo lo que hace viene de su corazón

Si algo no va de acuerdo al plan,
lo toma como práctica
Sigue intentando hasta mejorarlo
Y esta es su lección:
Que los errores del ayer son las sonrisas del saber

Es una chica intelectual
con un talento sin igual
Deslumbra al mundo con un par de lentes
y sus invenciones
Cuando las cosas salen mal,
solo lo vuelve a intentar
No hay quien detenga a la única y estelar ¡Penny!

She's an intellectual girl
With an unparalleled talent
She dazzles the world with a pair of glasses
And her inventions
When things go wrong
She just tries again
No one can stop the unique and stellar Penny!

She lives on experiments and pop songs
Singles and rehearsals are her downfall
Penny dreams of being the best
And prepares her voice for the audition

Trial and error with creativity,
She never wastes an opportunity
(Rational, musical, dreamer to the end)
(Singer, mechanic, she's that and more)
Your time has come, show your talent!

Not all of her songs sound good
But even if she fails, she fights to the end
She will keep singing out loud for you
That's right, Penny won't give up

You will find her in her workshop
Creating magical things
Look at this very special invention,
She made it for you!
With determination and precision,
She aspires to perfection
Everything that she does comes from her heart

If something doesn't go according to plan
She sees it as practice
She keeps trying until she improves it
And this is her lesson:
That yesterday's mistakes are knowledge's smiles

She is an intellectual girl
With an unparalleled talent
She dazzles the world with a pair of glasses
And her inventions
When things go wrong
She just tries again
No one can stop the unique and stellar Penny!
