“Birdo's a bit past her prime, but she's still got the moves!”
Shy Guy, Paper Mario: Color Splash

"Soul Rumblings" is a song by Birdo that plays in Paper Mario: Sticker Star and Paper Mario: Color Splash. While it has lyrics, they are not sung aloud and instead appear in captions.

History[edit]

Paper Mario: Sticker Star[edit]

Birdo singing to Mario at Snow Rise

Named "Swinging Swing" in the Sticker Museum's sound room, the song plays at Snow Rise in Paper Mario: Sticker Star, where Birdo sings it to Mario and gives him the Goat Thing.

"Swinging Swing" can be played on the record player in the Enigmansion. The steward enjoys it and says that it "[m]akes a fellow feel right at home," while the forebear is confused and "doesn't get it."

Lyrics to "Swinging Swing" can be found in the trash at Shy Guy Jungle, slightly differing from the ones heard at Snow Rise.

Paper Mario: Color Splash[edit]

In Paper Mario: Color Splash, the song plays in two parts: the prelude is called "Careless in Love", while "Soul Rumblings" plays after Birdo appears. Both parts are performed at Plum Park, in front of Mario and an audience of Shy Guys. This rendition's lyrics reference Yume Kōjō: Doki Doki Panic and the Flutter Jump move.

"Soul Rumblings" plays again when the Balloons Thing is used in battle, and in the credits theme, "Prisma Splash!"

Paper Mario: The Origami King[edit]

Although the song does not appear in Paper Mario: The Origami King, its lyrics are referenced at the end of the second act in the Big Sho' Theater when Birdo kisses Mario and says, "Tough luck, Overalls! Despite my prior warnings, here you are... with egg on your face."

Al corazón de ella y al corazón de él...

Átate un listón rosa y baila por doquier.

The magic of love will make them one...

Al corazón de ella y al corazón de él...
La magia del amor los hará uno...
Átate un listón rosa y baila por doquier.
Pero trata de no tropezar con el cubo.

To her heart and to his heart...
The magic of love will make them one...
Tie a pink ribbon and dance everywhere, anywhere.
But try not to trip over the bucket.
