But did you know that there is an official vocal version of the Super Mario Bros theme song? This vocal version of the Super Mario Bros theme song dates back to 1985. The song wasn’t originally released with lyrics, but in 1985 a Japenese radio station was running a competition where fans could submit lyrics for the Super Mario Bros theme song. The winner’s choice was then officially endorsed by Nintendo and the song, with lyrics, were recorded in Japanese and released on vinyl.

Even if you don’t understand Japanese, you can hear it’s quite a goofy and silly tune. The lyrics for the iconic theme song was later translated into English, which was performed live in 2003 by the Mario & Zelda Big Band. But only the original Japanese version was officially endorsed by Nintendo.

These are the full lyrics of the English version of the Super Mario Bros theme song, which was performed by the Mario & Zelda Big Band.

“Today, full of energy, Mario is still running, running Go save Princess Peach! Go! Today, full of energy, Mario runs Today, full of energy, jumping! Today, full of energy, searching for coins Today, keep going, Mario!

Get a mushroom – it’s Super Mario! Get a flower – it’s Fire Mario!

Goomba! Troopa! Buzzy Beetle! Beat them all! Mario is always full of energy and strong!

[Spoken] The only one who can reverse the spell that has captured the Mushroom People is Princess Peach. But Princess Peach is hidden underground, in a far-off castle. Ah, the days of peace … if we could once more return to those days … to save Princess Peach and bring peace back to the Mushroom Kingdom, that is why Mario is on his journey today.

Today, full of energy, Mario is still running, running Go and beat the Koopa tribe, go! Today, full of energy, Mario runs Today, full of energy, jumping! Today, full of energy, searching for coins Today, keep going, Mario!

Get a star – become invincible! Quickly, go save Princess Peach!

Lakitu! Blooper! Cheep Cheep! Beat them all! Mario is always full of energy and strong!

Today, full of energy, Mario is still running, running He’s made it to the castle and gets fireworks! Lightly sidestepping the Hammer Bros. Show the last of your power, Mario! It’s been a long journey but it’s nearly at an end You’ve done it, you’ve done it! You’ve defeated Bowser!

Princess Peach says, ‘Thank you’ Mario’s got a great big heart!

Mario’s adventure is over for now, but Mario’s dream lives forever…”
