    You've probably heard the Super Mario Bros. theme song (or Overworld theme) plenty of times before, but did you know it had lyrics? They aren't of an official origin, but they've become semi-official. Let me explain.
    Some time after the game's 1985 debut, a Japanese radio station asked fans to submit their vision of what the song's lyrics would be like. Nintendo heard these submissions and liked one of them so much that they've recorded the song officially and released it on vinyl.
    You can listen to the full song in Japanese below or expand the spoiler box to read the lyrics in English.


    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!

    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 ...

    It's hard to not think of "SWING. YOUR. ARMS. From siDE TO SIde! COME ON! It's TIME to go! DO THE MARIO!" whenever one says "official lyrics to the Super Mario Bros. theme"
