Lyrics

Super Mario RPG
It is the only one just for me
When I play the game, I get lost in a phase
Then I find out I'm stuck in Geno's Maze

Super Mario RPG
It is the only one just for me
When I play the game, I get lost in a phase
Then I find out I'm stuck in Geno's Maze

Gimme Frog Coins
Gimme Ice Bombs
Gimme Fright Bombs
Gimme Mushrooms
Gimme See Ya
Gimme Star Egg
Gimme Cookies
Gimme Lamb's Lure

I want e-
-v'rything I need
I must play this
More and more and
Need to get those
Damn frog coins to
Pay off all my
Credit card bills

There are many secrets in the game
Many of which drive some peeps insane
Why we try to cheat in a really good game?
Just sounds like crap and it makes you look lame

Exiting the forest is super simple
All you do is follow these patterns
For the rest of your gaming life

Follow Geno's route here,
Follow Geno's route here,
Follow Geno's route here,
I'm a gaming god.

Notes

  • The original BGM was devoid of lyrics. Those listed come from a 2004 arrangement done by Martin Hagwall, aka Märta. Two years later, he made a much more successful remix, known as "The Super Mario RPG Song - Rawest Forest". In the source video labeled "Rap", Taitson is singing a cover of this.
  • The footage used in the Nico video is from a 1927 German postmodern movie called Metropolis, from the scene called "The Dance of the Whore of Babylon."
  • The original song achieved meme status due to one line of the song itself. The words "peeps insane", due to the robotic nature of the voice, can be easily misheard as "VIP-Sensei" or "Mr. VIP" ("Mr." denoting a teacher/instructor here), referring to the default name "VIPPER" on 2ch's News4VIP boards.
