Do the Mario

Do the Mario was the outro / ending theme of the Super Mario Bros Super Show but what makes it really memorable is at the end of the episode as the credits rolled professional wrestler Lou-Albano who portrayed Mario in the live aciton segments danced goofily to the mario theme while singing and telling us to “do the Mario”. I don’t know exactly what it is but there’s something special about it as this wasn’t a show I ever watched as a kid and only got to see it for the first time in my late teens when the DVDs of the show came out and yet they felt nostalgic and magical in a way that I shouldn’t have felt for something I never watched. So let’s go ahead and take some time to “Do the Mario”. Watch the video here and you can find the lyrics below.

Do the Mario!
Swing your arms from side to side
Come on, it’s time to go!
Do the Mario!
Take one step, and then again.
Let’s do the Mario, all together now!
You’ve got it!
It’s the Mario!
Do the Mario!
Swing your arms from side to side
Come on, it’s time to go!
Do the Mario!
Take one step, and then again.
Let’s do the Mario, all together now!
Come on now, just like that!
