The Lyrics

Bob-Ombs have but one function in the Super Mario world, explode and take Mario and his friends out. As far as a life purpose goes, that's pretty messed up! And one young Bob-Ombs decides to step up and and say enough is enough!
Verse 1: This is who I am
This is a Bob-Omb life
Chasing some Italian plumber that is high on mushrooms?
Let him run right by me
I'll just let him go
I just never found a reason to explode
Cuz that would mean I'd die
I'm sorry, that's insane
I'm not gonna erupt

Chorus: I don't wanna be told to blow up
Don't that sound a bit strange?
Man, who thought this sh*t up?
I don't wanna be told to blow up
Cuz that sounds so deranged
I just wanna stay one
Can't there be an exchange?
I don't wanna blow up

Verse 2: I like to chill all day
Play charades with Shy Guys
Maybe hop in a go-kart and I could win that first prize
I'm super Zen and I do yoga to stay calm
I'm so explosive, that I've worked to curb my temper
So I stay alive!
So this is for my king...
You can go and screw off!

Chorus: I don't wanna be told to blow up
Cuz that's a silly thing
Are you really that drunk?
I don't wanna be told to blow up
Why am I being strange?
Can't you see that's messed up!?
Will you mind ever change?
Why'd you wanna blow up?

[Instrumental Break]

Bridge: I don't wanna be told to blow up (blow up, blow up...)
I do t wanna be told to blow up (blow up, blow up...)

Chorus: I don't wanna be told to blow up
I'll break free of these chains
Cuz this program's corrupt
I don't wanna be told to blow up
Won't go out with a bang
I'll live long as a dud
I don't wanna be told to blow up
Think of horrible pain
Does that sound like such fun?
I don't wanna be told to blow up
And I'm not gonna change
So you better give up
No, don't care what you say
So you all can shut up
No, this bomb won't go bang
I don't wanna blow up
Find me everywhere! On Facebook, Twitter, Soundcloud, and SoundClick!

Not terrible but it could of used a few more jokes. You relied pretty heavily on the OS lyrics which isn't baf all the time but limits you from furthering this idea too much. Plus I noticed a couple spelling errors but overall not bad just not your best

I gotta agree with Matty on this one. A little too much relying on the OS, but this was a fun idea that could use a little more tweaking to get to the next level.

I remember it bombing that particular if you know what I mean.

(Artistry) Decent idea, but there wasn't much connecting it to the Mario universe, so in the end it sounded like a pissed-off suicide bomber which was...kinda uncomfortable. Pretty good parody, 555 tickets to the Paper Mario universe where a peaceful Bob-Omb village exists (with a Russian aesthetic for some reason), but not one of your best, as has been said.
