The Lyrics

My tribute to my absolute favourite Super Mario Brothers character...Birdo! No, of course, it's Yoshi. Enjoy!
My fav'rite character in this game
He's a cute badass and Yoshi is his name
Mario's best asset in all these games
No eating strange flowers or mushroom hits
You don't need those, man, cause Yoshi's got thi-i-i-is
Cause he can swallow enemies real quick
And turn them into eggs that Yoshi can then ditch
Take Bowser down, take his troops down tonight (ooh-hoo-ooh)
There's no way you're gonna knock me in a pit to die

Cause I'm on a Yoshi
My dinosaur friend
Or maybe a horse friend?
He's kinda got traits from both, so it's not clear
But who cares, he's special
Very essential

Yoshi's had some games of his own too
All of them diabetes-inducing cute
Some say they're too easy, but I say this:
There's nothing wrong with games aimed at the younger kids
Take Kamek down, throwing eggs round toni-i-i-i-ight
That's ri-i-i-i-ight (ooh-hoo-ooh)
With Yoshis of all colours, like yellow, pink and white

Well, I'm on a Yoshi
He's eating Goombas
And dumb Koopa Troopas
Keep on tongue-whipping until the stage is clear
Bongo instrumental
It's kinda peaceful
While jumping and running around

Greatly love Yoshi (Yoshi)
He's my fav'ri-ite, basic'lly (see)
Whether the main games or (gaming fav'rite)
He's riding on a motorbike

I love playin' Yoshi
When babysitting
Or tennis ball hitting
Or any sport, he never fails to endear
Bias? Preferential?
Adorable, lovable sounds

A huge fan of Yoshi
Got sev'ral plushes
And lots of small figures
I hope I can get the Figuart shipped here
You might be judgemental
And say I'm mental
For buying up plushies in mounds

Don't care, love Yoshi
I'll always defend
My Yoshi obsession
How the Yoshi's Story song brings me to tears
I'm that sentimental
Yoshi's that special
I'm not one to be bawling no-ow

Seriously, look up the end credits music for Yoshi's story. I actually get misty-eyed at it, and that doesn't usually happen.

my favorite Mario character is actually probably Luigi although I can't help but wonder what he's about to do to poor Princess Peach in this video: 5's

Pretty good for a certain audience of which I would say that I'm a part of, however this might not be everybody cup of tea especially the non avid gamer. Still I enjoyed it just like the character of Yoshi

Yeah, my son loves Yoshi, and I am sure he will love this. But this is definitely a fanboy parody for those who are in the know.

Never been a Mario guy really. Anytime I play Mario Kart (the extent of my gaming for those ones), I always pick Luigi...he seems to always get left out. Very nice parody, I love the OS and for some reason the "He's kinda got traits from both, so it's not clear" tickled me the right way haha
