The Lyrics

I know, I know, the original is Roberta Flack. . . I respect the original, and enjoy it, but I grew up with this version, and Lauryn Hill's woooah and aaah fit the death sounds of a Smash Bros match better.
Punching my face using Up B
Spinning attack from behind
Killing me swiftly with his sword
Killing me swiftly with his sword
taking my last life from this world
Killing me swiftly, now I'm gone

I heard he played Smash Bros
I heard he was quite good
And so I came to play him
as Falcon for a while
And then it came, his whoop a$$,
Losing left and right

Stomping me down when he's Bowser
(one time)
Making me fly when he's Marth
(Two times)
Killing me with every option
Especially as Ness or Robin
Telling all my lives with his sword
Killing me swiftly, knocks me down

I felt washed up and beaten
embarrassed -I'm a louse
He even won as Pac Man
Made me feel like I'm a clown
With Mega Man he finished,
winning as everyone

Kicking my butt with his fingers
(each time)
Countering every move
(each time)
I guess this will be my swan song
Killing me swiftly with his sword
knocking me out of this world
Killing me swiftly with his sword

Pikachu take it to the bridge. . .
(Dramatic death sounds from every character)

Lemme guess he’s playing as Link or perhaps one of the Xenoblade characters. I love Smash Bros! Wish this song was longer so you could fit in things like Master Hand
