It's a me a Mario, have you got a problem bro?
Doctor R is coming, well tough you freaking ho.
I've got a princess to save, a turtle to slay,
So take your blue ass and get out of my way.
You're an animal, I'm a person, so shut the hell up,
With your raps about your mother cos I shagged her up the butt.
Have you played on my kart game and unlocked all the cups?
Exactly, you haven't, you're a useless little runt!
The pizza you'll be getting is my fist in your face,
All your games suck and all the kid's money goes to waste.
I don't even ride on Yoshi cos that dude has a life,
Unlike Olympic running wanna be's who can't even get a wife.
Even my mustache is bigger than your dick,
I even got into sex business, fifty cents a lick.
You stupid, gay fag, go fuck yourself,
I'll take away all your pride and crush your trophy shelf!
