Overview

White Knuckle Scorin' is another compilation released by Nintendo, with actual bands contributing their own songs, I think. Not sure though; I don't have much info about this CD. The only Mario-related track is an excellent song by Jellyfish, with clever lyrics taking us inside the scheming, evil mind of Bowser Koopa. Also, inside the CD is a short Mario comic that is a sort of prologue to Jellyfish's song, which is just icing on the cake if you purchase this CD just for that song.

Lyrics

Ignorance is Bliss by Jellyfish

Wake up!
Miss Toadstool, it is I, your one and only king: Bowser Koopa.
I'm a turtle as you see
A little slow and a little green
But on the whole I'd say, super-duper.

Princess Toadstool, I know you're frightened
If you knew just why you're here, your fear would just be heightened.

So let's just say: Ignorance is bliss.

Oh, while I hate to be a bummer
I've brought you here to bring me plumbers, you know those brothers
Oh what's their names?
Oh yes, Mario and Luigi, just the sound of them makes me queasy,
I'd love to take that monkey wrench, I'd play my own game...

Princess Toadstool, you're so misguided
I've never been fond of bookworms but then again this one does make good Mario bait
Oh I can't wait.
Ignorance is bliss.

With my magic book I'll shower
Those clumsy lizards with my power
Until Dinosaur Land is nothing but fossil fuel.
My only problem with these spells
Is that I know not what they tell
So every hex leaves me perplexed and all I want are those plumbing fools.

Princess Toadstool, you're not so clever, all your words are alphabet soup,
A picture tells it better.
I'll say it again: Ignorance is bliss.

Haven't you heard? A picture is worth a thousand words.

You call yourself a Princess, but you're a braniac in a dress.
I can't believe you waste time with these books!
You remind me of my kid sister
She read so much she got a blister
A big one, I mean BIG, on her brain - what a shnook!

I'd like to get my hands...

Just one time with a monkey wrench...

I'll fix their plumbing!

Princess Toadstool, I know you're frightened (so misguided)
If you knew just why you're here, your fear would just be heightened.

Princess Toadstool, you're not so clever (say it better)
All your words are alphabet soup, a picture tells it better.

For the last time:

On second thought I think I've made my point.
