“Jump Up, Super Star!” by Kate Davis from Super Mario Odyssey

[Verse 1]
Here we go, off the rails
Don’t you know it’s time to raise our sails?
It’s freedom like you never knew
Don’t need bags or a pass
Say the word, I’ll be there in a flash
You could say my hat is off to you

[Pre-Chorus 1]
Oh we can zoom all the way to the moon
From this great wide wacky world
Jump with me, grab coins with me, oh yeah!

[Chorus 1]
It’s time to jump up in the air
Jump up, don’t be scared
Jump up and your cares will soar away
And if the dark clouds start to swirl
Don’t fear, don’t shed a tear ’cause
I’ll be your 1-Up girl
So let’s all jump up super high!
High up in the sky!
There’s no power-up like dancing
You know that you’re my super star
No one else can take me this far
I’m flipping the switch
Get ready for this
Oh, let’s do the Odyssey

[Post-Chorus]
Odyssey, ya see!
Odyssey, ya see!
Odyssey, ya see!
Odyssey, ya see!
Odyssey, ya see!
Odyssey, ya see!
Odyssey, ya see!
Odyssey, Odyssey!

[Verse 2]
Spin the wheel, take a chance
Every journey starts a new romance
A new world’s calling out to you
Take a turn, off the path
Find a new addition to the cast
You know that any captain needs a crew

[Pre-Chorus 2]
Take it in stride as you move, side to side
They’re just different points of view
Jump with me, grab coins with me, oh yeah!

[Chorus 2]
Come on and jump up in the air
Jump without a care
Jump up ’cause you know that I’ll be there
And if you find you’re short on joy
Don’t fret, just don’t forget that
You’re still our 1-Up boy
So go on, straighten up your cap
Let your toes begin to tap
This rhythm is a power ‘shroom
Don’t forget you’re the super star
No one else could make it this far
Put a comb through that ‘stache
Now you’ve got panache
Oh, let’s do the Odyssey!

[Chorus 3]
It’s time to jump up in the air
Jump up, don’t be scared
Jump up and your cares will soar away
And if the dark clouds start to swirl
Don’t fear, don’t shed a tear ’cause
I’ll be your 1-Up girl
Now listen, all you boys and girls
All around the world
Don’t be afraid to get up and move
You know that we’re all superstars
We’re the ones who made it this far
Put a smile on that face
There’s no time to waste, so
Let’s do the Odyssey!

“Oil Spill” by Megan Mullally from Bob’s Burgers

Oh, it’s hot and wet and slick
And it’s making everybody sick

Oil spill
Oil spill
Oil spill

It’s on the fish, it’s on the crabs
Smells so close that you can grab it

Oil spill
Oil spill
Oil spill

“Robot Parade” by They Might Be Giants

In a future time
Children will work together
To build a giant cyborg

Robot parade, robot parade

Wave the flags that the robots made
Robot parade, robot parade
Robots obey what the children say

There’s electric cars
There’s electric trains
Here comes a robot with electric brains

Robot parade, robot parade
Wave the flags that the robots made
Robot parade, robot parade
Robots obey what the children say

“The Gambler” by Kenny Rogers

On a warm summer’s eve
On a train bound for nowhere
I met up with the gambler
We were both too tired to sleep

So we took turns a-starin’
Out the window at the darkness
The boredom overtook us,
And he began to speak

He said, “Son, I’ve made a life
Out of readin’ people’s faces
Knowin’ what the cards were
By the way they held their eyes
So if you don’t mind me sayin’
I can see you’re out of aces
For a taste of your whiskey
I’ll give you some advice”

So I handed him my bottle
And he drank down my last swallow
Then he bummed a cigarette
And asked me for a light
And the night got deathly quiet
And his faced lost all expression
He said, “If you’re gonna play the game, boy
You gotta learn to play it right

You’ve got to know when to hold ’em
Know when to fold ’em
Know when to walk away
And know when to run
You never count your money
When you’re sittin’ at the table
There’ll be time enough for countin’
When the dealin’s done

Every gambler knows
That the secret to survivin’
Is knowin’ what to throw away
And knowin’ what to keep
‘Cause every hand’s a winner
And every hand’s a loser
And the best that you can hope for is to die
in your sleep

And when he finished speakin’
He turned back toward the window
Crushed out his cigarette
And faded off to sleep
And somewhere in the darkness
The gambler he broke even
But in his final words
I found an ace that I could keep

You’ve got to know when to hold ’em
Know when to fold ’em
Know when to walk away
And know when to run
You never count your money
When you’re sittin’ at the table
There’ll be time enough for countin’
When the dealin’s done

You’ve got to know when to hold ’em (when to hold ’em)
Know when to fold ’em (when to fold ’em)
Know when to walk away
And know when to run
You never count your money
When you’re sittin’ at the table
There’ll be time enough for countin’
When the dealin’s done

You’ve got to know when to hold ’em
Know when to fold ’em
Know when to walk away
And know when to run
You never count your money
When you’re sittin’ at the table
There’ll be time enough for countin’
When the dealin’s done

“Grandpa (Tell Me ’bout the Good Old Days)” by the Judds

Grandpa, tell me ’bout the good old days
Sometimes it feels like
This world’s gone crazy
Grandpa, take me back to yesterday
When the line between right and wrong
Didn’t seem so hazy

Did lovers really fall in love to stay
And stand beside each other, come what may?
Was a promise really something people kept
Not just something they would say?
Did families really bow their heads to pray?
Did daddies really never go away?
Oh, Grandpa, tell me ’bout the good old days

Grandpa, everything is changing fast
We call it progress
But I just don’t know
And Grandpa, let’s wander back into the past
And paint me the picture
Of long ago

Did lovers really fall in love to stay
And stand beside each other come what may?
Was a promise really something people kept
Not just something they would say and then forget?
Did families really bow their heads to pray?
Did daddies really never go away?
Oh, Grandpa, tell me ’bout the good old days
Oh, Grandpa, tell me ’bout the good old days
