Ignorance Is Bliss - Lyrics

Wake me 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
But if you knew just why you're here
Your fear would just be heightened
So let's just say, "Ignorance is bliss"

Oh, well, I hate to be a bummer
I 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 queezy
I'd like 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, I can't wait, Ignorance is bliss

With my magic books 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
But a picture tells it better
I'll say it again, "Ignorance is bliss"

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

You call yourself a princess
But you're a brainiac 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 schnook

I'd like to get my hands
Just one time with a monkey wrench
I'd 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, Your not so clever
(Picture says 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
