I really love the Mario RPG games, especially the Paper Mario franchise, so I wanted to pay tribute to Paper Mario's awesome story with a barbershop quartet arrangement. I took lyrics from the opening of the game and modified them to fit the tune of the Menu theme. I hope all of you enjoy this arrangement as much as we did!


We're going to tell the story of the star spirits,
Way above the clouds they rest.
They rest with the fabled treasure known as the star rod,
With it any wishes can be made

With this great wand the seven star spirits watched our world
Carefully until one day.
King bowser stole the star rod for himself
Whatever shall we do?

He then kidnapped the seven star spirits and gave them
To his loyal henchmen
They spread to hide in their own
Lairs all across the mushroom kingdom
Keeping them captive

Now with King Bowser having the star rod to himself
The star kids can't make wishes come true
Whatever can they do about this predicament


With our story taking a dark turn
He's the only man we can trust
Paper Mario
Paper Mario
Paper Mari Mari-o
(Bum's in bass) Paper Mario
