I was jumping on shells
I was falling down holes
there was a 3D open world out there
but I was stuck in side-scroll

I could’ve been winning at checkers
but I was losing at chess
until I solved the biggest puzzle
and I unlocked the treasure chest
and now
I’m winning, I’m winning
I am playing the right game finally
I’m winning, I’m winning
I am using the right name finally

I’m a player, not an obstacle
I’m redefining possible
I have a new victory condition
there are many more than two
ways to win


left right left right b a and start
listen to me and love with your heart
pick up the piece and roll the dice
you can help a person have a better life
and maybe it’s new, maybe it’s hard, can’t you try to care?
cause players like me and all my friends have always been there!

(chorus x 2)
