lyrics

You know the Mushroom Kingdom
Ain't the safest place
But all the Toads feel better
Since you came to this place

You think they got the best of you
I think you'll have the last laugh
Bet you'll get the upper hand on the Koopa gang
Bowser's gone and captured me
He knows you'll come running back
Baby don't you worry, go and do your thang

[chorus]
What doesn't kill you makes you smaller
Mushrooms make you taller
You know how to stomp the Goombas best
This leaf and tail makes you a fly-er
Flowers give you fire
Come here and rescue your Princess

[chorus 2]
What doesn't kill you makes you smaller, smaller
Just say "Hey, it's-a me!"
What doesn't kill you makes you smaller
Mushrooms make you taller
That's what makes you super, Mario

So now I'm thinking about training with you
You told me it was about time I learned to
Time to learn to grow up,
Time to learn how to fly
I'll throw fire just like you

[chorus]
A dozen Koopas make you smaller
Mushrooms make you taller
Green ones give you an extra life
Blue flowers help you shoot ice
Isn't that just so nice?
I'll never be King Bowser's wife

[repeat chorus 2]
Thanks to you I’m no damsel in distress
Thanks to you not just a floating princess
Thanks to you I'm finally thinking 'bout me
You know in the end one day I’ll finally give Bowser a beating
In the end

[chorus]
What doesn't kill me makes me smaller
Mushrooms make me taller
Floating 'round the kingdom in my dress
I'm throwing fruits and veggies
Giving Goombas wedgie's
Ain't no need to rescue this princess


What doesn't kill me makes me smaller, smaller
But fungus makes me grow
What doesn't kill me makes me smaller
Bowser's crown will falter
I can be like Super Mario

What doesn't kill you makes you smaller, smaller
Just say "Hey, it's-a me!"
What doesn't kill you makes you smaller
Mushrooms make you taller
That's what makes you super, Mario

Mario...
