Super Mario Odyssey “Jump-Up Super Star!” Lyrics & Singer

If you try to think back to a time long ago, a time that was E3 2017, you’ll remember this very catchy song that played throughout most of Nintendo’s presentation. It was a song that tied into Super Mario Odyssey and even if you haven’t heard it since E3, we can all but promise you that we haven’t heard the last of that song.

Kate Higgins, the current voice of Mario character Pauline, sings the song. In an Ask me Anything on Reddit from June, someone had the courage to ask Super Mario Odyssey game producer Mr. Koizumi about the inspiration of the song.

As we were developing Pauline more as a character, we know that she was going to be interested in jazz. It was interesting for us to have the first song in a Mario game with vocals. Have you guys been finding yourself singing it?

Rather than trying to avoid it and getting mad, let’s just embrace it and learn the lyrics. If you don’t already know all the lyrics after watching E3, let us give you a refresher with the lyrics, courtesy of Genius.

[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
Odyssey– Yes, see! (x7)
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!
