This is an instrumental version of "A Hero Never Surrenders," a song from "The All-New Super Mario Super Extravaganza!", my personal idea for a 21st-century animated cartoon series based upon Nintendo's "Super Mario" video game franchise. The song is basically the underwater theme from "Super Mario Bros." for the NES, orchestrated and set to the following lyrics, sung by a female vocalist:
True heroes never give up;
They haven't got a cause to back down.
Until the deed is done,
They've got to keep the evils out of town.
A hero never opts to surrender;
He cares for his people and he loves them tender.
He's faithful and trusting until the bitter end -
And you should be that way, my friend!
Heroism always comes with a price;
Sometimes you just have to think twice.
Now, sometimes a hero's just an ordinary man,
But it's best to remember, in every way you can...
[repeats main verse]
