lyrics

Running to the right,
I’m running to the right,
Running to the right,
I just gotta keep on running to the right now.

One day I woke up,
and I started running.
My legs are pumping,
fireballs a-gunnin'.

I’m gonna fight my way to your evil lair,
all your minions don’t scare me.
And when I stomp my boot down on your face,
you will taste my victory.

I’ve gotta find a power-up,
Don’t want to miss my next jump,
‘Cause I just used my last 1-up,
And all your mini-bosses better watch out for me.

‘Cause I’m a side-scrolling hero.
Can’t let my time get to zero.
And eating fungus makes me grow.
‘Cause I’m a side-scrolling hero.
I just gotta keep on running to the right now.

Now don’t ask me,
about my motivation.
I don't know how,
I got in this situation.

So if you’re stuck on a level and you keep on running,
the same direction every day,
You better glitch yourself out of that trap,
there’s gotta be a better way.

I’ve gotta find a power-up,
Don’t want to miss my next jump,
‘Cause I just used my last 1-up,
And all your mini-bosses better watch out for me.

‘Cause I’m a side-scrolling hero.
Can’t let my time get to zero.
And eating fungus makes me grow.
‘Cause I’m a side-scrolling hero.
I just gotta keep on running to the right now.

Jogging left to right,
sudden death in sight but not tonight.
Three lives in two dimensions.
Evil henchman got cruel intentions.

But they're chess pawns.
Watch 'em get stepped on.
Get gone I hope you don't respawn.
Score is high and patience low,
know it's a party I hate to go.

'Cause it feels like I'm stuck on a treadmill.
Any motion's cool don't want to stand still.
Need a break from the monotony of all of the corporate monopoly
Possibly part tragedy and part comedy.

As I hold down B to dash
Trying to leave the past on this beaten path.
And the timer's tickin', bad guys gunnin'.
I ain't here for nothing man I gotta keep runnin'.

I’ve gotta find a power-up,
Don’t want to miss my next jump,
‘Cause I just used my last 1-up,
And all your mini-bosses better watch out for me.

‘Cause I’m a side-scrolling hero.
Can’t let my time get to zero.
Somebody buy me a beer-o.
‘Cause I’m a your side-scrolling hero.
I just gotta keep on running.

Mario’s running.
Sonic’s running.
Mega Man’s running.
Samus she’s a-running.

Bonk is running.
Alex Kidd is running.
Shovel Knight’s running.
We just gotta keep on running to the right.
