Just sit back and relax, my friend.
Today's lesson won't take too long.
And to make it more interesting,
It takes the form of this nerdy song.

The year is 1889,
Before the accolades and awards.
Nintendo got its start
From making hanafuda cards.

For a century, they grew and planned
To discover just what sells.
Making vacuums and Ultra Hand
And love testers and love hotels.

But they soon zeroed in on games
Like the Game & Watch and Color TV.
In '81, they made Donkey Kong,
And the rest is history.

This is the history of Nintendo.
Spanning the years, hanafuda to Mario...
Straight from Kyoto, with a guy named Miyamoto,
This is the history of Nintendo.

1985: Future stars like Link and Samus, and portly plumbers hit the scene.
'89: All our mothers took our Game Boys to play Tetris on that tiny screen.
'91: Super Mario World taught us we could fly while riding dinosaurs.
'94: Virtual Boy had us seeing red, returning systems to their stores.

'96: Let's-a go with Mario to new horizons...
'98: Pokémania caught our hearts and dollars too.
2001: The GBA and GameCube lost some marketshare that day.
But we still loved to play Smash Bros. Melee...!

So goes the history of Nintendo.
From Ana to Kat, Pikachu to Lucario.
A fierce crescendo peppered with strange innuendo,
This is the history of Nintendo.

2004, the DS.
2006, the Wii.
2011, the 3DS, a DS in 3D.
2012, the Wii U, out by this year's end,
And so my friend, well now you know the history of Nintend...o.
