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!

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.

This is the history of Nintendo!
From Nester to Ness, Waluigi to Wario...
Soon to be taught in schools all over Tokyo,
To solve the mysteries of Nintendo...
This was the history of Nintendo!
