The Twitter account unusual things shared this brief snippet of Mario “singing” the beloved paean to West Virginia that was first released in 1971. While we are fairly certain this absurd cover won’t prove to be as timeless as Denver’s original, it will definitely make you laugh.

So dumb, which is why we like it so much. The part that really kills us is the “okie-dokie,” but we just really appreciate a classic country hit getting the added lyric of “mamma mia!” Thatsa authentic!

Also, we know you’re now guaranteed to have “Take Me Home, Country Roads” stuck in your head for the next week, and to that we say, “You’re welcome.” Because whether it’s Mario giving us a version with his particular vernacular, or some guy at the bar who is singing way too loud while he tells his friends, “Of course I put this on!” it’s a perfect song.
Now would it be possible to get Waluigi to do a cover of Eddie Money’s “Take Me Home Tonight” and also a version of “Rapper’s Delight” from Toad, Peach, and Wario? We’d definitely hit play on both of those versions too.
