A/N: This one's "Blaze of Glory" by Jon Bon Jovi, done from Bowser's POV. The original song was written by Bon Jovi (the guy, not the band as a whole) for the film Young Guns II, and is the eponymous track of his first solo album, Blaze of Glory.


Bowser's Blaze of Glory

I wake up in the morning
And I raise my weary head
I've got gold coins, silken pillows
And a castle 'round my bed
But I don't know where I'm going
Though the world knows where I've been
I'm a Koopa on the run
A fireball lover
An Ember in the wind

When I was brought into this world
They said I was born in sin
Well at least they gave me something
I didn't have to steal or fail to win
Well they tell me that I'm hated
Yeah I'm a hated man
I'm an Ostro in your sights
I'm a dragon to your knight
Plumber, catch me if you can

I'm going down in a blaze of glory
Take me now but know the truth
I'm going down in a blaze of glory
Stars, I always drew first
But he drew first blood
I'm a wizard's son
Call me villain

You ask about my conscience
When I kidnap you once more
You ask why I can't just be a good guy
When he takes you out my door
You say I'll never know love
Or what it's like to sing songs in the rain
Peach, I've seen love come
I've seen it shot down
I've seen it die in vain

Shot down in a blaze of glory
Take me now but know the truth
'Cause I'm going down in a blaze of glory
Stars, I always drew first
But he drew first blood
I'm a monster's son
Call me villain

Each night I go to bed
I pray the Stars my wishes keep
No I ain't looking for forgiveness
But before I'm six foot deep
Stars, I got to ask a favour
And you better understand
I've played the game to the fullest
Let the Koopa kill the man
Fighting for the princess
Guess I'll make my final stand

Shot down in a blaze of glory
Take me now but know the truth
I'm going down in a blaze of glory
Stars I always drew first
But he drew first blood
I'm a Koopa's son
Call me villain
I'm a villain
Villain…
