    All eight bits of me
    Are solidly
    Committed to side-scrolling

    And no enemies
    Can vanquish me
    Or the power I'm controlling

    But I suddenly scream "****!""
    Because my guy has just been hit
    With my hits points indicator less than full

    But it's quite inconsequential
    And my wrath will be torrential
    For the following one second
    I am invinci-a-ble

    ('Cause I'm a)
    One Second
    One Second Ghost
    One Second
    One Second Ghost
    The cause of my awesomeNES
    Has been diagnosed
    ('Cause I'm a)
    One Second
    One Second Ghost

    Post contact I am flashing
    And on the screen I'm dashing
    'Cause my time as a specter is so limited

    But even though I've just been damaged
    I turn that to my advantage
    You can't stop this platform gaming rivet head

    ('Cause I'm a)
    One Second
    One Second Ghost
    The cause of your imminent death
    Has been diagnosed

    One Second
    One Second Ghost
    You try to do me in
    Well almost

    You get
    Vengeance from the other side
    Where pixel poltergeists reside
    It's the power you play with
    When you play Nintendo

    So take this song as a tutorial
    For going incorporeal
    'Cause if you strike me down
    I'll rise like a crescendo

    Okay. So a song about video games, sure.
    A song about platformers, okay, fine.
    A song about I frames...
    That is an awesomely specific topic.
