The Lyrics

This is not just a parody, but a warning to all the gamers out there: stop playing video games, and go do something productive in your life! otherwise your fate will be the same!
I woke up playin' video games, caused my mind excrutiating pain
Ice all covered up my hands and thumbs; my feet's asleep, my brain is numb

I went out through Hyrule land, to much playin' gave me reprimands
Used up all the power lines; nobody's home, nobody minds

I woke up playin' NES, Neighbors still yelling at me to go to bed "You go to bed!!"
Shadows jumpin' everywhere in DOOM, Tension occurring is what I assumed

World of Warcraft all at night, picking carrots, picking fights (with everyone)
Light a candle if you will, couldn't pay electric bill

Mice have covered up my soiled domain, my parents tell me I'm insane!
Growing up with game consoles, some of them new some of them old

I rode out through San Andreas, out to find & kill some playas
People dying out in HALO, look at "em go! Look at "em go!

And the power's out, and I'm one to blame
Take it from your heart, not from video games
What a shame
What a shame

Is it the games, you avoid? I think you should make the choice
Just light a candle if you will, can't pay dang electric bill
Cause I am done, with video games

And the power's out, and I'm one to blame
Take it from your heart, not from video games

If you stay like me, you will die one day, killed by nothing but- YOUR OWN VIDEO GAME!
