The Lyrics

Sit Bach, relax and take a spin on this 1983 shooter...
1, 2, 3, uh
My Gyruss goes round and round
And has a kicking sound, and this I know for sure
Uh! But just because I wanna
Go on different planets open our doors
I try to fight the others, 'Cause the thought alone just took a spin right now
Thank god for our Konami, 'Cause they make the games the way
we all play now, Uh!

Gyruss, Gyruss
(repeat 3x)

I think I got it, Oh I think I got it
I know I think I got it or there's nothin' at aaa-aaa-aa-aa-aalll
You get together, oh, you get together, to join in this 2-player game
from Winter to Fall-aaa-aaa-aaa-aall
We get together, 'Cause this game is forever
Then what makes (5x) Gyruss so special
So why you, why you, why you, why you, why you
would spin your head around space, rather than play it here?

(repeat chorus)

Y'all don't wanna stand around here for the Jesters dance (oh oh)
(oh oh) Don't want to play no Mappy (oh oh) (oh oh)
'Cause this game is too crappy (oh oh)
Don't want to play no Gauntlet (oh oh)
'Cause this game makes me haunt-let
I'm just playing Gyruss
I'm just playing Gyruss

Hey alright now, alright now fellas (Yeah!)
What's the best thing to make 1st? (hi-score)
I can't hear ya! I said what's the best thing to make 1st? (hi-score)
All-right (13x)
Now ladies (yeah!)
I just wanna play a round of it in just a few seconds
'Cause I don't want this Joust thing for nothin'
I want to see you on your baddest behavior
Gimme a quarter, I am your neighbor
Here we go...

(sfx: gyruss sounds in the background)

Shoot it, Shoot, Shoot it (2x)
Shoot it, Shoot it like a Nintendo Zapper

While I play Pac-Man and Robotron
And Battlezone, we play Gyruss
(we play Gyruss)
We know what to do (repeat)
I know what to do

(repeat chorus 'til fade)
