The Lyrics

Part of my "How We Do It Supplemental" self-challenge. Lack of content in a vidja game can really raise some hackles. Heckles. Feckles. Whatever.
Ain't right
Just paid 'bout sixty bucks for this game, right
Techniclly lower by five cents, exact price
But that's not what twitches my eye
So wrong
As soon as I got this thing home, so wrong
Booted it up and once it got its load on
The box blurb turned out to be lies, oh
All the content, yeah
Saw inside it, oh, oh, oh
I could beat it, ooh
In mere minutes, oh
That ain't content
It's just sadness

It's bare bones
Gamers seethin' (oh-ooh)
They don't like you
If you've been leavin', ooh-ooh
Games bare bones (oh-ooh)
I'll be leavin'
Mad comments on your site

Nerd rage
Beat a game in one night? That gets you nerd rage
It's proof that the developer's a jerk-face
Because they made me waste my time
Jack-all content, oh
No surprises, no surprises
Kids could beat it (in a single weekend, bollocks)
Nerds will hate it, oh
Lack of content
Gives us madness, aaaaah!

It's bare bones (bare bones, bare bones)
Nerds are seethin' (nerds are seethin') (oh-ooh)
They won't like you (they won't like you)
If you've been leavin' (if you've been leavin' parts out for DLC)
Ooh, it's bare bones (oh-ooh)
Gamers seethin'
We don't all play online
It's bare bones (ooh-ooh-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah)
Nerds are seethin' (oh-ooh)
They'll despise you (they'll despise you)
Epithet heapin', ooh-ooh (swear at you, swear at you)
It's bare bones (oh-ooh)
Gamers seethin'
Should know this wouldn't fly

Don't think they've abandoned us, no
They've made games quite fabulous, oh
Oh, it's the truth, we're still pissed
We're still pissed, they handled this
So bad, it's unanimous

It's bare bones
So bare bones

Of all the Childish Gambino songs to get vaguely big, of course it's the one that sounds nothing like his normal style. Typical.
