The Lyrics

I heard on Saturday Night Live that Atari is going out of business. Their most popular video game was Pong in 1971.
Let's go play Pong now
Everybody's learning how
Come on, save Atari with me
(Come on, save Atari with...)

Early in the morning I be startin' out
My homeys will be playing some Pong
We're loading up the cartridge
Atari, goodbye
That's why I am writing this song

Atari's (Atari's') going out of business sadly (Goodbye, Atari)
Yes I'm gonna (surfin') miss them paddles (Goodbye, Atari) Yippee!
Atari's (Atari's') going out of business sadly (Goodbye, Atari)
Yes I'm gonna (surfin') miss them paddles (Goodbye, Atari) Yippee!

They go out of business
I saw it on SNL
Jimmy Fallon, he told me
(Come on, save Atari with...)

Atari gone too soon, ain't fun
My eyes now have tears
Abe Lincoln, he had a big nose
Was his birthday, Atari out of business this year
So if you're coming get ready to go

Atari's (Atari's') going out of business sadly (Goodbye, Atari)
Yes I'm gonna (surfin') miss them paddles (Goodbye, Atari) Yippee!
Atari's (Atari's') going out of business sadly (Goodbye, Atari)
Yes I'm gonna (surfin') miss them paddles (Goodbye, Atari) Yippee!

Let's go play Pong now
Everybody's learning how
Come on, save Atari with me
(Come on, save Atari with...)

I'm paddlin' the ball and I'm scoring more points
They're going out of business too
I tell you Atari's mighty wild
It's getting bigger every day
From Hawaii to the shores of Peru

Atari's (Atari's') going out of business sadly (Goodbye, Atari)
Yes I'm gonna (surfin') miss them paddles (Goodbye, Atari) Yippee!
Atari's (Atari's') going out of business sadly (Goodbye, Atari)
Yes I'm gonna (surfin') miss them paddles (Goodbye, Atari) Yippee!

Let's go play Pong now
Everybody's learning how
Come on, save Atari with me
(Come on, save Atari with...)

With me
Goodbye Atari
With me
Goodbye Atari
With me
Goodbye Atari
With me
Goodbye Atari
With me
Goodbye Atari
With me
Goodbye Atari
With me
Goodbye Atari

Atari actually went out of business a number of years ago. Some other company started publishing games under the Atari name. The site's still up, so its just a fake headline. It IS Weekend Update, y'know. Oh, and good parody.
