The Lyrics

Hey, baby, you’re slayin’ at pong,
The game we used to play
Before tech became so strong.
Hey, baby, you’re slayin’ at pong;
I could play it never; my moves were all wrong.

It’s the one started ’bout ’73;
It’s the one was made by folks at Atari.
Today, don’t look so groovy—
Resolutions now can equal the movies’.

Hey, baby, you’re slayin’ at pong,
The game we used to play
Before others came along.
Hey, baby, you’re slayin’ at pong—
I could make it never; my moves were all wrong.

Playin’ memories are coming back to me.
Can you remember the way it used to be?

It made me feel like slamming
My hand right through the screen that I was damning!

Hey, baby, play baby.

It’s the one that always defeated me;
It’s the one that made me bawl like a baby.
When we’d play, you’d abuse me
Who had the luck every time to lose? Me!

Hey, baby, play, baby.
You’re playing at Pong these many years, now.
Hey, baby, play, baby.
You still are playing at Pong. Won’t get near, me
Hey, baby, play, baby.
Won’t go near it, not me!

I think game tech should have stopped at Pong, or maybe, just the ping. I prefer simplicity. Well constructed sumission, here.
