The Lyrics

What do you get when you cross an alien, some monsters and an upright machine gone totally wrong? Give up?
When you're alone and life is making you lonely
You can always play-Wacko
When you got worries, and you've got time to hurry
There's a game i know-Wacko
Just listen to the music of the zapping of the monsters
Mismatching it zaps them back, and life now feels just pretty
Let's take a krooz

The upright is tilting there
You can forget all your troubles, forget all your cares
and play Wacko, it'll be great to play
Wacko-Great 80's game for sure
Wacko-everyone's playin' for you

Don't hang around, just let the tensions surround you
when the marquee shows-Wacko
Maybe you'll know the tricks and tips you will show
'til the arcade reads "closed"-Wacko
Kapt'n Krooz'r just rides around and does a bossa nova
You'll be playin' that game, too before the game is over
Happy again

The upright is tilting there
You can forget all your troubles, forget all your cares
and play Wacko, It'll be great to play
Wacko-Great 80s game I know
Wacko-Everyone's playin' for you

(instrumental break)

And you may find that game thats just funny to understand to
Kapt'n Krooz'r's a man who likes to krooz and even zap to
Krooz'n along

So maybe i'll see you there
You can forget all your troubles, forget all your cares
and play Wacko-it'll be great to play
Wacko-Great 80's game I know
Wacko-Everyone's playin' for you

Wacko, wacko, wacko, wacko....

Is this a real game? Weird, if it is.

Arcade Junkie, you know more games than anyone else I've ever heard of. Don't know the game, but you do a good job of describing it in a parody context.
