The Lyrics

Once upon a time, 22 years ago, Gary Garcia & Jerry Buckner were to create a hit song and the rest is history.
They were 2 best friends and songwriters from Atlanta way
They wanna write a song all the DJs could play
There was a Pac-Man machine there
And then they played the machine, and then they wrote a song there
A one-hit wonder now, A favorite thereafter
Buckner & Garcia had a hit called Pac-Man Fever

They wrote the lyrics true and then recorded it
And then they made a single out and that was it
And when the DJs came to play
It was a fine Top 10 hit, just years before there was Clay
A one-hit wonder now, a favorite thereafter
Buckner & Garcia had a hit called Pac-Man fever

A-toot, A-toot, A-toodelayatoot,
Turn that stereo on, put on the record
When they wrote a song, It just didn't take long from beginning
And they played it from the city to the 'burbs
Buckner & Garcia had a hit called Pac-Man Fever

You think that was the only song? Well, they ain't done
They want to make a record, boy and it was on
They played the games and wrote the songs
And made an full album out, 'cause it was 8 songs long
It's just an album now, a favorite thereafter
Buckner & Garcia had a hit called Pac-Man Fever

I can still turn it up and hear the sounds of Pac-Man Fever
When I get home from work, turn on the stereo and hear that CD
And it's still an online favorite thereafter
Buckner & Garcia had a hit called Pac-Man Fever

A-toot, a-toot, a-tootleyaatoot, Put on Pac-Man Fever
'Cause I'm going out of my mind and it's driving me crazy
And we can still sing along to after
Buckner & Garcia had a hit called Pac-Man Fever

(break)

The DJs played the album every day and night
And when the kids just played it, boy it was a sight
They clap their hands and stomped their feet
And go down to the arcade to hear the beats
Whoa, Whoa, I can still hear the song thereafter
Buckner & Garcia had a hit called Pac-Man Fever

A-toot, A-toot, A-toodleyaatodie
DJ, please play my favorite song
'Cause when you hear it, you know that's it on
So, let it spin
America will hear that song, thereafter
Buckner & Garcia had a hit called Pac-Man Fever
