The Lyrics

I am an avid gamer
And I know my hobby's grand
Another online player
Inside a dig'tal land
I work to be the champion
The best I'll ever be
I know every game and every name
From COD to Dark Souls 3
And I'm living happily

I am an avid gamer
I don't always play so nice
I've dealt with trolls and traitors
And their stupid sneaky vice
But still the noobs annoy me
I wish they'd quit and go
So I show them my skills, leave them paying the bills
"I h8 u m8," how they try to berate
And all I can think is "LOL"

I am an avid gamer
Multiplayer round the world
I've played all kinds of tournaments
No need for grades or girls
They recognize my face now
They know my username
Oh it's the best when I'm put to the test
And I get paid, no need to get laid
Yeah it's never the same

I am an avid gamer
Some say my lifestyle's wrong
"You should spend some time outside
You're indoors way too long"
Well I've got to tell you something
If you find fault with me
"I'm just living my life, my mind's sharp as a knife
At least I'm getting paid for the things I've played"
And I go on merrily

I am an avid gamer
I'd say I'm passionate
I've stayed up three nights nonstop
And I think that proves it
It took me years to get good
They all said it was a waste
Yet my dedication always pushed me on
Only had a few friends by my quest's end
But I love victory's taste

I am an avid gamer
A techno-master sage
Still raking in the money
When I'm on YouTube's stage
I rock at Grand Theft Auto
Dominating at Warcraft
Smash Bros. melee, Battlefield all day
Some Assassins' Creed is what I need
And I pretty much own Minecraft

I am an avid gamer
And I know my hobby's grand
Another online player
Inside a dig'tal land
I work to be the champion
The best I'll ever be
I know every game and every name
From COD to Dark Souls 3
And I'm living happily!

This is one hell of an effort! It's well paced for a pretty difficult song. Amiright tends to ignore newbies, but maybe we should stop where you're concerned. Hey everybody, check this parody out!!

Thanks for highlighting this, CML. It is excellent. And far better that E.S.Blofeld spends his time writing parodies than plotting world domination :-)

Yeah, this one is great too. Although I am not an avid gamer; I play Madden '11 sometimes though
