The Lyrics

Quarter loading, drinking, smoking
Yes, I played rounds or two
The 80s pulled me, paved a way
With video games had knack

Drink another beer and plunk
Lots of money in the slots
I played a pilot punk
Who’s gunnin’ proud

Was playing all night
They said I won’t bright
I did seem a little weird
I can’t lose my ship today
Hey, heeeey

Every night I loved to fight
I really blew up things
I shot at Landers, Mutant herds
And the ships from the enemies

Now I would smoke a pack of Camels
Ash heaps on the floor
The waitress, she took care of me
She’d sell me all this beer

While drinking all night
Was fighting good fight
It did seem a little weird
I’ve got one more coin to play
Play, plaaaay

Whatever happened to all those seasons
Gaming through the years
All the time I spent defending
Now they’ve reappeared

When laptop boots up, I’m so glad
The screen is turning black
Missiles booming, song is grooving
It’s my past coming back

I’m living alright
I’m fighting the fight
To some, I’m a little weird
I can’t pull myself away
Way, waaaayyyy

Thanks, guys. To be honest, I'm with Rob. Galaga was truly my game.

I used to be hooked on Space Invaders. Our pizza parlour had a game room and boy did I wear that machine out. Sure beat pinball!
