The Lyrics

Everyone's talking about how good video game graphics are. I think it's about gameplay. Like the old Mario and Donkey Kong. I loved those games, not because of their graphics (Let's be honest, they sucked) but because of the fun I had while playing.
Did-ja here about that new game system?
It is the first one of it's kind.
It was made by Billy G's company,
They say it is top of the line!
That system is something I have been wanting,
Stead of buyin' trash,
You can spend a lot of money.
You say you'd rather buy something useful,
Funny, this is the XBOX 360.

The plumber I'm playing as ain't plumbing,
But he's sure getting lots of gold!
That neat little tune is what I'm humming,
I've gotta admit, that song never gets old.
But the thing is, I can't beat that last level,
If I don't beat it soon, I'll be going mental!
SNES, 64 or DS
It's still Nintendo to me.

Oh, it doesn't matter what they say on their boxes!
If it's purple, black, red, blue or green.
There's systems comin' out,
They will tell you the whole story in a gaming Magazine...
Aimed at the nerdy teens.

Hey, guess what? It's a brand new side-scroller,
And it is a big pain in the ass...
Even if we know that it will be boring
We'll always give it half a chance.
Go blast DDR, and you'll need some new speakers.
Can't beat a game? There are websites for you cheaters!
Round 2, PS2... IQ? Toodle-Oo!
Can't wait till the PS3!

---Lead Synth Video Game Sound Interlude---

Maaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaar-Yo!
I still like to play the old Atari,
It's got games the XBOX can't touch.
I been playin' Super Smash Bros Melee
I think just a little too much.
Today there are tons of games about gunning,
Grand Theft Auto games make a whole lotta money.
About graphics? No Way! It's 'bout the Gameplay!
I'm saying that honestly!

Everybody's talkin' 'bout the new games,
Funny, but they're still Vid-yo games to me.

Question - August 26, 2006 - Report this comment
in the line with super smash bros melee, is 'bros' supposed to be pronounced bros or brothers?
Silver Power - August 26, 2006 - Report this comment
Yes. If I meant brothers, I would've put it there. ^_^
