The Lyrics

Ahhh, Pokemon. The single most hated, most loved video game fad, replete with branded hats, watches, toilet paper and jackhammers, and thousands of bratty kids screaming for it all. And I am proud to say I took part in it; I enjoyed it to its fullest. Heck, I still do! Here's a little bit I thought up to celebrate the coming release of Pokemon Diamond and Pearl. Not exactly a knee-slapper, but...er, straight from the heart. No pun intended >_>
I got my first RPG
Bought it at the mall, first time.
Played until my thumbs were red,
It was the winter of ’99.
Me and the guys from school
Got a link; we could trade/compete.
Game erased—next one got stolen,
I should’ve known I’d never complete.

But when I look back now,
That spring and winter seemed so epic.
Though, if I had the choice,
Guess I’d rather not repeat it,
Those were the best days of my life.

Ain’t no room for complaining
When you’re stuck in middle school
Spent my ‘tween days down in the dumps, hearin’
“Yo Pokemon’s not cool, yo!”

Playin’ with my GBC,
With its monochromatic colors.
Oh, and then we saw Advance,
I knew those days were gone forever.
They were the best days of my life.

Oh yeah,
Back in the winter of ’99,
Oh!

Man, we trained Pidgey blind,
We were young and callow,
Thought level 12 was high.
I guess no fad can last forever…
(My Squirtle! No!)

And now the games are changin’
Look at everything in Diamond/Pearl.
Sometimes I’ll just play that old Gameboy,
Reminisce and catch some Poliwhirl.
Playin’ with my GBC,
With its monochromatic colors.
Oh, and then we saw Advance,
I knew those days were gone forever.
Those were the best days of my life.

Oh yeah,
Back in the winter of ’99,
Uh huh.
It was the winter of ’99!

Dude, that was such a perfect parody. It was more reminiscent than funny for me, but that's a good thing. Still 5, 5, 5. Oh, good times back then, good times...
