The Lyrics

Here's another novelty hit that you guys & girls missed. Since this song is about a popular video game, I thought it would be fitting to make a video-game based parody of this song. Pokémon is a video game series where you explore a continent trying to capture creatures known as Pokémon. To do this, you must use a Pokémon of your own to weaken the other Pokémon without defeating it, then use a device called a Poké Ball to capture it. Another main goal is to beat special Pokémon trainers known as Gym Leaders, earn badges from them, and defeat a powerful group of trainers known as the Elite Four. Anyways, enjoy the parody! DKTOS?
Well now, I’ve finished all my homework & I’m gonna play my Game Boy.
Got a new game for my birthday & since then, it’s brought me loads of joy!
I gotta catch all of those creatures as I move from town to town,
I’m gonna capture those guys just as soon as their health’s down!

‘Cause I got Poké-Fever,
(Poké-Fever),
It’s drivin’ me crazy!
(Drivin’ me crazy)
I got Poké-Fever,
(Poké-Fever),
I’m goin’ outta my mind!
(Goin’ outta my mind!)
I got Poké-Fever,
(Poké-Fever),
I’m goin’ outta my mind!
(Goin’ outta my mind!)

(Pokémon sound effects)

I got all the badges now, up until the eighth Gym.*
Wild Rhydon** has appeared & I know it’s either me or him,
So I’ll counter him with Blastoise & try to keep my cool.
Gonna meet the Elite Four & take ‘em all back to school!

I got Poké-Fever,
(Poké-Fever),
It’s drivin’ me crazy!
(Drivin’ me crazy)
I got Poké-Fever,
(Poké-Fever),
I’m goin’ outta my mind!
(Goin’ outta my mind!)
I got Poké-Fever,
(Poké-Fever),
I’m goin’ outta my mind!
(Goin’ outta my mind!)

(Pokémon sound effects)

I’m gonna Leer to the left***
And Bind to the right,
‘Cause Weedle’s too slow,
And Mewtwo’s outta sight!

[guitar solo]

Now I’ve beat the Champion, but my Pokédex ain’t filled yet,
So it’s back around the block, but I’ve got no reason to fret.
I’m really cookin’ now, catchin’ everything in sight,
Batteries are low, so I’ll wait ‘till tomorrow night.

‘Cause I got Poké-Fever,
(Poké-Fever),
It’s drivin’ me crazy!
(Drivin’ me crazy)
I got Poké-Fever,
(Poké-Fever),
I’m goin’ outta my mind!
(Goin’ outta my mind!)
I got Poké-Fever,
(Poké-Fever),
Drivin’ me-Drivin’ me-drivin’ me crazy!
(Drivin’ me crazy)
Poké-Fever,
(Poké-Fever),
I’m goin’ outta my mind!
(Goin’ outta my mind!)
P-P-P- Poké-Fever,
(Poké-Fever),
It’s drivin’ me crazy!
(Drivin’ me crazy)
I got Poké-Fever,
(Poké-Fever),
I’m goin’ outta my mind!
(Goin’ outta my mind!)…

[fade out]
Explanations:

*There are 8 Gym Leaders in all.

**Rhydon, Blastoise, Weedle, and Mewtwo are just a few of the many Pokémon in the Pokémon games.

***Leer & Bind are moves that Pokémon can perform.

I'm sorry I couldn't be more thorough, but it's pretty late & I need sleep. If you need further explanation, ask me or Google it.
