The Lyrics

This about video games with a small tribute to the first :)
Just as I thought I was going alright
I find out it's left, when I turned to the right
s'always the same, it's just a game, that's Pong
I could play day, and I'd play night
Screen it's black and the ball it is white
s'always the same, it's just a game, that's Pong

I can't stop so I will go
Pinball's got me in a roll
I can't feel a thing in my head from Nintendo
so why does it always seem to be
That I keep dieing in GTA3
s'always the same, it's just a game, that's Pong

Turning it on, turning it off
Making me feel like I play too much
Gaming this fool, even playing loads of games online
running around, staying up all night
Buying them all even off selling my bike
Playstation 2's just making me buy it all at one time

I could leave but I won't go
Because Lara Croft told me so
I can't feel a thing in my hands from Nintendo
but why does it always seem to be
That I just can't seem to beat Vice City?
s'always the same, just a game, that's Pong

Play that PS2
Even Nintendo's 'Cube
there's no point in trying to pretend
The Sims' have me too
Eating up that EQ
still I'll be playing it til the end

I could stop if I want to
Just wait there, I'm almost through
I can't feel a thing in my head or in my toes
but why does it always seem to be
I die each time in Max Payne's Level 3?
s'always the same, just a game, that's Pong

Play that PS2
Even Nintendo's 'Cube
there's no point in trying to pretend
The Sims' have me too
Eating up that EQ
still I'll be playing it til the end

Just as I thought I was doing alright
To find out it's left, when I turned to the right
s'always the same, it's just a game, that's Pong
PC at day, X-Box at night
Screen it's black and my mind it is white
s'always the same, it's just a game, that's Pong

That's Pong

What's wrong with this picture?! All these positive comments and no votes... I voted 5-5-5! By the way, since you like video games, you should check out my parody "Harder To Beat". It's based on "Harder To Breathe" by Maroon 5...
