The Lyrics

The original song talked about chess. I wouldn't last a night in Bangkok because I suck at chess. So I related the song to a game of skill I'm good at, Bejeweled. And this song basically teaches the game to those who've never played it before. Practice makes perfect, remember. You kinda got to sing this song a little faster than the original, but it works as a whole. Enjoy!
Bejeweled, it's a classic game
And you really gotta know about its claim to fame
The creme de la creme of the skill world
In a show with everything but Bobby Fischer
Time flies, but you gotta get it
Move those jewels, make those moves, whether three, four, or five
No matter, but you know
That the more that you get, the more you ultimately score
It's combos, or power gems, or hyper cubes
Or, or this way

One night in Bejeweled, and you may feel crummy
Unless you make the moves so you can win
I don't know what that's like, I've never been there
But I have got further than many have
Let's see if you can get up to Level 10 (twice!)

One game's never like another
When the moves that you make are all that really matter
(It's a trick, it's a sham, it's really such a pity)
(When you do well once, and then you last a diddy)
What d'ya mean?
You've seen one rotten, god-awful, don't make move
(But, yet, you do it, yeah)
(And now the game is over and you are through)
Get real! You're talking to a genius
Whose every move's among the purest
I move my jewels where need be, thank you

One night in Bejeweled may lead to your downfall
Unless you make the moves to stay alive
One night in Bejeweled could lead you to the top
But one false move could put you in a bind
Let's see if you can get up to Level 10 (twice!)

The world's gonna be my witness
To the ultimate test of jewel-moving fitness
It grips me more than would a Spongebob show or declining music sales
Thank God I'm only ruling the game, making it mine
I don't see you all making the kind of moves I'm contemplating
I'd let you play, I would invite you
But the bar that I've set would not excite you
So you better go back to your jobs, your couches, your tanning salons

One night in Bejeweled, and you may feel crummy
Unless you make the moves so you can win
I don't know what that's like, I've never been there
But I have got further than many have
Let's see if you can get up to Level 10 (twice!)

One night in Bejeweled may lead to your downfall
Unless you make the moves to stay alive
One night in Bejeweled could lead you to the top
But one false move could put you in a bind
Let's see if you can get up to Level 10 (twice!)

I don't know the original(I tried finding it on a downloadable song site, it wasn't there). I like it though, I've never played Bejeweled, although I have played(and own) the puzzle game Columns.
