The Lyrics

You ever have trouble with a video game? I have. You ever try to get help only to be met with ways to outright hack the game to victory? I haven't, but this dude has...
I know I often make posts to complain
That I keep losin' my lives too quickly
I'd like help to beat this game
But right now, it seems that you've all tricked me
I thought this forum here would help me out
But then this forum's citizenship disclosed
Great tips to hack the game's code, no doubt
But that's not what I'm askin' for, you know

I don't wanna use tools
I don't wanna use the debug mode, that's cheatin' now
Don't wanna use tools
Because I would like to simply get by
This stupid part without cheats, sounds so lame
I don't wanna use tools

I hate to die, it's my constant state
Thought hardcore gamers could crush this in their sleep
I won't program in save states
Or whatever you want to force from me

I don't wanna use tools
I don't wanna use some GameShark or whatever now
Don't wanna use tools
I'm not gonna type cheat codes or the like
So why would I hack now, hack now?

I do wonder if I up and misclicked
But checkin' the title of this board, bud
"Simple Game Tips"? That definition works
If you speedrun like wow, but

I don't wanna use tools
I don't wanna use more laptops than I can buy now
Don't wanna use tools
Just don't wanna die for the umpteenth time (sick of bein' shot down)
I don't wanna use tools
I don't wanna use up my bucks, don't have a lot now
Don't wanna use tools
I don't wanna fry my only hard drive (don't want it to break down)
I don't wanna use tools
I don't wanna use what you all think is legit now
Don't wanna use tools
Call me a noob, fine, if that's all, goodbye
I don't wanna use tools

"Alright, fine, dude, maybe if you just use these bugs the game didn't get patched for, then maybe" "I don't wanna use those either!"

Even Speedwagon doesn't want to use them as well. It's kind of nostalgic since some of those hacks can be buggy. No idea if Missingno. counts but yeah.
