The Lyrics

So i was listening to the original song, and I thought "Hey, video games have come a long way since Atari & Intellivision, so why not do a parody that reflects this?" Now, as the decade draws to a close, let us look at how video games have changed over the past 30 years. Enjoy the parody! DKTOS?
Buy it, baby,
Ship it, baby,
Hook up your machine.

Put the disc in,
Skip the intro,
Let’s start the routine.

Play it, baby,
Beat it, baby,
These games don’t cause crime.

Get achievements,
Gamerscore,
Go through a second time.

Zelda, Halo,
James Bond, Mario,
Play them video games.

Grand Theft Auto,
Call of Duty,
I love them all the same!

Offline, online,
Competition’s
Asking to be pwned.

Your score, my score,
Low score, high score,
Together or alone.

Let’s link to the Ethernet
And play on the Internet.
Let’s flee from reality,
Let’s keep our morality.

Don’t you want to play some more?)

Zelda, Halo,
James Bond, Mario,
Play them video games.
