The Lyrics

Asteroids is the very 1st, the year it all began
Berzerk is a shooting type, evil otto's bouncing
Congo Bongo is the ape, funny how I laugh
Defender pictures a scene, and puts it on the map

Elevator Action can shoot gangsters up or down
Food Fight can shoot food to chefs, to get some ice cream around
Just like a Coors Light ad, Galaga has a ship of twins
Holey Moley beats the crap of moles and begins again

Interstellar takes us all on, a laser fantasy
Joust took ostriches on each other by beating out the crap
KLAX is Tetris on steroids, the bestest I am at
And Lady Bug's just a Lady Bug, ain't no need to ask

Ms. Pac-Man is a friend of mine, loved for many years
NARC tracks down the alcohol, crack and drug dealers
OutRun lets me drive a car, and breaks past 45
Pac-Man's phenomenom chain, yes, it stays alive

Qix, the artist game, just use buttons to draw a box
Robotron won't need buttons, but those 2 joysticks rock!
Space Invaders started the revolution in '79
And Tempest has cool vector graphics right before your eyes

Well, I saw a insane game, I call Us. vs. Them
and Vangaurd shoots the living hell, and the soundtrack is just kickin'
I can shoot people in the maze, thanks to the Wizard of Wor
and Dazzler and Colussus won't join the X-Men any more

Uh-uh, not Dazzler

Zaxxon thought the game was simple, shooting all the bad guys off
and Gyruss can spin you around, you'll turn your head and cough
Whip those snakes out in the Snake Pit, controlled by an Outback Jack
And if digging holes put you 6 feet under, Dig Dug takes you way back

Arabian wished us all on a storybook to see
and one rock band came to the 'cade, their name was Journey
Domino Man's one hobby: Set 'em up and knock 'em down
and if you find the sounds of Rally-X, take a look around

Buck Rogers does like to travel, to get from near and far
"I hunger if i'll eat your ship," said an angry Sinistar
Bosconian goes from blast-off, all the way to condition red
And if you're good in Moon Patrol, your buggy goes from Purple to Red

Crazy Climber, climb that buliding, take it way high
Scramble and some Super Cobra will take you to the sky
"Galaxians is what we are", that's what the aliens said there
And if you're daring just like Dirk, you might find Dragon's Lair

Astron Belt and Cliff Hanger show my laserdisc love
and Pole Position takes you to racing heaven from above
Smash TV and Total Carnage, raged us with violence
And SF2 and Mortal Kombat, rounds out this long list

Very good song, too bad it didn't get more votes/comments. The pacing was a bit off, but still very good.

Not very funny, but it was clever and very entertaining. And you listed them in alphabetical order! wow... I'm guessing you play video games a lot.

Um... I know of the original, and have heard it, and this parody has very little similarities to the original besides the 88 lines. Very disappointing. It seems like you just got an idea, "Oh let's make a parody based off of this song!" and didn't think after that initial thought. There's several instances of extremely bad grammar, broken phrases and misplaced adjectives that just make this hard to follow. Listen closely to The Nails original, and understand that this parody sucks. Your humor is very limited and didn't even make me laugh. You bring disgrace to the gaming community of old classic games.
