The Lyrics

This was the game that started the video game revolution...
They drove a hundred miles
To play some pong tonight
Ball bounces up and down
Keeps going round and round
The game that started it all
Made a reality
But when you play some Pong
It plays with you or me

Joystick up--Ball goes down
Joystick up--Turning things around
Joystick up--Ball down
Joystick up--And hit it with the white block

(chorus)
Everybody play Pong tonight
Everybody have fun tonight
Everybody play Pong tonight
Everybody have fun tonight
Everybody play Pong

I'm playing Pong tonight
With the loud beeping sound
I use my joystick at home
To make the paddle up & down

Joystick Up--ball goes down
Joystick Up--Let's hear the beeping sound
Joystick Up--Ball down
Joystick Up--And hit it with the white block

(repeat chorus)

It was a game they played more
"Avoid missing ball for hi-score"
By everyone challenging anyone
The Pong revolution goes on

Across the nation, Across the world
Everybody play Pong tonight
A game that started it all

(repeat chorus)

Yep, this here 45-year-old Geekasaurus Rex remembers the little bouncing pixel-ball well.

5-5-5 Ahh..good ol' Pong....ahh...the memories. I still have an Atari packed away somewhere. I laughed when I saw the title on the list. Nice job!
