The Lyrics

An ode to a classic retro game...
Walkin' into the local arcade
Back in nineteen eighty-three
I'm seeing all the games that I’ve played
But now they all are boring me
Now what am I gonna play?
That’s a challenge for my wits
I really need a game with some aliens
That I can blast to bits

Playin’ some Space Invaders
Shootin’ them up ‘cause they’re coming down
Playin’ some Space Invaders
Losin’ the game when they hit the ground

Pac-man is not too exciting
Eat some dots, then some more
And Frogger is uninviting
I always get a lousy score
I kinda like Donkey Kong
But you can’t shoot anyone
I like to kill aliens that look like an octopus
‘Cause it is really fun

Playin’ some Space Invaders
Hittin’ those buttons furiously
Playin’ some Space Invaders
I take this game too seriously

Gonna blast, at their ass
Gotta hurry up, they’re getting fast
Playin’ some Space Invaders
Shootin’ them up ‘cause they’re coming down

Space Invaders

Coming down…

Playin’ some Space Invaders
Shootin’ them up ‘cause they’re coming down
Playin’ some Space Invaders
Losin’ the game when they hit the ground

Gonna spend all of my quarters
Wish I was a millionaire
I'm gonna be a real high scorer
And put my initials there
Gonna blast my shelters through
So I can clear out all those rows
I’m gonna fire at the spot that they’re gonna be
And shoot some U.F.O.’s

Playin’ some Space Invaders
Hittin’ those buttons furiously
Playin’ some Space Invaders
I take this game too seriously

On the edge, on the edge
Baby one more game, I need revenge
Playin’ some Space Invaders
Shootin’ them up ‘cause they’re coming down
Gonna blast, at their ass
Gotta hurry up, they’re getting fast
Playin’ some Space Invaders
Losin’ the game when they hit the ground

(repeat)

You bet yer Asteroids this was good. 555

I never played this game myself, but this is a very nicely paced parody. Made me giggle. 5-5-5.

I kinda like Donkey Kong too. Actually he's my favorite Nintendo character, because he's so unpopular with the gaming community. I think it's because he doesn't have any special powers or anything like the rest of the cast. This is a good song, and I've played the game a few times, and I suck ass at it. Retro games I liked were Pac-Man, Snake, and Tetris, Oh and Pong!

Almost did a Frogger song, I would have felt slighted by this. Nice job on one of my other favorite old video games.

Sweet little trip down nostalgia avenue here, Mikey... I was always partial to a bit of SI and Roids. 555
Red Ant - November 14, 2007 - Report this comment
Seriously excellent video game parody. Excellent rhymes and word subs, and not too specific on the content (not that SI is a real in-depth game..). You could probably make a good video parody of this in no time... on the other hand, singing like Steven Tyler, well, best of luck with that. 555.

(Dec2) Mikey Squirrel, this is, bar none, your BEST parody to date! I loved Space Invaders too. . .Do a performance of this one if you can. . .Top nods from me

(Dec 2.0) Ingenious title sub, and the rest was pure awesome-sauce. High-score: 555. Name: BPC

(Dec 2.4) Great fun, Mikey...shoot up some 5s. p.s. I know nostalgia's a wonderful thing, but who would honestly choose SI over, say, halo 3? Anyone? Thought not...:-)

I remember a colleague writing a space invaders-type game in VB when the first version came out... top speed was still so slow you had time for a coffee before each bomb dropped. It'd probably play OK on one of today's PCs, though. Great title sub, well-executed.

(dec2.4) "I like to kill aliens that look like an octopus" - not one of us here doesn't share those sentiments, Mikey - lol - and the other line that really struck a chord was "wish I was a millionaire" so I could just keep playing space invaders for the REST of my life - I remember feeling that way back then exactly! - 555

Very, very good. Took me right back to university, wasting all my beer money on Asteroids, Pac-Man, Frogger, and yes, Space Invaders. Excellent pacing, excellent parody.

SOTM - I remember when I was playing with Tylver, Liv Tyler that is, she'd make me shoot into space for sure, then I woke up and it was Game Over... :-)

-Originality: (A): There's a lot of common games like Monopoly, Clue, Twister, and Mario that you really could have made a parody of. Instead you chose a game that everybody knows and is still a pretty rare game, and that right there is thinking outside of the box. -Pacing: (A): I think that this was perfectly paced, and I had no trouble whatsoever reading it. -Comedy: (A-): There's not so much that you can do with Space Invaders it being a pretty simple game, but you did a pretty bang up job here coming up with stuff to fill in the blanks. You really should have submitted this one into the Aerosmith round, you probably would have won. -Overall (B+): One of your best. Great idea, very funny, and creative, the only problem I had was the repeating choruses, and that's what marked you down a point, but it was still a pretty impressive parody.

(SOTM-NOV) Now this game is a dinosaur. I got a "TI" computer for Christmas in the early 80s and this game was on it. I can relate. Good one. I played it so much I gave 'em all ASS-teROIDS. That's what they get for coming down butt first.

(SOTM) I liked Space Invaders very much. Still play it when I get the chance!
stuart mcarthur - December 28, 2007 - Report this comment
(SOTM) yes, I remember this from the Decath - this is definitely one of your best Mikey, because it paces SO well to the OS, and the choice of OS for the topic (and the title sub) were perfect - this is a tough SOTM contest already

(SOTM) Still as awesome-sauce as it was when I first read it for Dec 2.0

(SOTM) My comment here hasn't changed either, this is much easier when all the parodies are fresh in your mind.
