The Lyrics

Oregon Trail
The X box and PVP
There wasn't none of that crap back in 1990
We didn't know about a World Wide Web
It was a whole different game being played back when I was a kid

Wanna get down in a cool way
Picture yourself on a beautiful day
acid wash osh kosh, playing with toys
Just walkin' in style with a portable gameboy
No, you would play oregon train
Yeah, you could have some fun on oregon trail

Flashback, '92
Another fall back at elementary school
adding programs not so cool
Sometimes we'd fake sick and watch Nicktoons
drinkin' soup with our jammies on
We'd watch zelda and mario
We were too damn poor to buy Nintendo tapes
There was no other good time to want to be inside
My mama wanna watch that TV all goddamn night

we would listen to the teacher all day
In the hope that she would say
You get five minutes to play
You'd have to wait but you could play it on Oregon Trail
Yeah, you could waste your game time on Oregon Trail
I can still hear Teacher say "Girl Turn that game down!"

"Aw, Mom. Not that show again! I don't wanna watch that show!
Can't we watch The Noozles or David the Gnome or something cool?
Turn it off!"

Things changed back in '95
We were all growing up on the in and the outside
Everyone else was going to SIS
I went to private school with a bunch of rich kids

I remember 1997
We all had to learn how to type via mavis beacon
I got a computer on Christmas day
I dreamed that one day my friends would install Warcraft
and teach me to play
Teach me to play...

There isn't any place that I need to go
There isn't anything that I need to know
I didn't learn from that 4 bit program

Yeah when things get stupid and I just don't know
Where to find my happy
I think back to the golden days of Oregon Trail
You can play forever on Oregon Trail
You can play forever on Oregon Trail

I don't know the song, so I really can't vote... but yeah, I sure remember that game. Played it back when it was on like 8 or 16 color monitors. Fond memories.

Turkey, you're right. It was a hit in the current decade, 2000s. But it was recorded in ninety-nine.
