Whatever Happened to Pong?

Frank Black

My brother and me used to play it down at a bar
Taking money from guys more used to playing the cards

Paddle the paddle to side to the side
To the side to the paddle the paddle
Paddle the paddle to side to the side
Pong
Ball in the machine

Now virtually everyone's singing a popular song
Yeah, but still I belive in the excellent joy of the Pong


To the side to the side to the paddle the paddle
Paddle the paddle to side to the side
To the side to the side to the paddle the paddle
Pong
Ball in the machine

Now if they take it H. G. Wells
Well I'll be on the first flight
To a time before a Kong
Whatever happened to Pong?

To the side to the side to the paddle the paddle
Paddle the paddle to side to the side
To the side to the side to the paddle the paddle
Pong
Ball in the machine
