Coleco and Intellivision, Atari then Activision,
Miyamoto and Nintendo, Plumbers, Donkey Kong

Space Invaders, Pac-Man, Samus and her stellar cans,
Dig Dug, Turbo, Frogger, Q*bert, Mario,
Game Crash '83, adios Atari,
E.T. buried still, Alberquerque landfill

The Wii didn't start the fire,
How we've done some growin' since our cartridge blowin'
The Wii didn't start the fire,
With our fingers bleedin', we were quarter feedin'

NES, Luigi, Bowser, Tetris, Yoshi
Master System, Castlevania, Final Fantasy
Dragon Quest, Mega Man (Classic), Wolfenstein and Bomberman
Zelda rap, look it up, "Your parents help you hook it up."

\\Neo Geo, Genesis, Game Boy, SNES,
Sonic series, Earthworm Jim, Chrono Trigger, "FINISH HIM!"
Carmen Sandiego chase, Kirby likes to stuff his face,
Virtual Boy, what's in store, "And a Nintendo 64!!!"


Star Fox, Rumble Pak, Ocarina, Plumber's back,
GoldenEye, perfect game, Perfect Dark, not the same

Way too many Pokemon, Sims come over while you're gone,

Prince of Persia, Kingdom Hearts, Havoc flailing body parts
WoW arrives, lonely wives, orcs and dwarves and ruined lives!


Santa brought a 360, Blu-ray on the PS3,
Gameboy, second screen, watch your grandma play the Wii,
Space Marines and red rings, let me skip the Cutscenes
Tweens mash classic rock, flimsy plastic head stock

Live thrives, pricks abound, PSN a ghost town
Gabe and Tycho, Mountain Dew, G4, Yahtzee, Chiptune
Motion sensors all the same, Blizzard gives us one campaign
DLC, "Screw the fee!", 3DS and Half-Life 3!

The Wii didn't start the fire,
How we've done some growin' since our cartridge blowin'
The Wii didn't start the fire,
Yeah, gaming's on a role, just look at Uwe Boll

(chorus, fade out)
