lyrics

One Friday he showed up at our house
With an Atari 2600 and Pitfall! on cartridge
Mom didn't know if he stole it, or borrowed it, or owed it for a bet
He wouldn't answer her when she asked where he got it

I played Pitfall! all weekend and got over 20,000 points
We took a photo to send in for the badge
But it didn't turn out
And he came and took the system back

Later he showed up with dozens of packs of
Empire Strikes Back trading cards and gave them to me
Mom didn't know if they were stolen or what
There were so many cards I almost got the whole series
