THE BALLAD OF JACOB LEE

Now gather ‘round
For the tale of the greatest that ever was
It’s the story of Jacob Lee

SMASH IT ON THE CABINET

One day a young man found a secret alley
With a secret arcade where he won World Rally
And he beat Mortal Kombat and Killer Instinct
“I've got a special game for you,” the owner said with a wink
“Inside of it's the ghost of Jacob lee
The greatest arcadist since 1983”
The ghost jumped out of the game and said, “I'm not what I seem. In-
Stead of a spirit
I'm a soul collecting demon”

You know it's Jacob Lee
From 1983

“Now we fight for your soul,”
Said the electric devil
“In my video realm
On a hidden level

Where you will fail
Because I always win
I'll add your name to hi-score list of the souls trapped within”

They played Asteroids and Blasteroids and Hardcore Pong
Then he realized that he had the magic all along
With a half circle back,
He tossed a hadouken

The demon didn't block in time and then the curse was broken

YEAH
Hardcore Pong in the place to be
Comin’ from Sydney, Australia
And Chicago, Illinois
Brought to you by Danny Paul by way of Florida
We’re takin’ on the champion

SMASH IT ON THE CABINET
