Music : The Who - Pinball Wizard

 

Ever since I was a young boy,
I've played the silver ball.
From Soho down to Brighton
I must have played them all.
But I ain't seen nothing like him
In any amusement hall
That deaf dumb and blind kid
Sure plays a mean pinball !

He stands like a statue,
Becomes part of the machine.
Feeling all the bumpers
Always playing clean.
He plays by intuition,
The digit counters fall.
That deaf dumb and blind kid
Sure plays a mean pin ball !

He's a pin ball wizard
There has got to be a twist.
A pinball wizard,
S'got such a supple wrist.

'How do you think he does it ?
I don't know !
What makes him so good ?

He ain't got no distractions
Can't hear those buzzers and bells,
Don't see lights a flashin'
Plays by sense of smell.
Always get some replay,
'Ve never seen him fall...
That deaf dumb and blind kid
Sure plays a mean pinball.

I thought I was
The Bally table king.
But I just handed
My pin ball crown to him.

Even my usual table
He can beat my best.
His disciples lead him in
And he just does the rest.
He's got crazy flipper fingers
Never seen him fall...
That deaf dumb and blind kid
Sure plays a mean pinball !

C'est un copain fan des 70's qui m'a donné l'idée de cette rubrique. Du coup, ça m'amuse de farfouiller sur Youtube. Heureuse que ça te plaise aussi! :D
