Songtekst

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 pinball

He's a pinball wizard
There has 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

Whoa, he ain't got no distractions
Can't hear no buzzes and bells
Don't see lights a-flashin'
He plays by sense of smell
Always has a replay
Never tilts at all
That deaf, dumb and blind kid
Sure plays a mean pinball

He can't beat me now
I've always been the champ
I know every trick
No freak's gonna beat my hand

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

He's a pinball wizard
There has to be a twist
A pinball wizard's
Got such a supple wrist

He's a pinball wizard
He's scored a trillion more
A pinball wizard
The world's new pinball lord

He's scoring more
He's scoring more

I thought I was
The Bally table king
But I just handed
My pinball crown to him
To him
To him
