Pinball Wizard - Elton John

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 anything like him
In any amusment 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?

He ain't gut no distractions
Can't hear those buzzers and bells.
Don't see lights a-flashin.
Play's by sense of smell.
Always has a replay,
An' never tilts atall
That deaf, dumb, and blind kid
Sure plays a mean pinball!

I thought i was
the Bally table king
But I just handed
My pinball crown to him.

Even at my favourite 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!!!!!
