lyrics

my only childhood friend
was a little box with two knobs
my obsession was such
that I ignored my every other job
I got in a lot of trouble, but

pong, I love you pong
for you I write this song
for you and your square ball
I bounced you off the wall
when I was on my own
I did not feel so alone
oh, pong, you were with me all along

sometimes my brothers would play
but mostly it was me and you
and a little black and white TV
and oh, so many hours flew
you might think that they were wasted, but

pong, I love you pong
for you I write this song
for you and your square ball
I bounced you off the wall
when I was on my own
I did not feel so alone
oh, pong, you were with me all along

nowadays you're retro
but I was with you from the get go
you were just... the... thing
games got much more complicated
but for me they never rated
you got everything... just right

you might think that I was wasted, but

pong, I love you pong
for you I write this song
for you and your square ball
I bounced you off the wall
when I was on my own
I did not feel so alone
oh, pong, you were with me all along
