The Lyrics

Video games that only let you save at the end of each level are bollocks. Yeah, that about sums it up.
I'm takin' cover under rubble
Shooting monsters who all wanna
Tear the limbs off my mates (mates)
I'd like to pause it, run this gauntlet
Later, but it's crazy
Cause I am unable to save
Can I rest my achin' fingers
I got cramps pulling both triggers
Oh yeah
But on I go, each time I die, gotta reload
Six miles I gotta trudge
To where I was, mate, oh

Repeating this damn level
Feeling quite dishevelled
Copped a bullet, must reload
Complete this, I've got low chances
So all I ask for here
Hey, hey, hey, hey
I'd like more saves
More than one save
Why just one save?

To hell with this crapshoot
Not knowing if I'll make it through
I've had more luck with coins or dice throws (throws)
More checkpoints in between
A life system would be quite neat
At least friend A.I. that ain't low (so low)
This section I keep repeatin'
All the fun has started leakin'
Reload, reload, reload
And my patience is really low
Can I just blow up these schmoes today?

Dead again, game is rend'rin'
Killing all the tension
Forgot what the plot was, bro
Out of bullets for my blaster
All that I ask for here
Hey, hey, hey, hey
Is some more saves
Why just one save?
One lousy save

No matter which gun that I fire
It might get down to the wire
But ev'ry time, I will die
Then I must repeat this shite
What a crazy trial for me
On repeat
No co-op for me
And it's time for tea
But I can't stop, I must complete

This game, I am regrettin'
The high charge for rentin'
Won't beat it before it goes
Cheating shouldn't be the answer
So I still ask for here
Hey, hey, hey, hey
Multiple saves

A.I. won't quit the banter
Go away
Give me (much) more saves
(Could use more saves)
I can't flee
Got one save
Just one save
Why one save?

"Down to the wire" means victory occurring at the last minute. I include this definition because I used the expression without being sure of it's meaning, so I thought I should clear it up in case anyone else gets similarly confused.

So you're basically blaming the game b/c you can't finish your objectives/levels? That's pathetic, weak. Most hardcore gamers in the US finish the entire game in a matter of hours, esp. first person shooters. I suggest that you don't play Grand Theft Auto V or anything that requires tactical skill with simulated firearms!!!

DKTOS, but I do have to admit that video games that require you to save after the levels are an annoyance!

I'm not the biggest video game guy (I pretty much stick with college football or WWE wrestling), but this my favorite Kelly Clarkson song and I think you did a great job with this spoof. Nice work!

I'm not a big gamer either the most I've played was Super Smash Brothers and The Sims but I have played games that require you to do this or you can't save in a certain area or you have to go to a save point and there's not one near you. All big pains in the arse.

I'm starting to sense a theme in this round beyound the actual artist; the first was about an eating contest, the second about a specific PC game and this one about an annoying PC and/or arcade game phenomenon in general...

Yes, Pet Peter, there is a slight meeting of similar minds when the next Artistry round comes up...that is why folks like you should be in it EVERY Round. To the parody... TCOP, you kind of hit it on. the nose in your intro. "That's about it."

Peter, I did not mean to call you a thanks to my stupid phone, (security code FEK..fek!)

I know how you feel, coming from a fellow save scummer.

(Artistry) I both agree and disagree with you TCOP. I do agree these types of games can be so frustrating! But I think that adds to the suspense and difficulty of the game. I wish you would've had a specific game in my for this one. I had trouble grasping it. Masterfully written though!
