The Lyrics

The Turnpike Theater was a combination indoor/drive-in movie house in East Brunswick, New Jersey. There's a tacky condo development on the site now. The last movie I saw there was "WarGames," in 1983, in which a high school student played by Matthew Broderick unwittingly hacks into the U.S. Department of Defense, and activates a battle simulation created by Dr. Stephen Falken (played by English Shakespearean actor John Wood). And in order to prevent a nuclear war (a.k.a. "DEFCON-1"... no emergency at all is "DEFCON-5"), Broderick's gotta find Falken... Let's just say that, in "Ferris Bueller's Day Off," Broderick had much more flair in using computers for his ends.
(instrumental opening)

You keep saying you ain't seen this movie.
Something called "WarGames," with success.
Kid who's messin' where he shouldn't be messin'.
Computer hackin' into our nation's best.

Reboot this game of Falken.
It's what we gotta do.
Or one of these days his boot
will take us well past DEFCON-2.


Matthew Broderick, later Ferris Bueller.
Ally Sheedy, girl I wished I'd get.
Both of them would one day get much cooler
but starting World War III, they would regret.

Reboot this game of Falken.
It's what we gotta do.
Or one of these days his boot
will take us well past DEFCON-2.


He keeps playin' game he shouldn't be playin'.
He'll set off bombs, the whole world might get burned.
Gotta find the safe password that matches, yeah.
Inventor's location, it's great they learned.

Reboot this game of Falken.
It's what we gotta do.
Or one of these days his boot
will take us well past DEFCON-2.

How about a nice game of chess?
Start playin'!

(instrumental fadeout)
In case anyone's wondering, I'm long since over Ally Sheedy.

Hee...nice job! And I know I've seen the movie...but it was so long ago that I don't remember it.

I will say, however, that I wished that I WAS Ally Sheedy for a while...but that was in the days of "Short Circuit."

but it was the game of tic tac toe that reduced the computer to a shambolic basket-case, wasn't it? - loved the movie (called "War Games" here) and Ally Sheedy (in this movie only) and loved the parody, MP - 555
