The Lyrics

A fellow net friend linked me to this song via YouTube when he stated that there's a speculation Koji Kondo (who composed the soundtracks for many Nintendo games, namely the Super Mario games) interpolated the original song for the overworld theme in Super Mario World. However, this parody is about Pac-Man...
Pac-Man is bright they say
In the arcade that’s a thrill
Pac-Man is here to stay
To where the profits aren’t so stilled

Well, I told my parents on the day I had moved
Don'tcha cry if my money’s gone
You know, there ain't no ghosts gonna knock down
That Pac-Man’s gotta be a-munchin’ on
And I’m singing…

Pac-Man is bright they say
In the arcade that’s a thrill
Pac-Man is here to stay
To where the profits aren’t so stilled

Well, there ain't nobody in this whole wide world
Gonna tell me that I waste my time
I'm just a game lovin’ happy woman
Say, buddy, can you spare me a dime?
Hear me cryin’…

Pac-Man is bright they say
In the arcade that’s a thrill
Pac-Man is here to stay
To where the profits aren’t so stilled

Now I know that when the sun goes down
When I lay my weary head
Galaga, Frogger, or that Donkey Kong
It’s all there when I lay in bed
Easy now…

Pac-Man is bright they say
In the arcade that’s a thrill
Pac-Man is here to stay
To where the profits aren’t so stilled

Pac-Man is bright they say
In the arcade that’s a thrill
Pac-Man is here to stay
To where the profits aren’t so stilled

To where the profits aren’t so stilled…
