The Lyrics

Well, I don't know where they come from but they sure do come
I hope they comin' for me
And I don't know how they do it but they sure do it good
I hope they're doin' it for free

They give me Tempest fever
Tempest fever

Well, the first time that I played it I was just ten years old
I found it at an arcade
And I went to see the cashier for some quarters galore
I think I played it some more

They give me Tempest fever
Tempest fever
I got a coin-op fever
The Tempest fever

It's nothin' dangerous
I feel no pain
I've got the choo-choo train
You know you got it when you, you're going insane
It makes a grown man cry, cry, oh won't you play my turn

Well, I shoot the pulsars and the flippers and the fuseballs as well
They know they gettin' it from me
They know just where to go when they're going to hell
They know I'm doin' it for free*

Tempest fever
They got a coin-op fever
The Tempest fever

Tempest fever
Tempest fever
Tempest fever
Tempest fever

Tempest fever
Tempest fever

I've had lots of quarters for a while and wish there were some arcades still around
