The Lyrics

You went uptown riding in your mom's car
Into a mall that was so far
You had the fifty dollars
Right in the palm of your hand
And when you walk up to the cashier
To buy the darn thing
And your brain is so happy to see
Go on and celebrate at home
And go off and play on your own

Because you had to buy a Gameboy, Color
Other ones are so advanced
You had to buy Gameboy SP
All your friends were so jealous
That you had the new Gameboy version
You know what the machine is about
You also played Pokemon and car racing
You had to buy a Gameboy last night

They were all shocked when you lost your mind
The Gameboy had taken over your head
And the story of your latest record
Kept playing in bed
But now you just can't stop
Playing the darn machine
And you're never gonna be the same
I'll give you one hint, sonny
Your gonna rot your brain


Well, it's no big sin that your mom handed it back in
If you heard what she tried to say
But you were crying way too loud
You couldn't live without a Gameboy

Boohoo, boohoo, boohoo, hah! You lost your Gameboy, oh yeah!
