about

An original chiptune song, about the classic arcade game "Q*bert".

lyrics

This is a song about Q*bert.
This is a song about Q*bert.
If you ask "What's your favorite game?"
I'll tell you it's Q*bert.
People did songs about Pac-Man.
People did songs about Frogger.
People did songs about Donkey Kong.
No one did a song about Q*bert.

So this is a song about Q*bert.
This is a song about Q*bert.
Hopping 'round his pyramid
each time I drop a quarter.
Gotta turn all the blocks blue!
Gotta turn all the blocks green!
An orange, big-nosed, armless freak
with obsessive compulsive disorder!

This is a song about Q*bert.
This is a song about Q*bert.
Coily is the springy snake
who tries to squash him flat quick.
Q*bert jumps on a rainbow disc.
Coily jumps and falls to his death.
Q*bert is the only guy
who's killed more snakes than St. Patrick.

This is a song about Q*bert.
This is a song about Q*bert.
Red balls bouncing in his path.
I start to feel the pressure.
Ugg is hopping the right walls.
Wrongway's hopping the left walls.
Who taught them to hop that way?
It must be M.C. Escher.

This is a song about Q*bert.
This is a song about Q*bert.
If you say that I'm obsessed,
I'll tell you that I'm not, feeb!
But when Sam and Slick show up,
I swear just like Q*bert.
Using such profanity,
we should call him 'Gilbert Gottlieb'!

This is a song about Q*bert.
This is a song about Q*bert.
The "Saturday Supercade" cartoon
filled me with such radical glee!
He was awesome in "Wreck-It Ralph"
and that ad for Radio Shack.
'Cause of him I now know how
to work my joystick diagonally!

This is a song about Q*bert.
This is a song about Q*bert.
Born in '82 when people said,
"Take off, you hozer!"
But now after 32 years,
there's finally a song about Q*bert,
and I will keep playing it
'til I'm the Supreme Noser!
