Does it run
Does it crawl
Does it move around,
My favorite video arcade game
Has got me hooked year round.

It is fast and furrious,
I must play it again,
The memory of the video game
could never cause me pain.

Years go by, I'm lookin' through a video arcade,
And there's my good old Centipede, waiting to be played.

To fill my need
The tokens that I do feed
I'm playin' with the Centipede
Playin' with the Centipede

To fill my need
The tokens that I do feed

Playin' with the Centipede

Slipped a token into the slot
Then began to play
Aiming with my joystick
Began to fire away

I was shakin' in my shoes
When a spider got too close
Where will the Centipede go
No one ever knows.

Some insect's coming towards me
Dropping more mushrooms
From every which way
The danger always looms.

The game's on speed
The more bugs that it does breed
I'm playin' with the Centipede
Playin' with the Centipede

The game's on speed
The more bugs that it does breed

Playin' with the Centipede

Na-na-na-na-na-na
Na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na
Na-na-na-na-na-na
Na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na

Na-na-na-na-na-na
Na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na
Na-na-na-na-na-na
Na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na

It's addicting, yes it's true
I must play it some more
Just a few more rounds
And I will have the high score

Sell my car? Yes I will
Just trade it for tokens
I'll feed them all into the game
The passion never ends

A part of me has just been ripped,
The money from my bank is stripped.
Oh no, I can't delay it
Oh yes, I must play it.

My nose does bleed,
The warnings I will not heed
I'm playin' with the Centipede
Playin' with the Centipede

My nose does bleed,
The warnings I will not heed

Playin' with the Centipede

Na-na-na-na-na-na
Na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na
Na-na-na-na-na-na
Na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na
