Ever since I was a young boyI've played the silver ballFrom Soho down to BrightonI must have played them allBut I ain't seen nothing like himIn any amusement hallThat deaf, dumb and blind kidSure plays a mean pinball
He stands like a statueBecomes part of the machineFeeling all the bumpersAlways playing cleanPlays by intuitionThe digit counters fallThat deaf, dumb and blind kidSure plays a mean pinball
He's a pinball wizardThere has to be a twistA pinball wizardGot such a supple wrist
How do you think he does it?I don't knowWhat makes him so good?
Ain't got no distractionsCan't hear no buzzers and bellsDon't see no lights a-flashinPlays by sense of smellAlways gets the replayNever see him fallThat deaf, dumb, and blind kidSure plays a mean pinball
I thought I wasThe bally table kingBut I just handedMy pinball crown to him
He put up my favorite tableHe can beat my bestHis disciples lead him inAnd he just does the restHe's got crazy flipper fingersNever see him fallThat deaf, dumb and blind kidSure plays a mean pinball
