Elton John - "Pinball Wizard Pete Townshend Released In 1976" lyrics

Ever since I was a young boy I played the silver ball

From Soho down to Brighton I must have played them all

But I ain't seen nothing like him in any amusement hall

That deaf, dumb and blind kid sure plays a mean pinball

He stands like a statue, becomes part of the machine
Feeling all the bumpers, always playing clean
Plays by intuition, the digit counters fall

That deaf, dumb and blind kid sure plays a mean pinball

He's a pinball wizard, there has to be a twist
A pinball wizard's got such a supple wrist

How do you think he does it' I don't know
What makes him so good'

Ain't got no distractions, can't hear no buzzes or bells

Don't see lights a-flashing, plays by sense of smell
Always gets a replay, never seen him fall

That deaf, dumb and blind kid sure plays a mean pinball

I thought I was the Bally table king

But I just handed my pinball crown to him

Even on my favourite table, he can beat my best

His disciples lean him in and he just does the rest
He's got crazy flipper fingers, never seen him fall

That deaf, dumb and blind kid sure plays a mean pinball
