Ever since I was a young boy I played the silver ball
From Soho down to Brighton I must have played 'em all
But I ain't seen nothin' like him in any amusement hall
That deaf, dumb an' blind kid sure plays a mean pinball

He stands like a statue, becomes part of the machine
Feelin' all the bumpers, always playin' clean
Plays by intuition, the digit counters fall
That deaf, dumb an' 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 those buzzes and bells
Don't see lights aflashin', plays by sense of smell
Always gets a replay, never seen him fall
That deaf, dumb an' blind kid sure plays a mean pinball

I thought I was the body table king
But I just handed my pinball crown to him

Even on my favorite table, he can't beat my best
His disciples lead 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
