Track Name: "The Video Game Ref" - Theme Song
So you want to buy some games,
But they all just seem the same:
Boring, dull, or really lame.
Well, you need a guy to make a call.

You’re completely out of cash,
Tired of playing only Flash,
Can’t judge treasure from the trash,
Well, we’ve got a guy to make your call:

The Video Game Ref!

He will teach you all you need
To own at games like Centipede.
He will show you the delights
Of pixelated 8-bit sprites.

He’s bringing back the ghosts of the past
To send the new games PACking,
‘Cause leaping barrels and saving princesses
Is what your life is lacking!

We’re going in to find out
If they’re in or they’re out
Or just particularly foul!

The Video Game Ref!
