FLIGHT 2000

Flight 2000, it’s might arousing
When I reach in my trousers
And I pull out a quarter

You were out of order
Now you’re hotter than ever
And I’m crazy about you
I’m a pinball wizard

That high score’s MY score
Nobody can touch it
So don’t even try

I light your letters up
Knock my ball into your cup
Then I B-L-A-S-T
O-F-F into the sky

Ohhh Flight 2000, you’re a Maltese falcon
With a NASA flier and a bonus multiplier
Your rockets are ready and my paddles are steady
When I aim at your spinner and I dial up a winner

I play every day in the lobby of the Martin
As all my friends walk by
They never stop and chat
They just pat me on the back
Got no time for conversation
It would kill my concentration

Flight Two-Oh-Oh-Oh I hit three in a row-oh
Now it’s all systems “go” I’m like Leonard Nemo-oy
I’m like Spock in the cockpit
I blast off in my rocket
As I hit the final target like a brown Davey Crockett

I lift the fifth ball through the rings of Saturn
Glory will be mine
But hey – what’s going on?
I think I hit the bumper wrong
Saying words no man should utter
As it rolls into the gutter…

Aw well...

Pack Man I love you you’re the game for me
‘cause pinball is for losers.

Muhammad Seven Boston, Massachusetts

Muhammad Seven is an Iranian-American singer/songwriter from Boston. His narrative lyricism pays as much homage to Hafiz and Saadi as it does to Bob Dylan and Leonard Cohen, with deeply personal and political statements nestled amongst metaphors and vivid specificity. You might also listen carefully for the unmistakable influence of ‘90’s era hip-hop. ... more
