Becomes part of the machine

Always playing clean
He plays by intuition

He ain't got no distractions
Can't hear no buzzers and bells
Don't see lights a-flashin'
Plays be sense of smell
Always gets a replay
I've 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
