Ever since I was a young boy,
I've 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.
He 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 buzzers and bells,
Don't see no lights a-flashin'
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 favorite table
He can 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.

1:30 am Party Music. Put in on and half the crowd will leave. Half will stay, but they're the one's you want to party with anyway.

This is an example of something that shouldn't have been recorded.

Yeee-haaw! {#Bananasplit}

PUDDLES!!! I love him!

 
No clowns for me please! I'm OK if I don't look at him....
Never heard Puddles before, but what a great mix of Johnny Cash and The Who.
Transfers great to country , only caught a bit of it  , co worker would not shut up , kept talking thru the song telling me how great Puddles was , that he'd never heard this one ,, of course not cause he's still talking !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Obviously, there is a visual component too - so if your curious check that out.

I'm a fan - 
Great mashup ... don't be distracted by the clown makeup.  This guy can sing!
A bit unusual, but quite likeable.
OK, this is odd.  But weird, in an eye-grabbing brainworm way.
Uh, what?!
Nope.  PSD.
Prefer original music not stealing everybody else's tunes and lyrics.  A solid one (1) rating.
Excellent mashup, with or without clown makeup.
Great to hear Puddles on here!

Thanks Bill - I needed that this morning. 
You should check out Haysee Dixie and their take on AC/DC. Superb. {#Wink}
Please NO   {#Eek}
This guy was on America's Got Talent.

I thought he was hilarious and should've gone further in the competition.

Song made me chuckle and then I looked up who it was.

Now I've fallen out of my chair laughing!

Love Puddles!!  Such a great character, and he can really belt it out, too :)
 
Yeah, he's great.
{#Lol}
  got a twisted Waylon Jennings thing to it this.. {#Cheesygrin}
No covers, RP!
Follow with Rodeohead!
He got voted off on America's got talent. I guess he's an aquired taste.{#Crown}

LOVE P3! More please. Yay Bill for taking this risk!

 
Agreed!  I'm not expert on his musical output although from what I've seen, his clown outfit and tallness helps him "stand-out" in the crowd...having a strong and listenable voice is the cherry on top (or the red ball on the nose.)  Kudos to Mike Geier for continuing the idea that Puddles is someone else entirely....very inventive, fun and enjoyable.  LONG LIVE RP and BillG's eclecticism!!  An 8 from silly in Seattle
The Who's answer to Dread Zeppelin?
Love Puddles!!  Such a great character, and he can really belt it out, too :)
just saw this on facebook the other day, quite the mashup, i like it.
When I first heard the first few lines - I thought
Did Pete Townsend borrow a line from Johnny Cash. 
 
Not helping my coulrophobia.
Kinda weird.
Kinda like it.

I need help....
This is about as abstract as it gets. The video is a must see.
I'd hit PSD but... I'm... laughing... 
LOVE P3! More please. Yay Bill for taking this risk!
I've heard better covers from Puddles, but he is a riot. 
haha!  Pretty good.
Cracks me up every time!
Delightfully silly!
PUDDLES!!! I love him!
strange
Wow - this is out of left field!
