VERSE 2: (same chords as 1st)
Now virtually everyone's singing
A popular song
But I still believe in
In the excellent joy of the Pong

CHORUS:
To the side to the side to the paddle the paddle
To the paddle the paddle the side to the side
To the side to the side to the paddle the paddle
Pong
Ball in the machine

Now if they take it H.G. Wells

Well, I'll be on the first flight
     A    Bb  B  C   A   Bb B C
To a time before the Kong
E    F   F#       G  E   F F# G
Whatever happened to Pong? 

Then play chorus and end with the fill
